Why did you choose to work at True Recovery?
“I get to give back every day by being helpful in the clients lives. I really believe that I owe them what someone once gave me, which is another chance to try and have a meaningful and successful life. A few years ago someone gave me the tools to create a better life for myself and now I get to show so many people, with the same issues I had, how to turn their lives around, and not only to become successful but to become healthier emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I get to help people every day completely re-create their lives, and there is nothing more rewarding then that.”
