Peer Narratives



Peer / OOOFC Board Member

"I came to Frederick for treatment in 2022 and found On Our Own, a non profit wellness and recovery center that supports people on their recovery journey. When I came here I volunteered and took advantage of all the opportunities they had and am now a member of the board of directors. The peers at On Our Own helped me make a resume, apply for employment, and provided resources to assist with my job search. As a result of this I was able to get my first job in recovery and find stable housing. 18 Months later and I am still in recovery and living the dream!"
