Before I came to Destination Hope, my relationships were falling apart, I was hurting everyone around me. I felt like I was being torn in a thousand different directions, and unable to make a single decision. I felt broken, hopeless, and completely alone. I had tried to stay clean to no avail. I found myself in and out of working a program, and decided to try something a little different. I traveled about a thousand miles from home to completely start my life over with treatment at Destination Hope.
My time at DH has been invaluable to me. I was given the proper guidance, and support to get me started on a new path, and to navigate the ups and downs of early recovery. Now, I have eight months clean, and am maneuvering my way swiftly through the steps of NA with a sponsor. I work full-time at a local restaurant, live in a structured environment with friends in recovery, maintain contact with my family, and am rebuilding those core relationships.
Today, I am grateful for where I am, and the best is yet to come.
