It has been a journey but M is clean and sober. When she left Destinations, it wasn't easy. She has made this transition on her own and we are quite proud of her. She has realized that her family is her support system and has been there through the thick and thin of it and always will be there for her. She has come to see the light. Destinations provided what she needed to start this recovery Journey.
