Making A Difference

Encouraging Recovery was inspired by my ability to provide support and encouragement while I was employed at a substance abuse program in New Jersey. Initially, I was in the administrative capacity and later moved onto clinical support by providing placement to detox and residential programs. The exposure was life changing and made a huge impact in my life.  My determination to help those suffering with the disease of addiction has amplified after my nephew, Jeremy, died of an overdose. I pray that no one has to bear the pain and devastation of losing someone they love to addiction.  I am sharing my story hoping to break the cycle of destruction that addiction inflicts upon us. You may contact me to set up a speaking engagement. All proceeds will be used to meet our goals assisting the substance abuse population. 

Together we can make a difference.     Edna E. Roman

Restoring Our Community
