What a beautiful Christmas holiday here at Amity!

This morning, we were greeted with a gorgeous sunrise followed by a homemade breakfast casserole. 🥘

The Ladies Auxiliary of St. Paul Lutheran Church went above and beyond and created such a wonderful holiday care package for each one of our residents and they were opened with enthusiasm and gratitude!

After Morning Meditation, we piled into the dining room for the second annual GINGERBREAD REHAB create-a-thon and sugar cookie decorating extravaganza!

Tressa made everyone a wonderful holiday meal and we filled our bellies with a perfect Christmas ham and all the trimmings!

We can’t always be home for Christmas but if we’re lucky, we can still be with family.
This group is definitely a family!

Merry Christmas from our house to yours. 🎄🎄🎄

Amity has a new little mascot today! He’s pretty low-key and trying hard to blend in.

He sends a message to those that are struggling with addiction and have made the important step to seek treatment.

Get humble.
Show up.
Take a leap of faith.

We will take you as you are, warts and all. 🐸

A change we have made over the last couple of years is making appointments available via Telehealth.

Appointments are held in this private room located near the main office. There is a sound machine outside the room to provide an extra layer of privacy.

Audio and video are both crystal clear over Microsoft Teams creating the feeling of in-person sessions.

Using this digital platform has allowed us to get residents in for appointments sooner as well improving the communication efficiency between providers and Amity staff.

In Morning Meditation, we talk a lot about going within and making conscious contact with a higher understanding.

I don’t know who painted and displayed this but I love it. It reminds me that even when a life situation seems shattered to the point that it can’t be repaired, there’s a quiet knowing somewhere deep inside all of us that’s OK.

When we connect to that place, healing can occur. ❤️‍🩹

Today we highlight the BIG boss!

Amity Program Director, Kristen Casto came to us in February 2021 after first serving Westbrook as an Outpatient Case Manager.

Amity has undergone a lot of changes since she took the helm but the theme from the very beginning has been “Be better.”

She began right away, improving staff relationships, process efficiency, and building maintenance to name just a few.

When we lean on her to be the heavy with a resident that’s struggling, the message is the same. With steady empathy, the bottom line is “Be better. The only person you’re hurting is yourself.”

This quote sums her style up perfectly.

“You either get bitter or you get better. It’s that simple. You either take what has been dealt to you and allow it to make you a better person, or you allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate. It belongs to you.” Josh Shipp

Amity is better because you’re here. Thank you!

It’s awful to see members of the community suffering from the disease of addiction. Lots of elements have to come together to offer hope and structure to these individuals.

One thing that we have consistently been able to rely on here at Amity is the invaluable therapeutic element offered by our in-house therapist, Sheryl Osborn.

Sheryl asks the tough questions and often sheds light on painful and scary life events with the intention of beginning the healing process. As painful as this can be, it is crucial to investigate, forgive, nourish and close these wounds before moving into this new phase called recovery.

Sheryl has been an integral part of our program for 27 years and we could not begin to thank her enough for the dedication she has to healing our community. We hope to have her for many years to come!

Thank you, Sheryl!

As you are cleaning out those craft closets to make room for Christmas gifts, keep Amity in mind.

Learning a new skill and being able to create something beautiful or useful is HUGE in early recovery.

If you have knitting or crochet supplies that are in good shape, please consider donating them to a local recovery center.

Amity is located at 1011 Mission Drive, Parkersburg WV, 26101

If you have questions or want to arrange a drop off time, call 304-485-1721 extension 610 or ask for Jesse Hyde.

Thank you!

I wish I could take a big ol selfie with the folks I’m spending Christmas with but HIPAA says no.

We’re here at Amity together and I’m so proud to be with these individuals who are putting their recovery first today so they never have to miss another Christmas with their families.

We are really making the most of it! Our cook prepped an incredible meal yesterday that’s baking, we had a casserole delivery from our Admin Assistant and we are making merry today with holiday jokes, movies, naps, crafts, calls to loved ones and SO MUCH SUGAR!

Merry Christmas to all the heroes in the recovery community and a big ol helping of hope to those that are still suffering. May you find peace. 🕊️

Amity has a new goal book!

Complied by members of our own treatment team, this book walks our clients through 20 goals that give them the opportunity to face and explore where they have been as well a model of how to create a vibrant future in recovery.

Just a few things this book helps clients examine are the pitfalls of co-dependent relationships, restoring socialization comfort, healing guilt and shame and ways to begin building a relapse prevention plan.

Each day’s goal is shared with the other residents during Morning Meditation. This builds trust and connection among the group and allows for guidance and encouragement from those that understand exactly what they are going through.

We have been using this new book since early summer so it has seen several cycles of clients and it seems to reach across all substances and life situations to really help clients connect with a way to heal wounds of the past and reach for sustainable recovery.

It’s time for us to update our list of recovery numbers.

Reaching out and establishing a sober network is such an important part of a client’s time with us.

Sometimes, it’s simply the act of reaching out, or a search for 12-step sponsorship, other times it’s a call in a desperate moment of feeling like they can’t do this.

If you are interested in being a support person for our clients in their first month of recovery, please reach out to us in a private message. We will collect your number, best time to call, clean time and the program you work if applicable.

You are a vital part of the healing that is taking place in our community and we are so grateful.

Night shift duties include:

Stocking snacks
Light cleaning
Updating roster
Shift notes

Today, we would like to highlight a BHT that has been serving Amity clients for four years!

James Perkins is a staple around these parts.
He has a steady night shift gig right now but many alumni will recognize him from day and evening shifts as well.

We have heard from many residents and staff alike that James is their go to if they need someone to listen. He has such a soft spot for people that are struggling. His warm spirit puts them at ease right away. Having James on shift at night is comforting to our clients that have trouble sleeping or who are adjusting to their new, temporary home.

When James isn’t being warm and fuzzy, you’re sure to hear him telling a funny story or giving someone a hard time followed by a deep, booming laugh. It’s IMPOSSIBLE not to laugh with him even when you are the target of his hilarity!

All of us here at Amity feel better when he is around. We appreciate his consistency, honesty and commitment to helping our community.

Thanks, James!

I want to highlight a local tie-dye business today! Rad Dyes generously donated this vibrant assortment of shirts and bags to Amity last month and it was such a hit with our clients and definitely brightened up the place!

Some clients we serve come to us with very little and this kind of gesture makes me proud to live in the MOV.

Thank you so much!

This smiling face is one that you will see all over the building. Casey Allen is Amity’s Administrative Assistant and assist, she does!

She jumps in and helps with duties outside of her job regularly and can always be heard throughout the building asking “Is there anything you need…?” We are a needy bunch too! Casey makes sure we are stocked with office and client supplies and all the groceries needed to feed all the residents each week. No small task!

Casey can be found in the Amity kitchen on the extra-special days that she whips up a delicious crock pot meal that lures us all to the dining room with its amazing, simmering aroma.

Casey brings all her quality mom vibes to work. She will hold you accountable but still make sure your needs are met. She goes out of her way for all of us here every day and we are so thankful for her!

Hello Everyone! If you live in the Mid Ohio Valley, chances are good that you and this incredible lady have crossed paths and I guarantee you are a better person for it!

Marilyn Pasquerelli has been a dedicated Westbrook employee for more than forty years. Serving our community first as a case manager, Marilyn went on to get her PhD and spent 25 years as a therapist focusing on complex attachment trauma in children.

In 2020, she received a 200 hour training from the Yoga Center in Philadelphia and donates a few hours each week providing a beginner-level yoga class for Amity clients at the former YWCA on Dudley Avenue.

Marilyn is such a light and our clients love the time they get to spend in her class!

Thank you for all the ways you have and will continue to support our community!

Namaste 🙏🏼

Staff member of the Day:

Leah Wagoner

This marvelous mother of 6 (humans)possibly as many animals, has been our nurse at Amity for a whole decade! She is the backbone of our treatment team and we lean on her heavily to help make calls in tricky situations. She’s an avid enthusiast of the word of the day and can generally be heard laughing from outside the building.

Most important, she is a powerful advocate. For clients, for co-workers, for animals, for family, for children, and for friends. For you.

She either has the solution or she will help you find it.

Jesse Bell-Boggs (Jesse Hyde to us here at work) just celebrated her third year with us here at Amity!

This past January, she became our Residential Supervisor. Jesse is a great example of how you can grow within this agency. She has held other positions including BHT, Administrative Assistant, and Admissions Coordinator. Her professional development is invaluable and lends itself to being a great supervisor.

Her favorite part of the day is morning meditation, “When clients share these painful parts of their past and their hope for the future, it helps me understand my sister and her own struggles with addiction. I’m so grateful that they trust me with that.”

We are so glad to have Jesse as part of our team. She works hard to create a BHT staff that will care for our residents as if they were their own family members. Her green thumb and positivity do not go to waste here at Amity!!!

Happy Amity-versary, Jesse!

Springtime at Amity means recovery groups where we dig in the dirt and plant something beautiful that blooms!

If you think about it, that’s what we do in early recovery too. We “dig in the dirt”- unpack all the guilt, shame and fear. We ”plant” ideas, support network, coping mechanisms. We “grow something beautiful that blooms”- recover broken relationships, restore our health and gain the ability to give back.

We recover. We grow.

Meet the staff Monday! (except this week it’s Tuesday because of the holiday and all 😉)

It can be scary to take that first step and call for help. Lucky for our clients, your first interaction will likely be with Cheri Hensley.

Cheri took the position of Amity’s Admissions Coordinator because she wanted to give back to her recovery community by helping suffering addicts get into treatment.

Cheri found sobriety inside these walls so she knows exactly how it feels to begin the process of recovery. When a potential client makes the first series of calls to her office, they are met with genuine compassion and understanding.

The interview process is easily done over the phone but in-person meetings can also be arranged.

If you or a loved one need more information on how to get into Amity, please call our building at 304-485-1781 and select option 1 to speak with Cheri directly.

Recovery IS possible.

In Morning Meditation today, we discussed the ways we connect and encourage each other in early recovery and I shared these words of Fred Rogers to close.

If you place your focus on asking for or offering help when things are dark, that simple shift in focus can lift you out of a self-sabotaging headspace.

If you or a loved one need our help, we can be reached 24 hours a day @304-485-1781
