Nearly 21 million Americans have at least one addiction, but research shows that only 10% of them seek treatment help. 

It takes strength and perseverance to seek help. Recovery is a process that takes time and can be difficult, so it is important to recognize individuals who are taking those crucial steps. 

The Lost Dreams Awaken Scholarship is intended to help a college student in recovery from substance abuse or alcohol addiction. The goal is to give people in recovery an opportunity that will help them on their path.

You must be an undergraduate or graduate school student in recovery, clean of substances or alcohol for at least one year to be eligible. To apply, explain what recovery means to you.

What recovery means to me. I will never forget what it feels like to not be able to look at yourself in the mirror, because you cannot stand to face what you’ve done to yourself. Recovery has giving me my life back. A life that I can be proud of. It’s given me my soul back. It’s given me my family back. It’s give me my dreams back. Today this precious gift of recovery means the world to me. I have 4 years 2 months and 17 days clean from heroin, crack, and methadone. I work on my recovery every day. I make 12 step meetings, I call people in recovery, I talk to my sponsor, and I sponsor other women in recovery. Being able to share my story with others who struggle to stay clean is one of the greatest gifts of being in recovery. It means so much to me to look at an addict whose struggling to kick opioids and tell them to hold on, you can make it, just don’t give up, if I can do it so can you.
