In Sonya’s own words:

“Outside Edge has encouraged me to love and be true to ‘the newly emerging me.’ Through creative play, I’ve come to see that I can step up, grow up, and take responsibility for my life… I’ve learned how to relate to others – men and women – honestly and creatively. I’ve learned how to work in a group – the constant battle between ego and self – wanting to be seen, be heard yet wanting to hide, never knowing how much to contribute, how much to give others their space. But the lessons don’t end here. I’ve learned about the very nature of life itself. I’ve started on a life-long journey towards finding myself.”

—Sonya, recovering addict.
