" My name is Elisabeth. My clean date is November 3rd 2003. I was so tired of being sick and tired. My whole life has changed dramatically since that day. God has brought me so far in life. I have a passion for people who are suffering as I was; sometimes feeling there is no one to turn to and nowhere to go that understands the difficulties of day to day survival for a recovering addict. My goal is to help any person I can to build a solid foundation and fill their toolbox with every tool needed to succeed on this journey called recovery. Never Alone is my way of providing this. Call or email me with any questions. I would love to talk to you!!"
