EUGENE, Ore. -- Hundreds of people woke up bright and early Wednesday morning to recognize those on the front lines of alcohol and drug addiction.

Serenity Lane organized the community awards breakfast.

More than a dozen specialists were honored, including police officers, clergy members, doctors and counselors.

Serenity Lane's Communications Director, Monique Danziger, said the work is high in stress and low in recognition.

"There's a lot of miracles, there's a lot of hope, there's a lot of seeing people's lives change, but at the same time there's also a lot of challenges and obstacles," Danziger said. "So it's just coming together and feeling like what you're doing is making a difference and it's important."

More than 500 people attended Wednesday morning's breakfast, which is now in its seventh year.
