Steve and Shane have gone through the Bethesda Workshops programs as participants, so their personal recovery experience makes it easy for them to relate to former and future attendees. Their primary responsibility is to support Bethesda Workshops alumni. The Oakleys also connect with counselors and clergy who refer to the program or with those who need to hear about it. They are available to speak and share about Bethesda Workshops at churches, meetings, and events.
