It’s Great To Be Alive

If you struggle with addiction, there is hope.

It’s Great To Be Alive is just that, a story of hope. It’s Great to Be Alive is the inspiring story of Glenn and Phyllis Jorgenson, told by Terry Woster. In this narrative, the author weaves into compelling stories of addiction and recovery told by Jorgenson and more than a dozen celebrities - including singers Johnny Cash and Larry Gatlin, actor Dick Van Dyke, and superstar athletes Carl Eller and Don Newcombe. These recollections illuminate the challenges that addicts face and help expand understanding of addictions, their effects on families and communities, and options for treatment.

This book addresses honestly the challenges that addicts face and shows how the River Park philosophy, based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous, can help people overcome addictions. It’s more than a story about addiction, it’s a story of hope.

Glenn Jorgenson is a friend and supporter of Volunteers of America, Dakotas. 100% of proceeds from It’s Great To Be Alive will be donated to Volunteers of America, Dakotas. To purchase your copy of Glenn’s compelling story, CLICK HERE.
