Recovery Point Charleston celebrates two years of work in the community

West Virginia

It’s an unassuming building in the heart of the West Side flats.

But what’s happening inside of Recovery Point Charleston is remarkable.  The organization, is celebrating two years of life-changing work.

Two years and 48 success stories- and counting.  The road to recovery for the woman who go through the program isn’t easy, but what worth having ever is?

Anna Holley is a program manager.  “I’m just giving back what other women gave to me when I was in that position,” she said.

Holley was once addicted to heroin, in and out of jail and treatment and living on couches on on the street.

Life wasn’t life at all.

She said, “Being able to see what my life is now is a miracle.”

She knew she needed help.  So, she got it.  Anna moved from Kentucky to Charleston to assist in replicating the type of facility she completed.  “It feels like my purpose.  It feels like what I should be doing,” Holley said.

Today, she’s three years sober and passes along the knowledge that other women gave to her.  She’s spent two years being involved with a treatment facility that believes in hard work, community outreach, and giving back.

“The women and the alumni that come back to help- it’s a whole community of women in recovery.  It’s amazing,” she said.

Anna’s office is filled with inspiration and with photos.  She’s married to the love of her life, who is a Recovery Point Huntington alumni.  She’s the stepmom to a beautiful little boy.

She has so many reasons to smile.  For the last two years here, she’s reminded dozens of others who come through these doors why they can smile, too.  

As for the future?  She said, “I just hope to see many other women complete the program and do well.”

A birthday wish sure to come true.
