Alex’s Recovery Story

Thank you to Alex for writing and sharing his recovery story with us.  He’s shown us that recovery is possible no matter the obstacles – not even a worldwide pandemic.   We hope you find his story inspiring and it gives you the confidence to get in touch with us to see how we may be able to help you.  When the pain of using becomes greater than the pain of not using, it’s time to get help. We can’t make that call for you, but we can help you every step of the way after that.
