AS IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW –
Nov. 15, 2022 – I’ve seen people transform their lives. It’s what keeps me going. It’s amazing the changes that people can make should they allow themselves to follow suggestions, overcome fears, risk new things and trust the process. I’ve seen people who were feeling suicidal and hopeless who, today, have a family and are helping other people. It’s amazing. But there are a lot of people that end up not getting that recovery—they might struggle to engage, or relapse. The biggest challenge of my job is feeling powerless, and not being able to help someone. When I find out that someone has passed away because of a drugs or alcohol-related incident, it is very difficult to process and overcome.
