- Picture: While the Seattle Seahawks were beating the Minnesota Vikings inside SeaHawks stadium on September 29, outside the stadium, protesters demanded a better inquest process than the one into the death of Robert Thomas Sr. A citizen inquest ruled in mid-September that the shooting of Thomas by an off-duty police office in April was justified. In this photo, Carl Mack, Vice President of the Seattle Chapter of the NAACP is held back by Seattle Police officers as he and other protesters try to move into the street outside the stadium.

- Picture: Phil Rohrer went through recovery at Cedar Hills and has been a counselor there since 1977. He decided to quit the restaurant business when a friend told him, “When you speak in A.A., you move people. You have a gift and you should share it. This is powerful stuff,” he says. “What a gift, to be able to do this for 25 years.”
- Picture: Cedar Hills’ residential treatment program is situated next to a landfill and a nursery. The center offers books to patients from the King County library system.
- Picture: Reuben, a patient nearing the end of his term in Cedar Hills, says he’s starting to feel like “a fine piece of leather, well put together.” Cedar Hills closes October 15, 2002.
- Picture: Casey, speaking in the counseling session, shared the victory of being clean and sober 92 days. Patients at Cedar Hills are required to help cook the food, do the laundry, and keep the grounds clean.
