When I came to La Hacienda I wasn't quite ready to be 100% sober. However, they taught me the way when I was ready. After leaving La Hacienda, and ignoring their advice, I did have a relapse. But less than a year later, when I was truly ready to be sober, what they taught me I was able to put into action and it saved my life. In less than two months, god willing, I will have eight years sober.
I had been to treatment prior to La Hacienda and had really not learned a thing. In many ways, I owe my life to La Hacienda and the people there.
