"Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must, but take a step." -- Naeem Callaway
"A little over a year ago, I met with you and you kindly and generously walked me through some of my options for treatments. You then helped me do intake at a facility, arranging the time and date of my stay.
When I came to the MAP office, I was terrified. I was afraid of losing my job and I was afraid of what it meant to go to rehab. Your calm disposition put me at ease. You made me feel respected and listened to. You were so welcoming and understanding. For my recovery, to have you on my side, for you to be one of the first people who helped me, it was exactly what I needed.
Today, I celebrate one year of sobriety.
Thank you so much for your professionalism and your humanity. You helped me get to where I am today."
