I went to other treatment facilities and I was handed worksheets and taught to stay away from certain people and places. At Daylight, working the Steps was a completely new way of life. It doesn’t just work for drug addicts, it’s a program to make people better. If you put the work in, you will see results. It’s really unbelievable.
I was a broken heroin addict. I didn’t want to live, I didn’t see purpose in living. All there was was heroin and alcohol and anything I could use to fill the void. But today, I’m happy. I have purpose. I get to show people what was given to me through Daylight Recovery Center, which has been amazing. And I’m really grateful for that.
My life was a complete disaster. I could not keep a job, I couldn’t really keep people in my life. A year and ten months later my life is beautiful, all credit goes to Daylight Recovery Center. As an addict, I thought that my purpose was to shoot dope until I die and that’s how it was going to be. And that’s really sad to me now.
I came to treatment at Daylight Detox & Recovery Center and I was like, This is where I should be. It’s really, really cool to actually be excited about next month and next year. I’m actually enjoying what I’m doing. I’m just really, really hopeful for my future.
