To those of you on the Recovery Journey: September is a time to reflect on those who we have lost in the recovery efforts, those who have won and are living in Recovery, and those who are presently fighting the battle of addiction. For those of you who are stable in Recovery, we are proud of all you have done to get to this point. I hope you are able to give back and help others along. For those of you who are still battling, I am cheering for you, your community is cheering for you, and please know that YOU matter! These times are hard, but you don’t have to do this alone. There is hope. Please reach out to CBHC and let us know how we can help. – Vickie Scanlon, CBHC CEO
