TRUE RECOVERY is the healing of the human spirit. It is the recognition that we not only have the right to live, but the right to be happy. It is the ability to have a successful work life and satisfying relationships with family members and other loved ones. TRUE RECOVERY means being able to experience all the joy of life without dread or a fear that it will end, and that it’s too good to be true. – Marilyn J. White, Founder & Executive Director.
