Recovery Dog Tags

Stephanie P

I make these Clean and Sober gifts and jewelry individually in my studio. I started making them years ago to help redirect my energy away from using. Now I’m passing it on.

Everything is made extra-strong because I know many people keep these special pieces close to them 24/7 as touchstones or constant reminders to stay clean and sober.

Why are the military dog tags so popular? Because the military dog tag is a powerful symbol of being in battle; in this case, the battle against addiction or alcoholism. People in recovery are at war with addiction along with their comrades in arms in the fellowship.

These dog tags are authentic military issue so they are the real deal. I carefully select them but please expect a few minor blemishes in the metal. Tarnish-free stainless steel dog tags are sure to please men or women. These very casual pieces are versatile and make great recovery gifts from loved ones who attend meetings where sobriety anniversaries are celebrated. They make great keepsakes or touchstones that can also be personalized with a special message or date. They can be collected as milestones for their achievement. Dog tags are worn by both men and women. A finer more jewelry grade version is also available in the designer series.
