Recovery is Possible

Today, I enjoyed the annual Christmas party with my co-workers – lots of good food, laughs, catching up with the other end of the building 🙂

This was topped off by a visit from some former clients sharing updates since leaving the program & their recovery. It’s important to remember why we do what we do each day. I’ve often wondered about clients I have worked with in the past, even from the early 90s, so this really touched me. Even though I no longer work directly with clients, I like knowing that I have helped behind the scenes.
To my co-workers past & present and those dealing with addiction (either yours or your loved ones), keep the faith, hope & strength. Recovery is possible.
