News & Happenings
The purpose behind the JTAC StoryCorps Project is to break the stigma surrounding addiction and recovery. The StoryCorps Project asks individuals to share their personal stories and experiences with addiction and recovery. The stories will be recorded and shared on the internet through JTAC social media pages. Through StoryCorps, the stories are also archived at the Library of Congress.
Addiction is a disease that affects not only the individual but also their family, their friends, and their community. According to Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, “Drug use is on the rise in this country and 23.5 million Americans are addicted to alcohol and drugs. That’s approximately one in every 10 Americans over the age of 12—roughly equal to the entire population of Texas. But only 11 percent of those with an addiction receive treatment.”
One of the greatest barriers to individuals receiving treatment is the stigma surrounding addiction. By sharing our stories with each other we are working to normalize addiction and break the stigma. Addiction touches so many lives and by expressing ourselves through various art forms we can break down barriers and create a culture of acceptance on this campus. With Recovery Housing coming to Stockton University in fall of 2017, we need to start the dialogue surrounding this issue. The JTAC StoryCorps Project is a way to introduce this important topic to our community.

Are you interested in sharing a story related to addiction, recovery, or stigma? Would you be willing to be interviewed by a Stockton Student?
