Recovery Stories

Nikki K's Story


I am a person in long term recovery and what that means to me is that I have not found it necessary to use any mild altering substances in 4 years. Because of Recovery I am a better mother, wife, and daughter, I no longer miss moments in my children’s lives or hear them cry because their mother is coming home tonight, my husband is not worrying that I am being unfaithful, my dad is no longer scared for my life, I am an active member in society today, I no longer live with the stigma that I am just a drug addict, I work in the field of addiction and have a new meaning in life, I am living proof that Recovery Works!
