Today we had the honor of meeting with two people who had been placed in different treatment facilities through Operation HOPE. They have recently returned to Maine and are following after care plans. They both looked incredible, with so much health and happiness where there had been illness and despair. We wish them all the best on their path towards life long recovery.
When we launched Operation HOPE October 1st we had no idea if we would have any success, but we were willing to take a chance. As of today we've placed 133 Mainers into treatment across nine states. We are beginning to follow up with those completing their initial treatment and are hearing a lot of success stories so far. They still have a lot of work ahead of them to stay in recovery, and our partners at Portland Recovery Community Center have been amazing at connecting them with needed resources as they return home.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way. It hasn't always been easy, but it's certainly been worth it.
