Checking In With PRC Alum Jennifer Wright
When Jennifer Wright arrived at the Pasadena Recovery Center on February 13th she felt her “life was ruined”. After 11 years of alcoholism, three DUI’s (one car crash) and a bevy of worried (and terrified) friends and family, Jennifer’s life had hit rock bottom.
A bit more than six months later, however, Jennifer uses words like “great,” “wonderful,” and “fantastic” to describe her state of mind as she leaves PRC for a sober living facility where she plans to stay for, at least, the next half year.
Jennifer credits a long list of PRC staff – “Shelly was great, Karen was great, Roz and Rhonda were great” – with helping her turn her life around. But she holds a special place for Liz (program assistant Elizabeth Macias):
“She was the person who helped me first and foremost. I had so many great talks with her.”
Teary-eyed PRC program assistant, Roz Alvarez-Villar, expressed what many staffers felt watching Jennifer drive away:
“Seeing such an amazing turnaround, especially as a recovering addict myself, is my reward. That’s why I love my job.”
We can’t help but cheer for Jennifer and believe her when she says, “I’m ready to go. I want this more than anything in my life.”
