About Us

Seeds of New Leaf is a nonprofit organization that is breaking barriers for people in recovery for substance use disorders.  We believe that nothing should stand in the way of recovery for those who want it in our community.

Seed of New Leaf was founded by the daughters of Michael T. White. They grew up by his side, in the world of recovery.  When Mike passed away in 2016, he was 20 years sober and continuing to impact the lives of others in our community - one recovery story at a time. Seeing first hand how one man's recovery can change the lives of everyone around them, Seeds of New Leaf is a continuation of his work.  

With love,

Mike's girls

Recover Boldly Campaign

Reducing the stigma of substance use disorders in BIPOC communities. https://newleaf1216.com/recover-boldly/ 

Recover Boldly is a campaign led by recipients of this Nspire grant – the Seeds of New Leaf, Martin & Muir, Joshua Community Connectors and Kentucky Harm Reduction Coalition. The purpose of RecoverBoldly is to decrease the stigma associated with receiving  treatment for SUD and increase access to treatment and resources for the BIPOC community. We want people to see themselves when they think of recovery. We hope for them to visualize themselves recovering, BOLDLY, and without shame. And to be aware of the presence of providers/resources that understand not only the substance use disorder but that can appreciate the cultural context and ramifications.
