Writers for Recovery is a series of writing workshops focused on stories of addiction and recovery. Participants write about their personal stories of struggle, perseverance, moments of doubt and inspiration and the slow but steady work of renewal and healing from addiction.
Caitlin Ferland is a participant in Writers for Recovery’s Burlington group. She has been sober for five and a half years.
Caitlin says writing about her experience helps her to express her feelings in a whole new way. She has participated in Writers for Recovery workshops for more than two years.
In this week’s Writers for Recovery podcast, Caitlin reads her original poem, “Dear Addiction.”
