Happy 4th of July!

Independence has many meanings. As we celebrate this birthday of our county, may we equally celebrate recovery from the disease of addiction. May we honor the right of all captured by this disease to hope, dignity and a productive life!

Enjoy the day and mark your calendars for August 31st. Second annual Howard County International Overdose Awareness Day - A day of celebrating those in recovery while remembering those now gone to substance use disorder.

We have this day of celebration because the cause of liberty was and remains worthy. So is the value of all life in hope through recovery.

Yesterday we helped two young men move into recovery houses. Both are 21...young. "George" was couch surfing after completing a treatment program. "Joe" was sleeping at a meeting location during the day when not looking for a job. He recently completed detox but as someone who grew up in foster care, he has no family. So from midnight to 6 am he sought shelter in public places.

Last night each had a safe place to sleep; a place among others also on the recovery train. Two young men who have established relationships with sponsors, have daily meeting locations and a plan in play...this makes the world a better place.

Together we can make a difference!

The goal of access is to save lives. During my son's years of struggle my motto was simple: Where there is life there is hope.

Check it out and then take action if you even suspect it could save someone in need.
