National Recovery Month Sentiments from the Gulf Coast!

Transcribed by Karen Mesa, Behavioral Health Tech, Davis Bradley Center, WestCare GulfCoast – Florida

“My recovery means that I have the choice to make the right decisions in my life today. I started college back in 2015 and now in 2021, I am graduating with my BA. I am 19 years clean and sober today because I know the tools to stay clean today. I will graduate in December with a BA degree in Social Work. Today, I have my support group in my life. I am very grateful to have a job with WestCare where I can help women and men in the Davis Bradley program and show them there is hope and it can be done. It only takes one day at a time.”

My recovery means that I am able to share my experience, strength and hope with everyone I encounter so that I can uplift their spirit!”
