As someone who has worked in the industry for decades, I am proud to be involved with the important work that The Excel Center is doing. My purpose in life is helping others to find recovery; I love showing them that there is a light after the dark and it is possible to live a healthy, accountable, and manageable life.
I am an advocate for spiritual growth through the 12 Steps – one of our mantras is to “accept the things we cannot change, but find the courage to change the things we can”. Through our compassionate program and amazing team, we have helped hundreds of clients change the things they could, and live a life filled with hope, faith, and courage.
In my time working in long term recovery and outpatient programs, I have heard a lot of stories of people who simply had no hope left, and they didn’t think they would ever find happiness in this life. What those people didn’t realize is that there are many others who understand how they feel, and have dedicated their lives to helping them. The strongest, most caring, creative, and compassionate people I’ve ever encountered come from this community. Recovery is about acceptance, forgiveness, and resilience. As a place where judgment of any kind is unacceptable, our community has its arms out for anyone who needs help.
