Zonta Helps Alvis Celebrate Women's Recovery
Alvis recently celebrated the graduation of 18 women who completed the Amethyst program. Amethyst, an Alvis recovery program, is an integrated behavioral health treatment program that's been helping women in Central Ohio turn their lives around for more than 30 years. This was the largest graduating class to date.
Amethyst also provides counseling and prevention services to the children of women in treatment. Two of the graduates also celebrated being able to give birth to healthy babies while in the program.
In addition to having a combined total of 40 years, 9 months, and 13 days of sobriety on graduation day, the graduates' accomplishments included newfound employment and promotions; regaining custody of their children; enhanced family relationships; exploration of cultural roots; and renewed independence and empowerment. They also overcame a host of challenges, including the death of a loved one from addiction, homelessness, serious health issues and more.
Alvis is grateful to State Auto Insurance for hosting the graduation, Studio Fovero Salon for donating hair styling services for the graduates, and the Zonta Club of Columbus for donating flowers and gifts for the graduation.
