World-Wide Recovery Advocacy- Thuy Smith International

Addictions is not an individual problem, it is a community health problem. It affects everyone. However, with opportunity for recovery, everyone also benefits.

Healthy individuals equal healthy families and healthy communities.

  • Bridging the gap (Integration rather than separation)
  • Promoting Awareness regarding a health issue / illness that affects everybody in our community
  • Advocacy -addressing the shame, stigma, and discrimination through education and understanding

Together we can make a difference  

-Celebrating people in recovery and celebrating those that help make that possible.

-Supporting and educating families and the community on the family and other societal aspects of the drug and alcohol problems in our communities.

  1. Hi Thuy,

    This is Terri Noel- the ELL coordinator at the Altoona School District. I realized I lost your email, and wanted to get in touch with you. We are enrolling two new students who have recently moved here from Vietnam (one in the middle school and one in the high school) and I’ll be looking for some community connections to help them. Could you email me when you have a chance? Thanks so much!
