Review for Turn Your Life Around (TYLA) Inc, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have only been interning at TYLA for a short time, however during my weeks here I have seen their positive impact. I have had the pleasure of leading some of the recovery group meetings hosted by TYLA as well as participating in the peer to peer counseling. In doing this I have been able to teach people how to search for jobs, enroll in programs to recieve assistance in decreasing overwhelming financial debt, and most importantly achieve a lifestyle of sobriety they had thought to be impossible. TYLA has played, and continues to play, a crucial role in bettering the lives of Tucson's community. I feel lucky to be a part of such a wonderful program.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My experiences with the clients. I have had the pleasure of meeting with clients one on one and hearing their stories.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide them with the tools to put their name out there for those who could be helped by their range of services and programs. Tucson has so many residents suffering with drug and alcohol addiction. Its unfortuante TYLA does not have the monetary resources to reach out to those who are still in need.

Role:  Volunteer & I facilitate group recovery meetings and participate in peer to peer counseling.
