“After beginning my journey, I was surprised to feel my senses waking up. I was almost certain they’d given up on me – and, suddenly, I was actually experiencing my world. I could relate to and communicate with my environment and those in it, as if I were “Home”, no matter where I was…Now I feel free to be my Self..and for the first time, I know who I am…” ~ Casey

“The nature of recovery is not always the notion that a person focus on what they need to ‘stop doing’ as much as it is that they ‘start being’ true and honest with themselves and that they live through their authentic self”, Paul Stiles Randak.
