I stop by the facility at least twice a month to share the joys of good living with the new residents. Although I worked at Cenikor from 2011 through 2013, I never thought of it as a job. It was an honor to be able to touch lives and since I am also a graduate of the program, many of the residents can identify with my story and believe that they can achieve what I have now. It's not so much the material gains Cenikor allowed me to achieve, but the inner peace and confidence I have, because of learning a solid way of living. My wife, who has never needed recovery looked at me the other day because of the positive way I reacted to a potentially bad situation and said, "That place really changed you. Seems like even someone without addiction issues could use this type of change." I smiled and let her know that Cenikor is about more than simple recovery. You don't just recover your life, family, esteem... you gain things you never had.
