In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Wasatch Crest’s Alumni Coordinator, Becky Wheelock, discusses rediscovering self-worth in addiction recovery.
Martin Luther King, Jr. highlighted the dignity of all people, despite their background. When someone is struggling with substance abuse, it can be difficult for them to remember their worth.
When I was in facing addiction, I’d made mistakes, my relationships were broken, and I felt unworthy of redemption. But I was welcomed into treatment by people who did not judge my past. After treatment, I joined recovery groups that also accepted me for who I was.
At Wasatch Crest, we lead with compassion. We are passionate about helping our clients find purposeful, fulfilling lives in recovery. Through mindfulness therapy, recreational therapy, and community, we help individuals rediscover their self-worth.
As Martin Luther King said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” At Wasatch Crest, we will help you find the light inside of you through personalized, attentive care fueled by compassion.
To close, I’d like to remind you that you are worth all the joys that recovery will bring to your life.
