CDP Talent on Display

About 30 clients and staff members gathered at the Chemical Dependency Program to show off their skills in a talent show, reinforcing the principle that "the long Road of Recovery may have its bumps, hills, curves, and climbs, but it can be an incredibly worthwhile trip that we can learn to savor along the way" as beloved counselor and organizer of the show, Carmen Levasseur said. At Greenwich House, with help from our talented staff, we try to emphasize that recovery can be fun.

The clients who participated in the show shared their talents, along with a little insight into their personal recovery story, through poetry, song, artwork or even a group get-down lip synching to Aretha Franklin's rendition of "Respect."

View some photos of the amazing artwork on display in the gallery that counselors set up as part of the show. How bout a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T for our wonderful staff and clients for their hard work and courage to share of themselves! 


The Gift
By Bella Nerri

What can I give to Jesus for all he's given to me?
What can i give to Jesus, what would an appropriate gift be?

For a Lord who needs for nothing and owns all that is,
and all that is to be.
The only thing of any value that I have to give him,
is me.

I will praise your holy name in victory and
I'll still sing your praises in defeat.
Because to be one of your own dear Lord,
makes everything so sweet!

No one likes to go through the fire,
but if you're alive you definitely will.
But just to know and love the lord,
helps me swallow even the bitterest pill.

I sing the songs of thanksgiving,
and give to you alone my praise,
so that this way in the land of the living,
I may have nothing but blessing filled days!

So that my family is protected,
and that I may rest at night;
no father, my life is not perfect,
but I do my best to do what's right.

You said you'd accept me as I am,
and I believe you know me through and through.
Father, I'm glad that you no my heart,
no matter what this sin-filled flesh might do...
