‘Recovery, like the escape from other near-death experiences, provides an opportunity to reorder priorities and live life in a more conscious, intentional way. It is a window of opportunity to find a level of meaning and fulfilment that might not otherwise have been possible. Through that process, everything in one’s life is touched. It is for many people, even with all its early struggles, a way to live simply and comfortably within one’s own skin and to live in service to something greater than oneself.’
William White, quoted in ‘Recover to Live’, by Christopher Kennedy Lawford
