One of the famous sayings used by Twelve Step groups is that,
you have to give it away in order to keep it.
What this is referring to is
the idea that service in recovery can help
the giver as much as the receiver.

This giving should not be done
in the hope of a reward or praise.

Instead the individual does it
because they know that it is helping to keep
them clean and sober too.

Numerous studies have provided evidence that
helping others in recovery provides great benefit to
the helper.

Service in recovery refers to
work carried out for no financial reward or compensation.
This may involve directly helping somebody else, or
indirectly helping them by providing services.

Let’s talk about our experience, strength, and hope as it relates to Service Work.

Let’s go to you first Chrissy
