My name is Donna Brown and I have been clean and sober for 4 years. I have worked for Bakersfield Recovery Services for 3 years and currently in the position of Site Supervisor for all sites. My journey in recovery started 4 years ago at the Mission of Kern County, in their 1-year discipleship program. This was the best decision I made for my life. In 2015, in the height of my addiction, my family gave me an ultimatum, get help or they would have nothing to do with me. They were hurt and could no longer bare the pain of watching me destroy myself. At that time, God led me to the Mission, to mold me into the mother, daughter and human that He has designed me to be. There was no turning back. Since that time, there have been many struggles that I have overcome, all with God and my family right by my side. I enjoy every day being a part of the BRS family and I am blessed to get to be living the life I chose today.
