I really enjoyed hearing about Pat and Chelsea’s experiences working as certified recovery specialists, especially since they’re also in recovery. I think it really says something about both of their characters that once they got into recovery they decided to get certified and help people with substance use disorder. Chelsea mentioned that she got a lot of help from a CRS before she started working at Magellan.

I didn’t know about CRS’s before meeting them so I learned a lot from Pat and Chelsea. I like that Chelsea pointed out that CRS’s support multiple pathways of recovery and figure out what works for a certain person. You could also tell how much Pat and Chelsea care about the people they help.
