The following is a letter from a service recipient to the staff and volunteers at The Council’s Southern Bucks Recovery Community Center.

The Council of Southeast Pennsylvania
Bristol PA Office
Just a note of thanks. I started using the services here (Southern Bucks Recovery Community Center) over a year ago. When I got sober again I quite literally only had the clothes on my back, little to no prospects and very little hope I could ever get back on my feet. Through AA, some friends that were sober and the staff and services here, I find myself in a position that I really doubted I could get back to. While by no means am I where I was before things got bad with my addiction, if you would have told me I’d be as far along as I am I would have taken the deal and thought I was stealing from you.
The services offered at The Council of Southeast Pennsylvania and the staff and volunteers were a godsend. Their dedication to helping people recover and always positive approach was more help than I typically admit to. Karen, Miguel and Annika in particular were hugely helpful and always encouraging along with the volunteers at the Bristol location. I was so taken by the satff and volunteers dedication that I even volunteered and found the experience very rewarding and hopefully I’ve helped someone in some small way to get back on their feet or get another day clean and sober.
Again, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the staff and volunteers here. I’m starting a position that will not allow me to spend much time here to volunteer but, again, that is kind of the point of what you do here. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I don’t doubt for a moment that the only reason I have been given the opportunity that I have is because of the staff, volunteers and the services offered here.
