72.L&L-Darlene Nivens

After the hard work it took to overcome her own struggles with addiction, Darlene Nivens is dedicated to showing up for others in the same position. And she isn’t doing it alone, thanks to Bendable. Now six years sober, she is an addiction counselor at Victory Clinical Services in South Bend, where she points her clients toward Bendable to learn about resume writing, self care, preparing to go back to school and more. “I wish I had known about this,” Darlene said. “There’s so much on here to help people.”
