IMPACT OF HEALTHY LIVES EFFORT

John, 35, came to a Greater Portland social service agency for a six-month program, after a third unsuccessful treatment experience. Due to his dependency on alcohol and opiates, John was estranged from his wife and children and had lost his job.

Having found the right program, he immersed himself in group counseling, 12-step community programming, and community service. He also returned to work. John now resides in supportive transitional housing, where he can check in with counselors and attend events with his children. He is about to celebrate a year of sobriety and now has regular visitation with his children.
