While sunny skies and temperatures in the high seventies prevailed outside Phoenix House Citra Center on Saturday, December 14, inside it was a winter wonderland as alumni of the program, their families and friends, and Phoenix House staff joined in a Celebration of Recovery.
More than 35 guests joined the fourteen alumni for a day of festivities honoring their achievements. A video presentation set to Keith Urban’s song “You’re Not Alone Tonight” helped to emphasize the fact that no one there was alone on the journey to recovery, but that all are members of the Phoenix House family, with a strong and skilled network of recovery support professionals ready to help at any time.
After the presentation of awards, everyone sat down to an old fashioned “home for the holidays” feast, complete with turkey, ham, and all the appropriate trimmings. And when the celebration was over, the alums knew they had the best holiday gift of all: a new, healthy life in recovery.
