Since I’ve been in recovery, I have gained a family that is bonded together with love and compassion. I have learned a measure of self-worth that wasn’t imaginable. Before I walked through the doors of detox at The Healing Place, my life was empty and void of any meaning.
Before I came to The Healing Place, I had become the person I hated the most. In a sense I had lost myself. I could look in the mirror and not recognize the person staring back at me. I had sunk so low that I thought there was no hope for me to continue.
The Healing Place not only gave me a place to sit down and focus on myself, it taught me the steps of recovery that help me maintain my life today even in the face of a never-ending battle with addiction. The people I surround myself with, and those who I call my family, are people I have met through The Healing Place. The Healing Place gave me the overabundance of love and joy the I have in my life today.
My life is tough a times, but since completing The Healing Place, I have a purpose. And that purpose brings love and joy to my life.
