Review for Options Recovery Services, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have been volunteering for Options Recovery for about three and a half years. In those years I have learned a tremendous amount about drug and alcohol treatment and recovery. I have seen some miraculous recoveries over the years that have been inspirations to me. Options has a graduation every three months when the people graduating get to tell their stories to their families and friends. It is always a very emotional occasion. Some of the graduates had been estranged from their families for many years. t is wonderful seeing them a whole family again.

I write proposals, maintain the donor data base and organize fund raising events and appeals.
