Although the change has to come from within VBRC has shown, and given me, all the tools necessary in realizing my full potential. They have encouraged me in all the positive aspects of my life but have not catered to the negative ones. Even though it's been a bumby and confusing ride (as trying to get and stay clean always is) they have never turned their backs on me. Being alone and far from home can be terrifying, however, I've never felt more loved and welcome than I have in this program, a home away from home. This is personal to them. The bumby ride progressively got smoother and I am now graduating the program today and coming up on 9 months sober. I feel free and full of ambitions and dreams, something I have never been able to say or experience in my entire life. It is incredibly exciting. I owe an immense part of that to them. When I asked what I could do to show some sort of gratitude for this service. I was told to go help someone else who's struggling. And that's really what this whole thing is all about to them. Thanks guys, I know we'll stay in touch!
