Success in York County

Maggie struggled with addiction for many years which affected her ability to keep a job and led to her child being removed from her custody. This month Maggie achieved a year of sobriety and regained custody of her child. She told staff in Sanford that she always wanted to go to school but her substance use disorder held her back. With support from staff, Maggie enrolled at York County Community College, and she will be starting courses in Forensic Social Work this summer. She is looking for an apartment for her family and a part-time job so she can buy a car. Maggie told staff that she is committed to her recovery, and she is attending daily Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings.
