The past few years of my life have been a struggle.
I beat myself down, I came here a broken man. I didn’t trust nobody, not even myself.
My life was a struggle. My family was watching me die before their eyes and
there was nothing they could do about it. I was in my own prison, I didn’t fear death,
I welcomed it. I thought there was nothing left for me in this world.
Now I like the man I see in the mirror today, everyday. I find a piece of who I am and I can honestly
say I’m happier today than I have ever been. At the end of life people don’t have to
remember me for all the bad I’ve done in my life. They will now remember me for the
good things I’m gonna achieve in my life. This journey through my addiction have been a broken
road, but now I got the tools to fix that broken road. I’m a new person and all I have to say to the world is
don’t judge me by my past, I don’t live there no more. I want to thank all the clients for your support
and most of all I want to thank my family for being here for me, and supporting me through
all, and everything you do, and loving me. Because without you I wouldn’t be anything.
So thank you. This is a wonderful program. Clients, stick
it out. Take it from an older person, it does help. This is truly a blessing pain, and you all
should embrace it being here. It is the best thing that I have ever had in my life. This has changed my life. I can’t even
believe the person that I am today. I never thought that I’d be here and thank you so much. Because I’ve deprived my daughter of a loving, caring, responsible father for so long and I’m gonna be her hero. And I mean that from
the bottom of my heart, because she is the most important thing in my eyes. To all of the clients you’re in a great
place here. That’s really all I can say. The staff is great, they help you. The only
advice that I can say is to stick it out, stick it out. You don’t have to let the past define you
anymore. We all have our future and we’re We all have our future and we’re
all doing it one step at a time. You guys have plans, go out there and achieve your
goals that you set for yourself and redefine yourself. On behalf of the staff and the clients,we wish you all good luck and congratulations.
