I’m a divorced mother of one and my addiction with alcohol began at the age of 16. It slowly progressed to other drugs and eventually my life started to spin out of control. For a while, I was a functioning alcoholic/addict, but it was only a matter of time before it all would catch up with me. I was lying and cheating and doing things I’d never do sober, just to get high. Then at 36, living alone with my 4 year old daughter, my addiction took control. I lost my job and realized I really needed help before I lost my daughter, my home, my car, and my life. Grace House was recommended to me by a good friend and also my therapist.
Since arriving here, I have learned so much about my disease of addiction and also about myself. My self-esteem and self-confidence has continued to rise more and more each day. Without the help and care of Grace House and staff, I know my life would have continued to spin out of control. Thanks to Grace House I will be able to get a new job, get help with obtaining housing for myself and my daughter, and, most of all, have a clean, sober, and healthy life. For that, I will always be grateful.
