Another Letter of Sobreity

Our program director received this email from a past patient last week...
"Dear Sherry:
It's been a little over a year since I got sober with you and your team, after 30 years of heavy drinking.  I have stayed sober with the tools I was given.  I know that you know, as well as any "normie" can, that these stories don't always have a happy ending, so I just wanted to let you know that I am happy, one day at a time.  All those "promises" are coming true, just as . . . well, as promised.  Each day is an adventure as my clarity broadens.
So once again, thank you, and everyone on your team, for helping me out of that morass of shame, for the many, many things I received at HVRC (including The Gift of Addiction).  And, by the way, you may recall me telling you that I had been at another treatment center 2 years before, and felt driven out after 12 days.  People who tour that program have no idea how much better rehab can be at a caring place like HVRC.  You said, "You are just where you are supposed to be."  So true.
Sincerely,
Jim H"
