Bridge House Gave Me a Life Worth Living

Wirth, Bridge House Alumni

Too often I followed such visits to the rooms of AA with a stop at the bar, hoping to just have a couple to take the edge off the hangover that plagued my working hours, only to find myself in that dreaded cycle of not being able to stop after once feeling the effect of the first drink.

To my own surprise, I’m learning that with the strength I thought I lacked, I can do this. I can live a clean, sober, and healthy life for my family, for my child, but most importantly, for myself.

Every single relationship I ever had I destroyed. I could not keep a job. Before I slept under a bridge, I found Bridge House. This caring and educated environment is just what I needed.

I arrived at Ms. Green’s office, completely exhausted, on January 7, 2007 and transitioned on January 10, 2008. I cannot truly express all that Bridge House did for me in that year. My parents were astonished and my stepmother (of 20 years) was truly meeting me for the first time.

“I can’t do this alone.” These five words comprise the realization that set into motion a transition that changed my life. Years of struggle, pain, and angst had whittled my resolve down to a low the likes of which I had not known possible.

I entered Bridge House looking for a way to stop. Stop using drugs, I initially thought. In reality, my drug use was only a symptom of my deeper problem: Myself. Selfish. Lost. Fearful.

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.

The day I stepped into Grace House I was not a happy camper. Being able to relate to each and everyone in treatment made me realize that I was no different than any of the other women. Underneath my pride and denial, I realized that I honestly needed this program and that for me, a 28 day program would have kept me sober …..only for those 28 days.

I almost gave up on myself, but with the help of my family and Bridge House I found a solution. I am grateful for a place Like Bridge house that continues to give me tools to help me grow in my recovery.

I am finally, truly learning the way to uphold sobriety, learning to be a productive member of society, a good husband and a healthy father. I am looking forward to the rest of my life thanks to this facility and the support that comes with it.

I was 14 years old the first time I drank. Drinking was something all of my friends and I did on weekends. At 17, I smoked weed for the first time. Drinking on weekends turned into drinking and doing coke on weekends. I was going at the same pace as my friends for years.

I lived in hell for so long and finally have a taste of heaven. For so long I hated myself and now finally have confidence and self-worth. Peace of mind is my new drug of choice and working a program of recovery is the only way I can keep it.

From the moment I walked into Grace House, I was welcomed with love and acceptance, which allowed me to love and accept me for the person I always thought I was.
