Recovery Is Available Now

”A community thirty miles away has fifteen fellows of Alcoholics Anonymous. Being a large place, we think that someday its fellowship will number many hundreds. But Life among alcoholics anonymous is more than attending gatherings and visiting hospitals, cleaning up scrapes, helping to settle family differences, explaining the disinherited son to his irate parents, lending money and securing jobs for each other, when justified -these are everyday occurrences. No one is discredited or has sunk too low to be welcomed cordially.” - pg. 161 from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous

There exists among us a fellowship of men, and young people that share their experience strength and hope. There is a joy emanating from us because we are aware of how blessed we are to have been able to receive detox and get sober. When we first get sober many of us had very little hope left. We might have thought we had exhausted our chances at recovering but we were pleasantly surprised to find that through going through Above It All Treatment, AA, or addiction rehabilitation that we all had a chance at happiness and getting sober. If you are struggling there is still hope for you all you need to do is reach out, have faith, and have a desire to change the way you are living. The fact is that through sobriety you never have to feel this way or go through anything alone again. We have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body and we are here to help show you how you can recover too.
