I too have had to leave organizations for my own recovery advancement, it is difficult, it can feel destructive. When I left a good organization, it was at once deeply saddening and empowering.
You will be missed Ward, you will find local supports, you will survive and move forward in your recovery path. Leaving is not a bad thing, it is a necessary thing at times. I am confident this is a good choice for you at this time. You are most welcome back, but no pressure.
