After leaving treatment, to protect my recovery, I had to stay connected to the community I got clean in. A big part of my recovery is being the best father I can be to my daughter. Through the Dad’s Recovery Speaker meeting and Facebook group, I connected with other Dads who came from different walks of life and had different experiences, but what we had in common was that we all wanted to be there for our kids. In the meetings, I feel safe and confident to share my struggles, achievements, and just what's going on in my life. I’m grateful for the support I've gained in this community. But I had to do the work.
