Krystal’s story: turning her life around

When Krystal arrived in Saint John, she was on leave from her job, feeling deeply alone and emotionally wrung out. A recovering alcoholic, she had not had a drink for seven years.

But she had not yet healed.

She turned to Sophia Recovery Centre, joining a trauma recovery group, participating in counselling and attending meditation and art programs.

“Sophia Recovery Centre has been an amazing gift. I’m now back to work and I’m healing more each day. I have made several new friendships with other women,” Krystal says. “Sophia has helped me completely turn around my life and build a more positive one.”

This life-changing experience is possible thanks to the generosity of United Way supporters. On behalf of Krystal, we thank you.
