Tiffany Tettenhorst: Local woman thanks newspaper for recovery stories

Saturday, October 21, 2017

Dear Editor:

I want to say thank you for publishing the stories about people in recovery.

I work with people who are struggling with addiction or in recovery from addiction. I was a drug addict for 26 years of my life. On Sept. 25, I was four years clean. So, it makes me happy to see stories about people who have or are trying to overcome addiction.

It would be great if the paper would share stories like that more often, because people don't realize how hard it is to overcome addiction, and those people deserve to have a pat on the back for it and to be able to tell their stories. Thank you again.
