Recovery Stories

Angela G's Story


Hello, my name is Angela Gilgallon and I have been in recovery since October 2007; which means I have not had a drink or used drugs in over 8 years. Since my commitment to recovery I have successfully completed court ordered treatment programs as well as probation. I have also enrolled in Penn State for Psychology with the business option and have recently been accepted into the Honor Roll Society. This past June I passed my state boards and am now a Certified Recovery Specialist. I am currently employed as an assistant counselor at a drug and alcohol outpatient clinic that also treats gambling addiction (Turning Point Alternative Living Solutions). My biggest gift of recovery is my ability to be a mother to my children.
