Gratitude for public support of FRC’s mission

James Stitt

Season’s Greetings and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. As we approach the culmination of the year, I extend sincere holiday greetings on behalf of the Family Recovery Center.

Reflecting on the past year, we acknowledge the challenges that have touched our lives and communities. In the face of adversity, we are mindful of the uncertainties many individuals and families endure, be it economic struggles, the constant barrage of distressing news, or the ongoing impact of the pandemic.

It is with gratitude that we recognize the continued support from the community, who have engaged with our information and services. Your inquiries and suggestions have been instrumental in shaping our efforts to educate and promote wellness in the community.

Throughout this challenging year, our commitment has been to address the profound issues of overdoses, substance abuse, and behavioral health. Our dedicated staff tirelessly works with clients and families, striving to provide answers and to support those seeking meaning and stability in their lives.

The generous contributions from churches, organizations, and individuals have played a crucial role in sustaining our mission. Your donations of food, clothing, and gifts have supported our clients.

This is our 50th anniversary year of providing clinical and educational services, we celebrate the successes of our clients and the many we educated in our county schools. Graduations from our recovery house signifies progress, and we continue to expand our outreach, thanks to our staff and support from Columbiana County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board.

Despite the persistent challenges posed by the opiate epidemic and substance abuse, we remain optimistic about the ongoing recovery efforts within Columbiana and Jefferson counties. The dedication of individuals attending Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and now Gamblers Anonymous meetings, as well as the community support provided through the Traina House, serves as a testament to the resilience of those on the path to recovery.

Recovery is an arduous journey, and your encouragement and support are integral to its success. As we navigate these difficult times, we express our gratitude for your unwavering support and encouragement. Your role as role models for our clients, offering a helping hand, words of encouragement, and support in the workplace and community, is invaluable.

In closing, as you partake in the festive traditions of the season, please know that your kindness has not gone unnoticed. We extend our heartfelt thanks and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. May the coming year bring continued opportunities for positive change and collective well-being.
