What Is Story Corps?
Story Corps is an oral history project with the goal of creating a platform for our staff, alumni, community members, and consumers to share their experience, strength, and hope with our current residential population. Story Corps occurs nightly Monday through Thursday and consists of a structured interview between a host and a Storyteller. The Story Corps host serves as an interview guide for our Storytellers as they share their experience of addiction and recovery.
The program includes a wide variety of recovery stories including stories of personal recovery from substance use, process addictions, codependency, and adult children of alcoholics/addicts. Story Corps helps to widen the lens of what recovery looks like, how it is achieved and maintained, and to instill hope in those who are early in their own recovery process.
