How Does Your Story Support Your Personal Recovery?

by Barbara McClane

Personal recovery is supported by having the ability to be vulnerable, transparent, and inclusive. Taking chances by being honest about my lived experiences opened my mind to explore my recovery journey at a wider angle. As it widened, more connections were made. I learned through others in a 12-step program that personal recovery depends on unity. 


My addiction wanted me to be separated from others and live in isolation, so I did that for many years. Living in the present, I yearn for stories that connect, align, and support my recovery. My life story has had bitter moments. During my addiction, my life consisted of stealing from family and friends and spending time in institutions. My younger years were spent running away, dropping out of high school, and in teenage prostitution. I experienced a lot of emotional and behavioral problems, and I carried that baggage for a long time. As part of my story, seeking outside help was necessary if I was going to move away from surviving life and towards living life.

Sharing my lived experiences helped me find like-minded people in recovery. Meeting others along life's journey aligned our human connection spiritually and gave us the ability to share sacred stories. As people lent me their knowledge and acceptance, I learned that being transparent was a vital element on my part. Telling the truth to others allowed me to get the help and guidance I needed. Adapting to this new mindset was essential to my overall well-being in recovery. Freedom of speech is anchored in one's story, and allowing oneself to tell the full, truthful story makes a difference.

I am grounded in my spiritual life by having a supportive system with my spiritual leaders. It is my story's cornerstone. My higher power has been there for me. Lifting with skilled hands, watching, shifting, and moving me out of harmful situations. All those unsettling roads, misguided situations, and battling from within led me on my recovery journey. My highest support comes from above. I am comforted and strengthened by a higher presence. Recovery is a process, and with this support, I was able to rebuild my life in its entirety. 

I believe my story can be beneficial to support others in recovery, as it is a story of restoration, revival, and renewal. I am blessed beyond measure through compassion and connection, which assisted me with changing my life. As my spirit grew, so did my story by having meaning, hope, and purpose.

I have built solid relationships over several decades as a direct result of staying in recovery. Strong hope becomes the balm as we gather and relate to one another. My friendships are deeply rooted, connecting every fiber of our hearts. My family and friends inspire me with their love. By being vulnerable and transparent and allowing others to see me and care for me, I have rebuilt my life through personal recovery. I am alive and well-centered on my journey.

Thoughts of suicide and attempts are among the most marginalized human experiences. The experience itself is isolating, and many people with suicidal urges carry shame about their feelings. At Alt2Su our aim is not only to provide support, but to take the shame and stigma off of these experiences. Alt2su takes a different perspective than traditional Suicide Prevention. There is no referral or assessment process. There is no formal attendance taken at any group. This is a safe space for people to share their experiences without fear of shame, stigma, or hospitalization. To learn more about our group values click the link above to view our website.

  • Learn skills to cope and negotiate with voices to build a more positive relationship with the voices.
  • Research shows that control over voices is possible and benefits clinical outcomes.[i]
  • Voice hearers can learn to have pride in their experience and to give their voices personal and positive meaning.
  • Learn to no longer be dominated by ones voices, and make their own choices.


The Maastricht Interview is a questionnaire that includes questions related to the experience of voice hearing and paranoia.

The interview is a 1:1 approach, and conducted between 6-8 sessions.

The interview encourages the participant to explore the experience of voice hearing, built trust, openness, and understanding in their own experience. This occurs in a structured and supportive environment, led by trained Maastricht’s Guides.

The outcome is a document written fully in the words of the participant, outlines their unique lived experience, as well as identified points of interest to work towards personal recovery.

The act of documenting ones experience can be validating to the Voice Hearer. With continued conversation, ultimately reducing internalized stigma, and promoting social engagement.

April 08, 2024: The End of the World | Will Hall | Madness Radio

What can R.D. Laing, madness, and Star Trek teach us about the end of the world – and saving it? Will Hall reads “Can Madness Save the World? Where R.D. Laing—and Star Trek—Meet,” published on Mad In America March 14, 2024. The essay draws on the original series Star Trek episode City on the Edge of Forever and on The Obvious, Laing’s speech at the 1967 Dialectics Of Liberation Congress.
