Gilbert LaRoque’s Story

My name is Gilbert LaRoque. I am a counselor at the Men’s Residential program here at Bakersfield Recovery Services. I have been clean and sober for 11 years. Recovery is a journey. There is no cure. It is a change in my life from the very core outward. I am sober only today. I live in the moment aware that this is what I have with gratitude. I am a blessed man to be here with these amazing ladies and gentlemen I get to serve every day. I truly believe staff or client, we are all family. Trust the Process.

    Gilbert. This is Bobby Mistriel. I was there couple years ago. Just wanna say, I really love U. You are genuine and true. You’re an awesome individual and treat everyone with respect and dignity. It was my true pleasure meeting U. BTW: I’m still clean and sober – no issues with parole – and am doing good. Thanks for your help man. Much love
