The month of September is set aside for celebrating recovery from any addiction with many events all highlighting that recovery is possible. This year the focus is on youth in recovery featuring two young people, Justin Luke Riley, President and CEO of Young People in Recovery, and Stephanie Siete, Public Information Officer at Community Bridges, Inc.
For many of us in long term recovery, it is like a homecoming to see old friends and make new ones. Phoenix is blessed with great recovery opportunities with excellent professionals, a wide array of treatment centers, excellent support through 12 Step Meetings, sponsorship and churches including SCUCC, who are welcoming of all people. Be sure to stop by the Valley Hope Treatment Centers booth. I am the chaplain to the Outpatient Treatment Center of Valley Hope in Tempe, Arizona. I look forward to seeing you there!
Blessings and hope,
Rev. Sandi Britton, M.Ed., M.Div., BCC
