My name is Tanaisha Pearson and I’m a person in long term recovery. This means that I have been without a drink or a drug for 5 years. I come from a great, loving family. My mom is a Police Captain and my dad is a Fire Fighter Paramedic. Never in a million years did they think they would have to put their oldest daughter in rehab. But it happened, and it was the best thing for me. I was hopeless. I was malnourished. And I was desperate. I reached out for help and a God of my understanding answered my call. I completed treatment, I joined a 12 step program, I moved into a sober house, and I did any and everything that was suggested. Today, I have an amazing job where I facilitate other addicts and alcoholics to get into treatment. I am also a recovery coach, someone who can use their personal experience to uplift clients in the beginning of their recovery. When I am not working I enjoy being a loving mom, a caring daughter and a wonderful friend. I am truly grateful for the opportunities that I have today. I can also say that none of these would be possible if I wasn't clean and sober, and for that, I am grateful.
