I called Impact Recovery for crisis help. Growing up, I experienced severe punishment, abuse and disapproval from my dad, things no kid should ever have to go through. I struggled at school and was afraid to ask for help, which led me to be a distraction in class, leading to struggles with life.
At a young age I fell into addiction because that would numb all the pain that I was in. I found myself in trouble with the law, which led to short jail time. I thought that jail time would be enough to overcome my addiction, but after getting out, I went back to the same crew, returning to addiction.
My family tried so many times to help and support me, but it just wasn’t working and I was pushing them away. They had to step back and watch me hit rock bottom. After hitting rock bottom in 2018, I knew I had to do something about it and reach out and ask for help. I went to Impact Recovery.
Program / Completion
After 20 months of some hard times, I eventually finished the program in January 2020. The love and support I had from everyone there and after getting trust back from my family, I can honestly say it is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself in my life.
Life after Impact
I am now over 3 years clean from drugs and alcohol, which is something I never thought I could overcome. Living a life free from addiction is just the best thing, I am now so thankful to have full support from my family and I am so blessed now to be able to give back to others and help and support them through their journey of whatever they may be going through.
