“When I got sober in 2012, I had limited resources and nowhere to live, but I was given an opportunity due to the graciousness of a sober living owner. Crying in his office, coming off of a relapse, I told him how grateful I was for the chance to get my life back on track. He told me I was the one providing him with the opportunity to be of service. Since that moment, my life has shifted to the mentality that recovery is more about helping others and less about myself. read more.
