“After moving into a group home, within weeks my symptoms left. As part of my treatment plan, I had to attend CWC as a day participant. I was welcomed with open arms. Being part of CWC changed my life. Today, I am a Peer Recovery Specialist, like those who helped me. I am honored. I believe peer support is vital to giving a voice to those without one. CWC gives a voice to those without one.”
