My Story…

Like so many, I have experienced the destruction that the disease of addiction can cause to individuals and their families.  My son has been suffering from substance use disorder for almost a decade. In addition, I have too many friends whose children have lost their battle.  It pains me to see so many people and families turned upside down as a result of this devastation.  The Herren Project has helped me, my family and my son cope with the impact this disease has had on our lives.   I am eternally grateful to each and every member of the Herren Project and to the programs they offer.  The love and support I have received from my group leader, Rebecca Helman and my group family have carried me through some of my darkest days.  As a Herren Project Ambassador, I vow to make a positive contribution by helping others. I will continue to carry the message of recovery by connecting others to this amazing group of people. I am humbled and honored to do this work.605f61203adde.jpg
