I have recovered substance abuse and addiction, I\'ve relied on the help and guidance of mentors and support for the last 7 years. My network has given me with the tools, services, and resources necessary to overcome and move past my disorder and pursue a successful and healthy life.
I\'ve sponsored alcohol abusers through AA program, worked with families, community resources and providers, and other groups to encourage participants’ sobriety and growth.
Assisting individuals in need with various ideas and tools to help them reach their goals by visiting local inpatient detox and treatment facilities has helped me gain interpersonal abilities to provide optimal solutions and support independence for the individual.
When I learned of your need for a Peer worker I was excited to submit this letter and the enclosed resume for your review. As a recovered former troubled youth with solid experience serving as a resource, advocate, and supporter for individuals going through similar dependencies/disorders/ behaviors, I am ready to put my background, challenges, and strengths to the benefit of others and excel in this capacity.
With outstanding skills in communication, my abilities and personal experiences have positioned me to thrive in helping others. My ability to connect with individuals has been the bright spot in my life and my experience as a Peer Support Specialist has prepared me to make a strong contribution in this field.
The opportunity to discuss your needs in more detail would be welcome.
