Recovery Month Continues at START

 

This September, START is celebrating National Recovery Month by highlighting some of the outstanding patient success stories and dedicated counselors in our programs! Be sure to check in on our social media for regular updates, but for now, enjoy Isaac’s story, written by the one of the counselors who has helped guide him in his recovery:

The Third Horizon clinic acknowledges the accomplishment of one of our phenomenal patients, Isaac, who successfully completed his Associate’s Degree this summer at the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC). Despite the challenges of a substance use disorder, Isaac, with the support of his primary counselor, Mr. Kirby, the vocational counselor, Ms. Robinson, and the rest of Third Horizon’s team, persevered and remained focused on his recovery. Isaac stated that he did not use his substance use disorder as an excuse for not achieving his educational goals. Isaac is now looking forward to achieving his next goal of getting a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing.

Congratulations, Isaac! The Third Horizon clinic and START Treatment & Recovery Centers are very proud of you!
