We Do Recover

Y.E.T. is an acronym within 12-step recovery circles, stands for “You’re Eligible Too,” highlighting the universal accessibility of support and treatment for addiction. It emphasizes that anyone can face the challenges of addiction, and thus, everyone is eligible for recovery support, regardless of their past or the severity of their addiction.

A secondary interpretation, “You’ll End Up There,” serves as a cautionary note about the potential severe consequences of continued substance abuse without seeking help. These consequences can include divorce, job loss, hospitalization, accidents, incarceration, or even death. This dual meaning of Y.E.T. encapsulates both the inclusivity of recovery programs and the urgency of addressing addiction.

In summary, Y.E.T. reflects key principles of 12-step programs: the belief in the possibility of recovery for everyone and the importance of seeking support to avoid the dire consequences of unchecked addiction.
