First off, I would like to start by saying thank you. This opportunity that I have been given has changed my life entirely! My outlook on life is so much more positive and hopeful. Before coming here, I was a total mess – disconnected with life and extremely miserable. Let’s just say the word ‘hope’ was nowhere to be found in my vocabulary. This opportunity you have given me gave my mother a new son, and gave my son a new father. If I didn’t make the conscious decision to walk through these doors, I very well might be dead right now. Thanks to this program, peers and staff alike, I now have the tools to be a productive, healthy, sober member of society. I honestly can’t thank this program enough for all of the encouragement I have gotten, and the hope I have gained.
