At Mariposa Recovery Services, we believe that chemical and alcohol dependence is a serious disease and that abstinence from alcohol and drugs is just the beginning. Healthy and continuous sobriety requires real change and a transformation in attitude and outlook on life. We care for and nurture our residents as they develop the necessary skills to build a rich, full and balanced sober life. We help them find the courage to change those beliefs and behaviors that no longer fit the person they want to be. We believe that lasting, emotional sobriety cannot be achieved alone. With Mariposa Recovery Services, you will find a family of individuals committed to a “we” program of recovery and who work together to create a treatment plan and sober living environment conducive to growth, support and accountability. We encourage our alumni to return to celebrate sobriety milestones and to support residents new in their sober journeys.
Executive Director / Owner
On March 17th,2009, I was Reborn. Hello, my name is Suzie Jacobson. That name meant nothing to me because of all the pain it caused those whom I loved and loved me. As I struggled through the adversity of the disease of addiction, I found that I knew nothing about who I was but I quickly learned that as an addict I had three choices in life: jails, death, and institutions. Addiction is also a disease of perception so the adversity that I thought made me the victim was in fact teaching my life lessons. When I stopped “living in the problem” and began “living in the solution,” I found someone and that someone was the woman I always dreamt to be. I spent a year in treatment and woke up every day grateful to be there, grateful to be alive, grateful to work the 12 steps, grateful to go to meetings, and grateful to carry the message of AA. That is who I am today. Today, I am a woman who seeks to maintain and continually grow spiritually. A woman who leads her life through faith and integrity. A woman who would go to any length to help those with the willingness to get sober. In September 2011, I opened Mariposa Enrichment Program that was designed to help men and women recover from addiction and alcoholism. I will humbly allow Mariposa to speak for itself for it belongs only to God. Mariposa has grown into something more than any of us had ever envisioned. In 2020, Mariposa Recovery Services was created to broaden the services so we could offer more to the clients and community in which we serve. I studied Biology at Jacksonville State University in 1990. I am humbled and grateful to say that I am a CADCT.
