If you or a loved one are suffering from addiction, you know the pain and struggle that comes with it. Now, there is someone here locally who can help.
Nurse practitioners, Melissa Maston and Jamie Clay are here to help get you back on the path to a healthy, productive lifestyle. At their facility, the New Beginnings Recovery Clinic, patients work with licensed counselors and receive medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

According to their website, "The ultimate goal of MAT is full recovery, including the ability to live a self-directed life. This treatment approach has been shown to improve patient survival and increase retention in treatment. It has also been shown to decrease illicit opiate use and other criminal activity among people with substance use disorders and increase patients' ability to gain and maintain employment. It has also been shown to improve birth outcomes among pregnant women who have substance use disorders. These medications and therapies can contribute to lowering a person's risk of contracting HIV or hepatitis C by reducing the potential for relapse."

As Americans, we love a good “comeback” story. We celebrate those who stumble and pick themselves up and begin again. A second chance. That chance that is filled with the “Grace” we learned about in Sunday School or through the example of others. It’s something that nearly all of us has relied on at some time in our lives.
Well, we have plenty of “comeback” stories right here in our community and through-out the Ohio Valley. The organization that is making that happen is Jobs & Hope!

This past Wednesday I attended the Workforce Symposium at the Highlands Events Center. The symposium was sponsored by the Marshall County Chamber of Commerce, the Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce, the Regional Economic Development Partnership, West Virginia Economic Development, Project Best and West Virginia Northern Community College; all partners working to strengthen and develop our region.

While all the speakers had so much useful information to share, Jobs & Hope offered a very special message and opportunity, not only for those they support, but for so many area businesses as well. They allow individuals who have stumbled, to begin again and with tremendous support.

Transition Agents Ms. Sara Wood-Shaw (also a member of our Small Business Breakfast Club team) and Ms. Kelly Coffin presented a compelling vision for those committed to their recovery. What this program offers to employers are solid and well-trained workers, determined to make a lasting change in their lives. 

So, if you love great comeback stories (and who doesn’t?) and if you’re an employer challenged in finding trained and eager workers, look no further, Jobs & Hope is where you need to start!
