Use your social media skills to support addiction recovery.

Strides in Recovery is a Los Angeles based nonprofit dedicated to helping people overcome addiction. Working collaboratively with addiction treatment providers and other recovery communities, we lead goal-oriented group running and walking programs for people with substance use disorders. Our recovery-focused messaging promotes mental, emotional and physical healing, while reinforcing the life skills and mindset needed to support long term sobriety. Our welcoming and supportive environment promotes a sense of community and belonging for all.

In your role, working remotely a few hours a week, you'll create and manage content about the many ways exercise supports long term sobriety. Your goal will be to raise awareness of the work we are doing and to generate support from potential volunteers, staff, treatment providers, donors, and sponsors.

The first-year relapse rate after treatment is 40-60%, and overdoses killed 90,000 Americans in the past year. You will be part of bringing those numbers down. You will be helping change lives and save lives. You will be supporting sobriety, one stride at a time.

If you choose to apply for this role, please provide a short description of your experience with social media, e.g., who you were targeting, what goals you were trying to achieve, and how you knew your posts were effective. Thank you.

Bringing the healing power of exercise to addiction recovery communities.

Description

Strides in Recovery is a Los Angeles based nonprofit dedicated to helping people overcome addiction. Working collaboratively with addiction treatment providers and other recovery communities, we lead goal-oriented group running and walking programs for people with substance use disorders. Our recovery-focused messaging promotes mental, emotional and physical healing, while reinforcing the life skills and mindset needed to support long term sobriety. Our camaraderie, support, and warmth offer a sense of community and belonging to all.

Here's what some of our participants have said about their experience:

"I run with the team because it makes me feel like I'm part of something special. It taught me how to keep pushing forward and not give up."
-Noah M.

"Training taught me to keep going and hold on even when I don't want to."
-Jillian C.

"It was a great experience showing me that I could change in recovery. At first it was hard to go even a small distance. But, by the end of the training, I was much stronger and could go the distance. I can go the distance in recovery too."
-Stan R

"Training showed me that this isn't going to be easy and that life isn't always going to be easy either. Sometimes you have to push through the tough times and stay on the right path. You'll eventually get to your destination."
Amy P

"Being part of this team makes me feel like I have a family again."
