NEW HARTFORD – The Center for Family Life and Recovery is continuing their efforts to help those battling drug addiction, and today they're celebrating those who have worked tremendously hard to live healthier lives.

On Tuesday morning the 20th annual April Awareness Breakfast was held at Daniele’s in New Hartford. In those 20 years, those with the center say it's the shift to recognize addiction as a disease that can be cited as one of the reasons why so many are now living free from drugs.

By managing addiction, the head of the center says more and more people are realizing the struggle, and they are working together to help those suffering from this national crisis.

“You look into a room like in there, 50 percent of those individuals have been impacted by addiction – whether it's with their family members, a close friend, or themselves," said Cassandra Sheets, CEO of the Center for Family Life and Recovery. "And probably even here a little bit more because some of them just have really said that they are. But to be able to say, you know, I support people with their recovery and getting to their recovery, is huge.”

The center also recognized the service of Dr. Katherine Warden for her contributions in helping so many in the local community break free from their addiction.
