Stephen Hill’s journey is a comeback story from stigma and struggle to
resilience and recovery. Stephen is the founder of Speak Sobriety, a young person in recovery, bestselling author, recovery coach, and a fierce attorney advocating for treatment over incarceration.
Stephen will share his experience with external motivators through the juvenile justice system, loss of friendships, and personal hardships. He will also talk about personal resiliency, internal motivators, and personal changes in behavior and thinking that ultimately contributed to sobriety and a more fulfilling trajectory in life. Stephen’s experience highlights the interplay of substance use and mental health education, intentionally increasing hopefulness, and the power of personal choice.
