The Healing Place

Profiles of Recovery


My life was so unmanageable because of my drinking. I had lost my job of 17 years and I was lost in the grip of alcoholism. I got to the point where I did not want to live anymore and the only thing I could think of was my daughter and how her life would be if I killed myself. After coming out of a blackout, I got on the computer and typed in the word "recovery" and a place at 10th and Market came up.

The Healing Place gave me the opportunity to sit still in a safe, drug- and alcohol-free environment and work on myself by working the 12 Steps of recovery. I found that my life was worth living and started to see that there was hope to live again. By being at The Healing Place, I have gotten an A-1 education on addiction and I'm now helping others suffering from this disease. I have a new outlook on life and I want to dedicate my life to helping others in recovery full time.
