“I just want to start by saying how incredibly grateful I am for this program. It was a very difficult time in my life when I was hospitalized in early 2018 and was introduced to Natalie. I had been introduced to recovery two years prior while in treatment out of state but made no new connections upon returning home. I knew my best route was to get back involved in 12 step fellowships but didn’t know where to start. Natalie’s guidance helped me find the best fit and I’ve been involved in NA ever since. I’ve gained so much from her continuing support; new friends that I consider family, I am now able to be a mother to my daughter and I’ve been able to hold down a consistent job. There’s no doubt in my mind that if this program wasn’t available to me that I would not have reached the place in my life that I have. Thank you to Natalie and everyone at Liberty Resources for helping me find my path!” ---Client, March 2019

The Peer Advocate, who is knowledgeable about the alcohol and substance abuse treatment system, will work with local hospital Emergency Department personnel and in other settings to help patients establish connections to addiction treatment after an opioid overdose reversal, after discharge from another addiction-related ED visit, or as needed in other settings. This connection to treatment after an opioid overdose reversal is critical to a person’s start on the path to recovery, and can help prevent relapse and a potential overdose reoccurrence.
