Addiction had finally taken me to the point that it is certain to do, hopelessness and broken. I had been on a 2 week alcohol binge when I had a brief moment of awareness and knew my life was in danger and that if I didn't get help right then, I was going to die. Reluctantly I asked my fiance (who wasn't an addict) to see if he could get me in somewhere for help. He reached out to The Liberty House and found the help we both needed. They urged him to get me to a detox unit while they got everything else arranged for my placement within their house. When I arrived the first thing I noticed was the happiness on all of the girls faces, and I wanted that too. The staff was welcoming and the entire unity of the house encouraged treatment to start the very moment that I walked in. The program was intense and everything I did was recovery related. I learned how to follow and then how to lead in my own path of recovery. They helped get me back to the basics of sobriety and gave me the tools I needed to go back to my normal day to day life with the know how that I use every day to stay sober. I am grateful for a lot of things and the Liberty House is at the top of that list.
