America is drinking its way through the coronavirus crisis
Right now a lot of us are uncertain about what to do, what to buy, and how to cope.
Grocery stores are selling out of food and toilet paper. Alcohol is also selling fast with many stocking up on beer, liquor, and wine during this pandemic. While it's been a boost for some businesses it's also a health concern for some. With most of us not going into the workplace or being able to see family and friends it's a stressful time and people are turning to a variety of coping strategies, one of them is alcohol.
Our Phones are Ringing.

Recovery Hero: Charlene Best
I am Charlene Best and I have been in sustained recovery since 10-17-2013. I am really proud to say that I am free and clear from owing money or having compliance requirements to El Paso County! I have learned how to live and parent drug and alcohol free. I am learning how to problem solve and celebrate with friends, family, colleagues and my husband without altering my state of mind, but by walking through the uncomfortableness with each other. Some might say it is relationship building. My low point was believing that my children were better off without me, even if that meant foster care because I had such low esteem. First and foremost in sustaining my own wellness and wellbeing, my experience gives me the opportunity to share my recovery in our community. As a Recovery Coach at SRC, I give back by sharing my testimony with others to lend a hand of emotional and psychological support through reflective listening and I offer assistance with navigating our community's wellness resources.

Thank you Charlene!
