NINE YEARS CLEAN!

My name is Jeff. This year I turned 29 and I'm blessed to celebrate nine years free off Meth!!! I’m so glad my grandma lived to see the drastic change I made into becoming the man I am today. I have a fantastic career, I’m contemplating BUYING my first house, and I couldn’t be happier with the direction my life is headed! TO ANYONE STRUGGLING WITH ADDICTION, KNOW THAT YOU CAN BEAT IT!!!

Invitation

TEACHER OF THE YEAR 2019

 

Hello, my name is Jessica. I'm a woman in recovery. For years, I struggled to balance my professional life with my addiction to alcohol. To cope with the guilt, I worked diligently to be the best teacher, the best employee, and the best at everything. I spent years at happy hours counting others' drinks so I could pretend to drink like a "normal" person while aching to go home to isolate and imbibe. That painful lifestyle is behind me.

 

Today, I stand proud of who I am and embrace all parts of me. My recovery is no longer a secret. Instead, it is my story to share.

Is Online Therapy a Game Changer for Rural America?

Online therapy is a potential game changer for millions of Americans who once lacked access to a therapist for myriad reasons: They had no transportation, lived far from the nearest therapist, couldn’t get permission to leave a job, or struggled with child care. “People who live in rural areas, were driving two to four hours roundtrip for a one-hour session,” reports Jonathan Abramowitz, a clinical psychologist at the University of North Carolina and an expert on obsessive-compulsive disorder. “There were these therapy deserts prior to the pandemic, you don’t have that anymore," says Abramowitz. Learn more about online therapy
