Editor’s note: Mike Doggett, UGM’s Aftercare Manager, addressed the recovery participants at a recent phase-up celebration in UGM Women’s Recovery. Mike has a critical role in UGM’s efforts to support people through at least 5 years of active recovery so they’ll have the greatest likelihood of lifelong recovery. Here's what he said.
You can’t spend any amount of time around UGM without being changed by it. As a Volunteer, donor, or employee, partnering with UGM changes us as well as the people we serve. Our lives are being transformed.
Moms who enter the UGM Recovery program at Anna Ogden Hall often have open cases with Child Protective Services. Staff like Kamee help them navigate all the requirements and successfully reunite with their children.
