My name is Crystal “Koda” and I’ve been in recovery for 21 months. My accomplishments while in recovery have been:
Graduating VTC (Veterans Trauma Court), completing my 12-step program and probation by completing community service, EMDR, neuro, and all required classes. I have completed the Peer Recovery Coach Academy and required courses to become a coach. I also had my story used in a national outreach conference for “Homeless and drug addicted women veterans” in Nashville TN.

I am currently a manager at Next Chapter Sober Living, and recently started working at Springs Recovery Connection as a Peer Recovery Coach with the Justice Department. Prior to recovery, my lowest point was when I was living in my car with my 2 puppies and committing crimes to support my habit.

Today I am of service and give back to the community by doing outreach and assisting other vets through the process in VTC. As a coach for SRC, I get to visit inmates at CJC, coaching them through recovery and guiding them from start to finish in specialty courts. I help guide them on the right path in life, by giving them the resources they need to help them maintain their sobriety. I also sponsor in the 12-step program of A.A and N.A assisting women to change their lives for the better.
