CBHC presented a 2020 Pandemic Hero Award to Marjorie Benson and her team at Friendly Floors. During a year when fundraising was down due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions cancelling all fundraising events, Marjorie and Friendly Floors stepped up to the plate to put on an end-of-year matching funds fundraiser (Friendly Floors matched over $10 in donations!). Thanks to our angels at Friendly Floors, nearly $30,000 was raised for the Fred Lang Foundation, the fundraising arm for CBHC. We are so grateful, thankful, and beyond blessed for their generosity and the community members who donated. Thank you Friendly Floors!!!! #SupportSmallBusiness ... See MoreSee Less

Sober Nation
Brilliantly Resilient with Mary Fran Bontempo

Mary Fran Bontempo is an award-winning author and 2-time TEDx speaker who teaches audiences how to uncover their brilliance and resilience 15 minutes at a time.

Although not in recovery herself, she watched for years as her son David struggled with addiction for years.

She saw the early warning signs, but like many parents, she justified what was happening.

In retrospect, Mary has come to understand how hard it can be to see situations like this for what they really are.

"The two closest companions in crisis are distraction and denial."

You deny the family member's addiction, and then you distract yourself with excuses.

After being admitted to two in-patient treatment centers, David was finally able to get sober.

Mary made it her mission to help the family members of addicts through her writing and speaking engagements.

Her most notable books are Brilliantly Resilient and The 15 Minute Master.

The 15 Minute Master offers a process to help families navigate the challenges of addiction through mindfulness and a series of simple questions.

You can find Mary's books on Amazon.
