Client Spotlight: Saralyn

Saralyn’s journey from addiction to recovery is a testament to the power of love, support, and unwavering dedication of those who helped her along the way.

When her younger brother first connected her with the IHS’ detox treatment program, she struggled to recognize the opportunity that laid before her. However, as she participated in the program, she found herself surrounded by a community of individuals who, like her, were fighting to reclaim their lives.

Through the guidance and support of the staff at ‘Imi Ola Piha Homeless Triage and Treatment Center, particularly her case manager Sophia Carrillo, Saralyn began to understand the importance of loving herself.

Sophia’s selflessness and commitment to her clients left an inedible mark on Saralyn’s heart. Moreover, it was the love and care she received from the entire team at the Center, including Uncle Clyde, Mrs. Kase, Miss S, Miss T, Dr. Lum, and Miss Yasmeen, gave her the strength to persevere.

As Saralyn’s time in the program drew to a close, she was filled with a mix of emotions – fear of the unknown, gratitude for the support she had received, and a burning desire to give back to those who had given her so much. She knew the journey ahead would be challenging, but she was ready to face it head-on, armed with the tools and love she had gained.

As Saralyn embarks on this new beginning of sobriety, she carries the love and lessons she has learned with IHS, determined to pay it forward and help others find their way to a brighter future.
