This week's Recovery Hero is Joey Johnson. Joey is an integral part of the team at SRC. He also chairs our All Recovery meeting on Tuesday nights. He is a great example of a person who walks the walk. Thanks for all you do Joey!
My name is Joey Johnson and I have been in recovery since around September of 2014, however my sober date is 10/1/2016.
Before entering recovery I had dropped out of college and was headed on a one way track to jail, death, or institutions.
I would say my biggest accomplishment since being in recovery was returning to school and receiving my bachelors degree in general communications. In addition to that, making it through life’s challenges (day by day) without needing to drink or drug has been an accomplishment as well.
