Many of you know that I am also a nurse. In particular a substance abuse nurse, even though I am not actually working right now. My former boss and amazing friend, Amy Morris, is the clinical director at CTC- Pinehurst. She has been there for about a year and the transformation she has made in that facility is nothing short of astonishing. In that short of a time period she has managed to take a “broken” operation and turn it into an amazing state-of-the-art opioid treatment program.
September is National Recovery Month, so what better time to have an open house to promote treatment and recovery to this community. If you know anything about Amy, you know she doesn’t half way do anything. She loves what she does and really pours her heart and soul into her work and it shows. This event was no exception. There were 22 vendors from this area set up as well as an afternoon full of informative guest speakers. It was an event for everyone (even if you just came for the yummy food! :-P) and I am SO honored to have been asked to be a part of it.
Thank you to everyone who came out to this event and those who had a hand in putting it on. The staff at CTC-P are awesome and their unity and passion for substance abuse is so clearly evident after spending just a few minutes around them. I also feel like I should mention the phenomenal renovations and expansion that have been done to the clinic over the past 6 months or so. Please take a moment to look through the pictures of the improved clinic. It is nothing short of inspiring.
