I was desperate for as much support as possible after I was discharged from inpatient treatment last year. I am grateful to have found ANAD’s Peer Support Mentorship Program and for the care taken in making my match. We connected immediately on a level that was unexpected and extraordinary.MarissaANAD Beneficiary
Becoming a Peer Support Mentor was one of the most meaningful choices I have ever made in my life. My deep and immediate connection with my mentee began a journey that is leading to a lifelong friendship. I am so grateful that ANAD brought us together.ChrisANAD Volunteer
ANAD has been an instrumental piece of my recovery journey. ANAD's support groups have been a lifeline for me. Whether online or in person, knowing that I can talk to others in the same situation gives me the resolve to keep going. I can't thank ANAD enough for the difference they have made for me.NicoleANAD Beneficiary
