A Gift of Gratitude

Laura in Screening and Assessment was surprised by a visit from a former resident who was celebrating his one-year sobriety date. When his girlfriend asked him what he wanted to do on this very special day, he replied, “I want to take flowers to Laura for putting me into treatment.” He was feeling very blessed and expressed his gratitude by bringing flowers to say, “Thank you.” Exactly one year ago, Laura screened the participant seeking treatment who was motivated to start his journey of recovery. After admission into treatment, the program further engaged him, and his testimony is one that he shares with as many people who would hear him. He was excited about his new-found journey and proudly communicated his success and progress which included a home, a job, family, and his recovery! Stories like this one keep us going and affirm that we are doing the work our hearts lead us to do.
