Thanks for caring - and for sharing
Overcoming an addiction can be a tough, ongoing battle, according to those who are winning the fight. It's probably not easy for a recovering addict to share the story of developing a habit, the pain and loss that followed, and the challenges to reversing course.
Yet, seven people recovering from addiction described their struggles and the how they overcame them Wednesday night in Tiffin. We tip our cap to them for being willing to share their tales.
Hats off, of course, to the professionals who helped them get on a better path.
We also want to commend the students from Heidelberg and Tiffin universities who are training for careers that would put them in position to assist individuals in similar situations. Hopefully, the discussion Wednesday evening will encourage the students as they prepare to become the next generation to offer help to those struggling with addiction.
