Slade Skaggs
RSPS, Communities for Recovery
Owner, Recovery Centered Living

I used opioids and other drugs for 25-years – most of those years here in Austin, where I was born and raised. I have overdosed and I have been hospitalized more times than I can count. I have felt angry, scared, and hopeless. I haven’t known how to deal with my feelings and I haven’t had any feelings at all.  I have been in recovery since July of 2016.  I wanted to improve the quality of my life, but recovery seemed so hard. I didn’t know how to make plans for the future or what was im- portant to me. I was frustrated and fearful. What made a difference in my recovery was connecting with peer recovery support services. My peer helped me feel hopeful, set goals, and make choices that would have been so much harder if I was doing it on my own.  My recovery and the life I have now are products of Peer Recovery Support. Peer Recovery made such a difference in my life that I decided to give back and help people who are struggling with the same experiences that I have had to make choices to improve their lives.
