Overcoming addition, past abuse, homelessness, and health issues can feel overwhelming and daunting. However, with supportive programs offering education, resources and skills building tailored to each individual circumstance, lives change – people work successfully, volunteer, support others in their recovery, maintain sobriety and feel empowered and determined.

SUCCESS STORY

SAM’S RECOVERY JOURNEY

Sam battled drug and alcohol addiction.  His family and neighbors called the police multiple times in one month. Sam made the decision to seek inpatient treatment.  After completing the program, Sam began working with a Goodwill Community Support Worker to help him transition back into society and help support him in his recovery journey. Instead of going back to the environment that he left and risk relapse, Sam’s community support worker was able find him a different apartment and give him the fresh start he needed.  Today, Sam has maintained sobriety for the past six months and is working on rebuilding his children’s trust.
