Why do some people succeed in overcoming addictions while others relapse, at great cost to their health, their families and even their lives? The International Quit & Recovery Registry wants to find out!

The Registry seeks to further the understanding of recovery to help those struggling with addiction. Any individual who is in recovery, from any addiction, is invited to register as a Recovery Hero at quitandrecovery.org. All that is required to register is a valid email address, and the completion of a quick, confidential online survey. After registering, Recovery Heroes may be asked to participate in the completion of future online questionnaires, web-based behavioral tasks, or participation in more in-depth studies at the Addiction Recovery Research Center at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, in Roanoke, VA. All participation is confidential and voluntary.

All Recovery Heroes are also invited to share their story of recovery, to offer hope and inspiration to those struggling with addiction.

Not in recovery yourself, but know someone who is? Tell them about the Registry! Help us help others.

The Registry is a non-profit research collaboration and is not associated with any treatment facility or fellowship.
