September is National Drug and Alcohol Recovery Month. In keeping with that spirit, Riverside Regional Jail has supported the Therapeutic Communities in their month long daily celebration.
The TCs have hosted 30 speakers in long-term recovery, most from the anonymous peer support groups. They came in to share their experience, strength and hope with our peers – telling us what it was like, what happened and what it’s like now for them.
Most of our guest speakers are currently working in the field of substance use disorder and/or human services. Nearly a third are former RRJ TC members!
Talk about cause for celebration! We do recover!
