Recovery Story: Mark Litvine

“I wasn’t a bad person trying to get good. I was a sick person trying to get well.”

Mark Litvine is a person in long term recovery. If you have never heard Mark’s story, this is a must watch for you. From mental health diagnoses and self-medicating, to a felony and jail time, to eventually finding a path to recovery and serving others, this is a story of hope and love.
