“I feel so grateful to have been given this opportunity to participate in helping another addict get sober. See I understand the power of addiction because I myself am a recovering alcoholic. So while I am helping another person get sober, although they do not know it, they are helping me to stay sober. Through working at Emerald, I have experienced individuals go through treatment without having to endure the thing they fear most in getting sober, the withdrawals and cravings. From there they are able to then get some clarity and with that comes HOPE, something most addicts have lost sight of at some time or another along the way.
I believe what we do at Emerald is life changing. It affords individuals with the disease of addiction a new chance at life with clarity and focus of how to begin to live life sober again.”
