Kristina Brown's post on Goodwall - #ScholarshipNow 10 years of substance abuse turned into a full time purposeful career, recover, and working towards an LADC/Social Work license!! I have worked so hard to even say I am applying for scholarships/grants to go back to school. It took years to find myself a purpose, and through recovery I found just that. I started working at Hazelden which lead to an application and GCU to further my career goals, dreams, passions, etc. Nothing I ever believed I’d be capable of 2 years ago.
