Recovery brings the light back to peoples’ lives, creating the way for bright futures- and Lindsey is an amazing example! Building a Recovery community in rural areas has challenges. With a heart for Recovery for her own North Carolina County and the surrounding counties, Lindsey is putting her own Recovery experience to great use. On course to graduate college in 2021 with a degree in human services, Lindsey added a substance abuse counselor certification with plans to use her personal recovery experience to help others.
Knowing the vital need for peer community, especially for rural areas where services are limited, stigma is high and isolation can be deep, Lindsey started a Facebook group- The “Other” Recovered; for people in rural areas to connect, share and offer peer support based on the unique challenges for those in Recovery in rural areas.
If you’re in a rural area and would like to connect with others in Recovery in rural areas, check out Lindsey’s Facebook Group: The Other Recovered FB Group
“I don’t want only myself to succeed- I want us all to succeed, learn and grow together, whether in big ways or small ways. I want to be a part of making a difference, to help break the stigma and instill hope that those who are addicted can recover and become successful. I’ve learned over the years that every experience- even the bad, builds us. Each experience is either a ‘blessin or a lesson’. Addiction taught me some hard learned lessons that continue to teach me every day; and has led me to many blessings through my recovery from it.”
