Working in the field of substance use disorder for over 15 years, Lori has mentored and cared for thousands on their recovery journey. When asked what this sobriety anniversary meant to her, she shared her thoughts.
33 years – How does that sound, feel to you? Did any of the Facebook comments catch you off guard or bring a smile to your face?
There has been a lot of “Life” in those 33 years. Immense joy and “life on life’s terms” that I was able to move through with recovery as my foundation. I would truly not be in this place if my father did not share his love of recovery and walk with me through my journey. All of the facebook comments caught me off guard and brought a smile to my face. All of them…truly grateful for each and every one.
What advice would you share with a guest at Herren Wellness who is just starting on their recovery journey?
It is important to remember that your journey to recovery is not a straight line. Hang on, be grateful, be proud of your recovery and share it with others. Take time to embrace and learn the power of recovery. One day turns into years.
Why is Herren Wellness different from other treatment programs? What makes Herren Wellness so special?
At Herren Wellness we embrace all aspects of recovery and approach healing with a holistic and self-discovery approach. We treat the whole person and develop individual recovery plans that are unique to each guest and their journey. The team, starting with Chris and Heather Herren, openly share their recovery with everyone who steps onto our campus and understands the struggle as an individual seeking help and as a family member in the process of finding treatment for a loved one. We are a family, and the connection continues when guests leave to restart their lives in recovery.
