The Art of Living Sober

Becky C. has a story to tell; through words and through pictures.

The young woman who celebrated 10-years of sobriety on August 1, 2017 recently shared her inspirational story with the residents of Megan’s House.

“There is no shame in what I have been through or what I am going through,” she told the young women who call Megan’s House home. “I hid from the world when I was drinking and drugging. I don’t need to hide anymore.”

Before leaving Megan’s House, Becky C. left behind a gift; one of her works of art with the inspirational message “Together we survive.”

Residents have been working with the Brush Art Gallery in Lowell as part of the Megan’s House program’s holistic approach to recovery. As Becky says, art and recovery are intertwined, and her visit to the House helped reinforce that message.

The Megan’s House Foundation would like to thank Becky C. for providing yet another important learning experience for our residents on their own paths to recovery. To learn more about her work, please visit her website at
