In September, UF Health Florida Recovery Center physicians, staff, patients and former patients gathered at the annual alumni banquet to celebrate National Addiction Recovery Month.
During the event, former patients reunited with clinicians who cared for them during treatment at FRC.
This year, two FRC staff members — Fred Ramirez, LCSW, therapist, and Carol Johnson, R.N. — were recognized for their dedication to addiction treatment and investment in their patients’ lives. Both were surprised by the award and felt humbled to be honored for something that they truly love to do.
Johnson said, “Receiving this award shows me I am impacting our patients in a positive way. What a blessing to work at a place where I can share my experience, strength and hope with others.”
