Beyond Addiction: The Success Stories of Our Recovery Ambassadors

We asked our alumni to share their recovery stories and empower others to seek treatment for addiction and mental health.

Admitting you have an alcohol addiction can be difficult.
How did our alumni know they needed help?

Realizing the need for help is the first step to overcoming addiction.
Our recovery ambassadors decided to embark on their own healing journeys. It’s time to start yours.

“I knew I wanted treatment when I realized how sick I kept getting and ruining my family.”

“I knew I wanted treatment when I realized how sick I kept getting and ruining my family.”

“My mother had just passed and my drinking and depression became uncontrollable. Between the insomnia and hand tremors, I knew I needed help.”

Recovery Can Feel Impossible. Here is what our Recovery Ambassadors Want to Tell You.

In the face of challenges, our alumni speak to future patients, offering hope and inspiration to those struggling on their own recovery journey.

“I’d say that there is hope for a better life, that there is hope to overcome all obstacles and to know that you are not alone”

-Jospeh McDermott, Recovery Ambassador TRV Cherry Hill

“I’d share my experience and guide them to the right path of recovery. It’s a beautiful experience.”

-Isaiah Richardson, Recovery Ambassador TRV Cherry Hill

“I would let them know they are not alone with their addictions and even though recovery can be tough, things will get better.”

-Justin Walker, Recovery Ambassador TRV Cherry Hill

Tools for Recovery

Residential and boarding house [PHP] were the most helpful. Residential gave me knowledge and routine while boarding prepared me for when I left.

A Full Continuum of Care

“This was the closest facility with the highest ratings and had more programs to offer than regular IP [inpatient rehab] or OP [outpatient rehab]. That’s why I chose The Recovery Village.”
