Success Stories

"I am a recovering drug addict of over a decade of use. I figured I would never be able to get a decent job ever again. I now work for the state as a peer support specialist for the opioid epidemic. This is so important, to not have to feel ashamed for becoming a person of circumstance. When the workplace is somewhere you can feel safe to be you, feel trusted, and feel self-worth again, it makes recovery feel that much easier to obtain."
