Voices for Recovery
I am one of the luckiest people in the world! It is truly how I feel. I am in my second decade of recovery from substance abuse. Through my recovery, I have opened numerous programs to help people like me. In one program, men coming out of prison can be assessed and evaluated for further treatment. I am able to provide hope by my example of recovery and peer mentoring. The trust that is given to me by others in recovery is inspirational.
I am someone with a lot to offer. Through recovery, I was given the chance to prove that. Now I get to do what I love, all while making a living and proving to others that recovery is possible. I feel like the luckiest man in the world, and there are many men and women who will feel the same way if given the chance.
