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 youths, families, and communities by providing a continuum of scientific information, education, and personal experiences on the role of service in addiction recovery. Science to date tells us that adults who help others in 12-step programs of recovery double their chances of staying sober. While the disease of addiction often begins in adolescence, we know little about how youths help their peers to stay sober. Our goal is to further dialogue on 12th Step experiences from our nation’s children themselves, wherever they may be on their personal journey of recovery. Through scientific inquiry and personal sharing of 12th Step experiences, our research team is uncovering the practical, accessible, and profound ways that our children are helping others in recovery.
