Melissa To, Program Coordinator
Melissa joined the staff in 2003 after getting intensive structure and tools to help her live clean and sober. Her drive to succeed within herself is to give back to others what was given to her. In doing so she assists, guides and helps transform addicts and alcoholics into becoming positive individuals that are prepared to face reality again. One of her most honest sayings is, "Life is going to show up no matter what. You need to have the proper tools to take on life, but while doing it clean and sober. Real women and men do what they need to do and not what they want to do." At 27 she is actively attending college, working a full-time job and walking in freedom each day from this deadly disease. She states, "SSH saved my life. They helped me rise from my biggest fall and gave me knowledge and understanding of myself. For that I am blessed and truly grateful... Life is good!"
