OUR MISSION

Leslie and Lindsey Glass

Located in Sarasota Florida and Los Angeles California, Reach Out Recovery has a worldwide audience for its more than 1,500 original articles that simplify complicated medical and psychological information. Reach Out Recovery welcomes submissions from health and wellness organizations as well as experts on relationships, addiction, recovery, education for teens and all aspects of the healthy lifestyle. The company has published books including, 100 Tips for Growing Up, My 20 Years of Recovery, by Lindsey Glass; The Teen Guide To Health, What Every Teen Needs to Know, by Leslie Glass, workbooks and other tools for recovery and a healthy lifestyle. The website has daily updates, journal prompts, interactive content, daily quotes, and an active social media platform.

ROR was created by Leslie Glass and her daughter Lindsey Glass, who themselves traveled the recovery journey from the chaos of family dysfunction and substance use in the teen years through the slow process of transformation to a decade of recovery success.

“We had no roadmap or reliable sources of information to help us build a new foundation to support our recovery and felt isolated and alone in our struggle to achieve a new and better normal. We knew other families were just as in the dark.”

As we developed ROR, we realized that the focus has always been on the substance users. All conversations have revolved around what to do and how to treat substance addictions. Addiction may have taken center stage in the public consciousness, but only 1 in 9 people who need help actually receive it, even with addiction deaths at an all time high. Even sadder, family members receive virtually no attention at all. We want to change that.
