Mission Moment: Overcoming Addiction

April 19, 2024

Sometimes all it takes to turn a life around is for one person to see your potential.

That’s the case for Jerry*, a former client at Washington County Jail.

Jerry overcame addiction through our Jail Program. With the help of our embedded staff, Jerry was able to look more deeply at the underlying reasons for his dependence and make positive changes to his lifestyle. Through evidence-based therapy including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Enhanced Illness Management and Recover (EIMR), Jerry learned coping strategies and changed his belief system for the better. As a result, his whole life looks totally different.

“Years ago, the clinicians in the Washington County Jail helped me start my recovery journey. I’ve now been sober for almost 12 years, and I have so much gratitude to the clinicians for meeting me where I was at back then. I’m now married, coach at my children’s school, am active in my church, and I have a successful career. Oftentimes I suppose the clinicians see people at their worst and struggling, but they don’t get to see the fruits of their labor when they are at their best. Thank you for helping me be my best.”
