The mission of the “Helping Others” Research Project at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, Division of Child Psychiatry is to improve the quality of life for youth, families, and communities by providing a continuum of scientific information, education, and personal experiences on the role of service in addiction recovery.
If you are a professional you will find a wealth of information of how helping helps the helper and related resources. Our work explores the many ways individuals help others as a part of their program of recovery. We examine this dynamic mechanism of behavioral change, which is vital to sober living.
If you are in recovery you will find resources here that support how to live clean. Shared experiences of helping others are inspiring to us all. Our website is a tribute to the ways in which service is meaningful to helpers in recovery. By helping others, you will be helping yourself too.
