Voices for Recovery
Chaplain Farris Robertson
I finally found long-term recovery at age 31. That was after having lived in a ghetto, jails, and mental wards, and having participated in various recovery programs. My battle to recover is nothing unique, but my dedication to long-term sobriety shines as an example for the 400 people I impact each week.
As founder of Recovery Chapel in Springfield, MO, I'm fortunate to be celebrating 25 years in recovery. This gives me the heart and clarity to lead an organization that is growing by leaps and bounds, with 10 recovery houses, a rehabilitation facility, a worship center, a 12-step and Christian-friendly environment, and 4 business enterprises that offer training and sustenance. I am simply grateful for the opportunity to serve a world in desperate need of sanity and sobriety.
