With a new spring comes new opportunities here at iRecover. The participants that we help on a daily basis, always push us to do our best to show them that sobriety can be attained and that they are not alone in their daily struggles with addiction, both internally and externally. Every day we get closer to summer, being outside, camping, the end of school, and with that a temptation to “let loose” and for some to numb ourselves through unhealthy vices. I see it as an opportunity to really show one another that we can go out, be social, and not let ourselves become the people that we don’t want to be. Instead to be real and feel everything, to create friendships and families rather than destroy them. Live life to the fullest and embrace the new spring with renewed vitality and vigor. This is the message we pass on to our participants to guide their outlook and approach to recovery.
