September 2015

We hope everyone enjoyed the last few weeks of the warm weather! It’s finally fall and we are very excited about the BIGVISION developments that have taken place since our last newsletter.

In September, we hosted a viewing party of an online presentation at the White House in celebration of National Recovery Month. The Office of National Drug Control Policy hosted the online event with a focus on youth in recovery. Christina Huffington, daughter of The Huffington Post co-founder, Arianna Huffington, moderated a panel of guest speakers who discussed their time in recovery and answered questions that had been tweeted to them earlier that day. The panel shared some very moving stories that inspired our own discussion among our BIGVISION guests. We discussed some of the major issues facing youth in recovery and told our own stories relating to these issues. Hearing everyone discuss their personal journeys, and how hard they are working towards sobriety, was uplifting and emotional.
