Running Toward Recovery

November 6, 2011 at 11:48 pm Leave a comment

Just before West Baltimore drug treatment program Tuerk House hosted a 5k in November 2010, one runner told us his story of addiction, recovery, and…pest control. From Maryland Morning, November 2010.

Aaron Mitchell went through the Tuerk House program nine years ago, and he sat down to tell us his story of addiction, recovery, and running.

Thanks to Aaron for sharing his story, and thanks to former Show Me the Stimulus reporter Doug Donovan and Tuerk House’s Elliott Driscoll for getting us in touch with Aaron.
