This is What Keeps Us Going

The patient was walking down the street to buy dope from his dealer and happened to notice people coming inside our site. Instead of purchasing heroin as he planned, he walked in, and our fantastic MA/MR team (Kassandra Ramos and Kendria Willis) started to help him and make him feel comfortable and welcomed.

Since then, our patient has been wholly focused on fighting his opioid addiction, and regaining his life back. Last week, he had oral surgery, and the DDS wrote him a prescription for an opiate painkiller, and our patient refused it. He did not want to slip back to his old life and mess up his recovery despite the pain. We saw our patient today, and while in pain, he is still fully committed to his recovery. He has been singing our praises to others in the community and is advocating for others to seek treatment because of the friendly, caring, compassionate and sincere atmosphere that is being built within the center.

I wanted to share, as it makes me proud of the work our team is doing here, and it is a truly  heartwarming story.
