Through the stressful and uncertain times that we are living in, now more than ever we must shine the spotlight on the good that we find around us. The men at the Doorway to Recovery, Palmer House, took the time to show their support for medical staff and first responders, by beautifully painting the landmark rock in front of the men’s home.
The men, and women, at D.T.R. are living examples that during trying times, recovery works. While things like AA, NA, Celebrate Recovery; therapy and counseling; church and religious services; and even yoga and guided meditation may have moved to the online realm, the principle of one addict or one alcoholic helping another never changes. Sober living provides accountability.
To all the healthcare workers and first responders, thank you for your service. For everyone else, wash your hands and practice social distancing to the best of your ability. Remember this lesson from recovery, that together we can do anything we set our minds to. God bless you and stay strong.
