Celebrating Milestones at The Mission

This past week at The Mission we celebrated the achievements of 47 men who have reached important milestones in their road to recovery from addiction.

For Bill, it was recognition for 3 consecutive months of daily attendance at our drop in Day Program – something that seemed unattainable at this time last year and is such an important first step towards changing his life.

For Warren, it was completing 30 days in our Stabilization Program, staying sober and gaining the strength he needed to commit to long term addiction treatment. It was the first time in many long years that Warren had achieved sobriety for any stretch of time and now he’s ready for the next step.

For Pierre, it was finishing five months of intensive residential treatment at our LifeHouse facility, and moving back into the community – yet another step towards regaining a full and productive life.

For these three, and all of the others being recognized and celebrated yesterday, it was a time to pause with pride and celebrate the hard work they’ve done on their recovery journey, and look ahead to a future filled with hope.

Congratulations to all!
