Celebrating people in all forms of recovery & those who support them.
For this year’s Recovery Month, DreamLife will have a focus on their alumni who are in active recovery. Our goal is to emphasize that the path to recovery is different for everyone, each being their own individual experience. We hope that by sharing these stories and experiences, individuals will be encouraged to do the same.
Addicted to percocet and living in the back closet of his job, Jay’s life was unmanageable. It got to the point that he didn’t want to live this way and he knew that it was either die or get help. When someone recommended, he try DreamLife Recovery, he knew he had to make the right decision.
Favorite Book: The Secret to Success – Eric Thomas
Check Out The Secret to Success
I love this book because Eric Thomas is an inspirational genius. His logic behind success has helped me see that the only thing holding me back from the life that I want and deserve is myself. Whether in my happiness, career or my recovery, my desire to win must be greater than my desire to breathe.
Where is Jay Now?
At first, Emily used cocaine as a party drug, but when she started doing it while sober, she knew she had a problem. She hid her cocaine use from friends and family and continued going to school, which included a military regimen as part of the daily routine.Emily’s best friend told her mom what was happening, and she agreed to get addiction treatment at DreamLife Recovery.
