As an organization, Together We Can believes strongly in the importance of educating the family about the disease of addiction and in helping them understand how to support their loved one throughout the recovery process. Betty has been facilitating the family support program for many years and finds the work very fulfilling.
She has been in recovery for over 29 years and worked in the field for 27. Betty’s education and training have led her to a deeper understanding of addiction and recovery. She shares her knowledge in the hopes of rebuilding family relationships.
Her life outside of work revolves around recovery. She still attends 12 step meetings, is honest about how she is doing, does step work, helps others and practices the recovery principles to the best of her ability. Betty describes her life as being 95% happy, joyous and free. An amazing gift of recovery.
