Kevin Alter created “The Addict’s Diary” so that people would have a place online to share their failures, successes, and lessons they have learned throughout their path to recovery from addiction. Empowering people to speak up, the platform allows those affected by substance abuse to spread their story, offering a sense of catharsis and community while informing the unaware of the gruesome realities of this epidemic.
Alter thinks people who have struggled with substance abuse can relate to these confessions because it’s more or less exactly what they’ve been through, but those who haven’t fallen victim to it empathize as well. And you have to admit, there’s something intrinsically human in suffering and persevering against the odds.
