Coming back to SUWS as a mentor has been one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. I came back with intentions of shedding insight on recovery to the Phoenix group and to gain personal awareness about my own life. Needless to say, SUWS is a once in a lifetime experience and I have gotten way more than what I came for.
