Brittany* is sixteen and recently celebrated ten months of sobriety!”
Your gift to United Way made her recovery possible.
A year ago, Brittany was placed in an inpatient program outside of our area where she was treated for heroin addiction. After completing that program and returning to her home in the Wausau area, she immediately began intensive follow up treatment in the CHOICES program at Peaceful Solutions Counseling. There she participated in group therapy, individual therapy, and eventually the teen aftercare program. Today, she continues with individual therapy but is on the road to recovery.
She is on track to complete high school and wants to become a substance abuse counselor to help others who have fallen into the dangerous trap of addiction. Your investment in United Way makes it possible for teens like Brittany to get their lives back on track. Thank you for making a difference.
