Objectives of the Curran Seeley Alumni Council
It is the objective of the founding members of the Council to remain engaged in involvement with the Curran Seeley community, by way of event planning and participation, meeting attendance, philanthropy, and substance abuse education. As a council, we hope that our collective experiences and stories of success in recovery will aid in our efforts to support the Curran Seeley mission. Any Curran Seeley Alumni who wish to participate in various activities or planning of events will be part of a C/S Alumni Club. Our goal is to develop a group of individuals that will meet regularly to share their stories, their strength and hope; and their ideas for the development of an additional support group for people struggling with substance abuse disorders.
My name is Cody Grubbs. I’ve been clean and sober since November 28th 2006. My life was out of control since the 10th grade, once I took the first drink or drug I couldn’t stop. This led to jail and disappointment for family and friends. One arrest led to a “suggestion” from a judge that I attend Curran Seeley for IOPT. After finishing IOPT I’ve continued on the path of recovery, with help from others. I now have a beautiful family and successful business. There’s no doubt the lessons learned at Curran Seeley are the foundation to my recovery.
My name is Danielle and I have been in recovery since 2013. With lots of help from Curran Seeley and treatment court I have been able to dramatically turn my life around. I was a hopeless drug addict, who didn’t know how to stop using. Today my life is so amazing, I finally love myself and others. My goal in life is to be able to give back to my community by being of service in any way possible.
As a blackout drinker I found my definition of incomprehensible demoralization. Arrest records, financial penalties for lawyers and fines and finally the loss of gun rights seemed to fuel my anger and resentment for society, cops, judges and counselors. As I attempted court ordered sobriety, Curran Seeley taught me about recovery, thinking errors and how to take healthy risks. My life today is full of integrity, responsibility and pride of accomplishment. Sobriety date: 11/04/2004
I felt crazy. I was a wife, mother, business woman, daughter, sister, and friend, and no one knew how miserable I was. How did I get here? My drinking began at a young age and progressed over 25 years until I decided that I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I told a friend who immediately got me the number to Curran Seeley and two days later, I was in outpatient treatment. Sober since 2011, every day is a gift. I see the beauty in the world around me, but especially within myself.
