“A story of HOPE for this addict and hopefully others… I am 27 and have struggled with the disease of addiction for nearly 10 years and mental illness since childhood. I have no idea how I am still alive, but am beyond grateful that I am. I have been in and out of psych hospitals, rehabs, outpatient programs, and then ended up in jail. I have attempted to give up in the past, but was never successful. Today, I am proud to say that I have 198 days clean and my family and friends are very much apart of my life now. It can and does get better, as long as you keep trying!!”

– Lauren Ashley Josephsen

“I think it’s amazing what you are doing for the community. My name is Dorothie and I am a grateful recovering addict/alcoholic with almost 5 years of sobriety and very active in my AA community. My Aunt is Sheryle Santiago, mother of Erik Santiago, who passed away on Jan. 28th, 2013 from this terrible disease. I just wanted to send a message of thanks for all your organization does for so many and to reach my hand and voice out to you that if you ever needed a speaker, volunteer, etc. for anything, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Many blessings to you!”
