STEPS at Liberty Center News
Many were in attendance at the Mental Health & Recovery Board of Wayne & Holmes Counties Annual Dinner held Thursday, September 18, 2014. Dr. Nicole Labor was presented with the prestigious "Shining Light Award" honoring her service to our community to treat addiction and educate the public about addiction disease. Many staff members, trustees and guests attended the dinner. The evening was capped off with an enlightening and entertaining presentation "Understanding Addiction and the Brain: Squirrel Logic" by Dr. Brad Lander, PhD, LICDC.

Liberty Center Connections Benefits from Project Linus!

Project Linus has donated 900 blankets locally in the last year and over 2 million blankets donated since 1995. The blankets are for children housed in Julia's Place, our domestic violence shelter and for children housed in Beacon House or Noble House our residential, addiction treatment centers.

Recovery is possible...
"My story started at 17 years old. At that time I had never imagined myself in AA or having a problem with drugs and alcohol. It was an occasional solution to the huge hole inside of me that I was trying to fill. It seemed to be the only temporary fix that I could find. The progression of my disease got worse and I could not stop. I tried to do it on my own and I couldn’t. I took my son to counseling, told his counselor I had a problem, and that I needed help. He referred me to STEPS and that is where my journey began. Through STEPS I got a counselor who is great and she helped me so much. I also attended different classes [groups] to learn to deal with situations in everyday life. STEPS directed me to AA where I have worked the 12 steps, got a sponsor, and now sponsor others. I have a year sober as of November 19. I give back to STEPS and AA every chance I get. I can’t give enough. Thanks to STEPS for helping me get my life back. I am so grateful today for the person I have become. All my thanks go to STEPS!"
