Mike Curran is a St. Anthony’s graduate who works full time, coaches high school baseball and speaks in public on recovery. He is writing his story and he’s trying to interest publishers. You can see his sobriety experiences and thoughts on Facebook.
I like reclamation stories. I like seeing people who thought they were nothing contributing to other people’s lives. And I like Mike Curran. So I “liked” his page.
St. Anthony’s doesn’t endorse anything in Mike’s book (which is still being written), except for the part where it’s good to get clean and sober, it’s good to use programs and build a community in order to stay clean and sober and live a better life, and it’s good to help others.
But you couldn’t find a better example of a graduate of the Fr. Alfred drug and alcohol recovery center. A look at his page would reveal a lot about what we hope people will be able to do with their lives after they’ve lived at the Fr. Alfred Center. And if you happen to “like” his page, you know that it does not necessarily reflect the views of St. Anthony Foundation. Except for the part that says that sobriety, self-respect, and service are good.
