A Holiday Message From Our Executive Director James Bailey
As we are wrapping up another year at The Victorian, I wanted to take a moment and wish you the best for this holiday season.
The “job” that each team member has at The Victorian is so much more than just merely their profession. Every day (and 24 hours a day), we are responsible for the well being of the clients that entrust their recovery to our ED professionals.
We are responsible for our client’s safety and healing – both physical and emotional. We are the caretakers for countless families’ daughters, sisters, mothers, and wives. We do not take this lightly and I can tell you that our team members have all found a new family here at The Victorian – with the other staff members and of course through caring for the clients who mean so much to us.
Our team knows both the incredible joy of seeing a client come back to take a “one year chip” and also the devastating reality of hearing about a alumnus’ continued battle with an ED. These daily victories and defeats can take a great toll on our team, so it is important that we trust in each other and pick each other up when the challenge of fighting addiction overwhelms us. We could never make it without caring for each other like we do for our clients.
I know 2013 is going to be a great year at The Victorian. I cannot wait to see all of the great enhancements we are adding into our programming here in Newport Beach.
On behalf of the entire team at The Victorian, we wish you the happiest of holidays and know that the best is yet to come in 2013!
