Life is a journey, and sometimes it can knock you down. I’m starting to learn that life is what you make of it, and that I don’t have to be perfect. I came from what seems to be like a normal background. In today’s society, one would be considered blessed, to have two loving parents, and a stable home with two older brothers. I was a happy individual growing up, Somewhere after high school, I found drugs. It was not my intention to search for drugs, but I was running from reality, and found myself addicted. I spent six years battling my addiction. I was out of hope , and honestly out of courage to want to get sober. His House treatment Centers was recommended to me. Hesitant, I called. That call would be the start of better days. I went through the residential program, and then into the Intensive Outpatient Program. When you spend years on and off the streets constantly depressed, in shame, no money,, and addicted, accepting love from others is a challenge. That’s exactly what His House did for me. They not only had a genuine concern for me, but they helped me love myself again. The resources that are offered here such as family group, have helped me mend my relationship with my parents. We haven’t been this close in years. I would have come a lot sooner had I known that this program offers salvation. Here, you find all walks of life, and the message here is love and forgiveness. His House gave me my life back.
