One way 1Voice provides peer support is by their ‘Challenge 2 Change‘ meeting. Here is 1Voice’s description of the meeting:
Challenge 2 Change was started approximately 6 1/2 years ago. It is a peer support group, in which we learn and share experiences with each other so that we may change old behaviors that lead to criminal conduct and substance use. We learn a C.B.T. approach to in addressing our old negative thought patterns that keep us from a pro-social life that we strive hard for. This has been a huge key process in my recovery. This evidenced-based practice was not offered when I was released from treatment. I was motivated to start this peer support group to give this opportunity to others with hope that
they may benefit their recovery as well as I have. I know how difficult it can be to maintain recovery, but we can and do stay ahead of our diseases with positive support from others that know what it is like to face the struggle. If you are reading this, and you know someone struggling with finding their recovery path, bring them to check out our groups. You can come as well! This group is free and open to anyone who has a willingness for improvement in their lives. Come challenge yourself to change for the better.
As mentioned, 1Voice is active in their community and holds several events each year to help raise awareness and funds for recovery. They also hold these events to show society that recovery is possible and we do recover. These events are a great way to be involved and to show people that there is a life and excitement outside of addiction.
