Too often, negative behaviors and substance use can derail those efforts. That’s why today and all next week we are connecting you to help and hope, so that you can heal.
Deidra James, The P.E.E.R Center Assistant Director
Look up the word recovery in the dictionary, and you’ll see a simple explanation: a return to a normal state of health, mind, or strength. But if you or a loved one has ever been through trauma or addiction, you know that the path to recovery is anything but simple. The P.E.E.R Center explains how they help people in recovery heal.

Oyauma Garrison, MBA, CPCU, Maryhaven President & CEO
The ways in which a substance use or behavioral disorder can disrupt a person’s life are limitless, and none for the better. It’s why the road to recovery isn’t just about confronting the addiction, but also restoring their lives. That is the motto of Maryhaven, a well known name in addiction recovery.
Kyle Harden, House of Hope Outreach Director
