Recovery improves lives

I am writing to say thank you on behalf of myself and Maine Alliance for Addiction Recovery (MAAR) members who work to make addiction recovery visible in Maine communities. We are so pleased by the exceptional articles in the series written by Meg Haskell to educate readers that “recovery works” and by the Bangor Daily News’ support to run these.

We are getting a great deal of positive feedback from your readers about Meg’s writing which also drew more people for our Recovery Walk & Celebration on Sept. 16 in Augusta. The Web link for this series has been publicized nationally by recovery advocates in Washington, D.C., putting her fine journalism and the Bangor Daily News in the national spotlight too.

Thank you for your efforts to publicize that recovery is working in the lives of so many Maine people. This will encourage those in need of recovery to find help to begin the journey.
