My name is Brooks and I have been in recovery for 8 months. This was after 27 years of using drugs and alcohol as my solution. I’m most proud that I have been able to maintain physical sobriety for four months. On top of this, I have also completed my recovery coach training and have started to help others in their recovery. One of my low points was detoxing in the ER after falling into a creek bed and being seriously injured. Another low point was being evicted from my home because of my alcohol use. However, it’s not like that today. Today, I help others maintain or achieve sobriety. I volunteer every week at the Springs Recovery Connection and am working my way to becoming a certified recovery coach.
