I was able to talk about how I continue to grow in sobriety, and that I work the steps and practice the principles of recovery on a daily basis.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
Who better to speak to recovering addicts than someone who has experienced addiction firsthand? Executive Director of Benchmark Recovery’s Women’s Program, Tracie Kitchen, was honored to attend Georgetown’s CA Annual Birthday Bash event.
At Benchmark Recovery Center, staff members are all too familiar with the ups and downs of the recovery process. But this is also a part of what lends authenticity and experience to what they do on a daily basis as well as what helps residents feel comfortable opening up about their own experiences with drug and alcohol recovery. It’s all a part of the healing process and taking that next step on the journey towards permanent sobriety.
Kitchen’s Most Important Title? Role Model
Tracie Kitchen is no different. A living example of what it means to follow the steps to sobriety, Kitchen is now revered as a role model for residents, having risen up the ranks at BRC, from being a Resident Care Associate to being Program Director to her current position as BRC’s Executive Director of the entire women’s program.
And this past weekend, she delivered her message of hope to current and former addicts:
“I was able to talk about how I continue to grow in sobriety, and that I work the steps and practice the principles of recovery on a daily basis.”
More than 100 people were in attendance at the CA Birthday Bash, where festivities included a raffle, sobriety countdown and an impressive potluck. The fellowship of CA is known for its inclusiveness, reaching out to those who have struggled with all mind-altering substances and Georgetown’s theme of “Freedom in the Solution” is indicative of this message.
