"My life has completely changed. I'm so happy, peaceful and have a huge support group. I now can identify when I'm headed for trouble and what steps to take to prevent a relapse. Thank you for my new sober life!"
"I was able to discover root causes for my addictions and develop the tools to combat them going forward. … I couldn't do it with AA alone."
"Using the tools of recovery I have repaired most the wreckage of my past. Now I’m working on a plan to start a new business as a contractor. My life today is richer and more meaningful than I would have thought possible six years ago."
"My recovery programs is going great and just wish I can tell everyone who may be struggling that that recovery starts anytime when you want it to start ad are willing to take direction. Don't miss the miracle!"
"On October 2, 2009 I will have 6 years of sobriety. In those 6 years, I have graduated from college, gotten married, enrolled in law school and became a father. I have been married 5 years in February and am in my 2nd year of law school at University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law (one of the top law schools in the country)."
"I have seen a different way to live and it is up to me to take action. I will do everything in my power to make my life manageable and meaningful. I do not know what the future holds for me, although I do believe it is a future without drugs."
"Having never been in treatment, I was impressed by the way it made me feel good about myself... I learned a lot about friendship and how having sober friends is the key to achieving long term sobriety. I care immensely about the clients and staff I worked with. I will miss them all, but will keep in touch with many."
"Thank you for giving us our life back! James went on the men's Walk to Emmaus in March which he never would do before because he could not stop drinking. He is wonderful. We go places again when our lives used to be scheduled around the bottle. We laugh like we are newlyweds."
"I finally got about four or five days of sobriety under my belt and started seeing things differently. I felt better. I was eating good food and hiking and exercising. I was making new friends who knew all about my using but didn't judge me."
