Clay has been a resident of Mariners Inn’s Extended Residency since March 2012.As the most senior member of the current residents, he has seen and been part of the many changes that have occurred in the housing program in that time.

In the beginning of Clay’s stay, behavioral changes in his recovery process were not a priority.His willingness to help and be positive to others was almost nonexistent. With continued time in recovery, the changes in Clay’s life have been significant. He not only has remained drug free, he has constantly encouraged his fellow residents in their own personal journeys of recovery.He has upheld the integrity of the program and has represented the mission of Mariners Inn.

Clay has recently dealt with many medical challenges that have required multiple surgeries and extended hospital stays. Now that his health has improved, he is in the process of locating a permanent place of residence.He has stated that he will make it a priority to remain active and connected with Mariners Inn through the alumni program to remain on the right path, as well as to assist other men in recovery at Mariners Inn.
