There are many obstacles in life we must face to grow, change and thrive. Instead of facing them I found myself turning to drugs and alcohol. This only created a much larger dilemma and made everything around me unmanageable. After losing jobs, relationships, opportunities and finally my sense of self,I felt totally powerless and decided to get help. Addiction was bigger than me. I was given a second chance and a sober community of women welcomed me with open arms. Through building a healthy relationship with my spiritual, mental and physical self I have been able to start to feel whole again. I am grateful to be able to walk this path with you as many did with me.
