I begin my testimony with gratitude and humility. I am forever thankful to RPP for the opportunity to save my career to which I am so committed and for providing the tools which have enriched my life.
During the past 5 years as a participant in the program, I have grown both professionally and personally beyond measure. As I settled into monitoring and regular attendance in A.A. and Caduceus meetings, I began to evolve in strength, faith and humility. I began to move beyond my fears with peace and serenity. Accountability was essential in the early stages and paramount to a successful program. By immersing fully into the philosophy of addiction I gained acceptance and a deeper understanding of the relentless, patient “ grip” addiction holds on a human spirit.
I learned to surrender and accept personal responsibility for the daily work that is required for long-term recovery. The “steps”, the “promises”, the “traditions” and the fellowship keep us focused and aware.
I have made lasting and forever-binding friendships with members of our Caduceus group as we share and support each other through our successes, challenges, frustrations, life events, sadness and joys.
I am grateful to be of service to fellows new to the program as a sponsor and a friend.
I am forever thankful to RPP and the outstanding team of professionals. I have had the privilege of working with Julie, Susan and Jessica as my case managers with excellent support from Tia Cooper who is now the Program Director.
I am grateful, I am thankful and I am delighted to be the person I am today!
