A client sent a text message today to thank me for accepting him into the program two years ago.
While I always appreciate an attaboy from successful clients, the truth is that this client took advantage of TLC and our program from the day he entered the door. Not in a negative way - but in the most positive way possible.
He went to all his meetings, worked hard at whatever he was assigned to, found a sponsor, and went to work. Today he has his own apartment and enjoys a circle of friends. He’s an example of how we like to see our mission affect clients.
And the reality is that what this client is living is open to every addict who crosses our threshold. They simply have to be tired of the pain they’ve lived with for so long.
