True Grit Award

The Homestretch

An Airdrie man who spent 22 years struggling with drug and alcohol addictions is being recognized for his leadership when it comes to mental health care in Alberta. Mike Loughman is getting the True Grit Award from Alberta Lt.-Gov. Lois E. Mitchell at Government House in Edmonton this evening. It's an award that recognizes an individual who has overcome a mental health or addiction challenge, showing strength, determination, and grit and has gone on to assist others in their recovery. Loughman is 48-months sober and has turned his life around, working two different jobs to help other people struggling with addiction.
