In the spirit of National Recovery Month, RecoveryView is proud to feature our annual Recovery Edition! We are happy to announce, we will be releasing future editions based on themes in the spirit of recovery!
I’d like to dedicate this special edition to two beautiful men we lost this week. Tony Marquez a special friend of mine and wonderful human being. Tony worked at Hope by the Sea among other treatment centers through the years. Tony was a marketer extraordinaire! Christopher Kennedy Lawford, author and recovery advocate. Christopher was passionate about recovery and families suffering from addiction. Both of these men are angels guiding us all to continue with their work and legacy.
We would like to thank our edition sponsor, Satori Center for Wellbeing, which is now open in California and accepting new clients. Satori offers unique services to help integrate and align the physical body with your true spiritual self.
