The Healing Place

Profiles of Recovery


I wasted so many years of my life making poor choices and bad decisions. Everything I touched turned toxic. I heard about The Healing Place at a very critical part of my addiction on the streets of Chicago. When I came to The Healing Place, I had no idea what was wrong with me or what I wanted to do. All I know is that I woke up one day and decided that I didn't want to feel the way I felt at that time ever again.

The Healing Place gave me the will to live and prosper. I have totally changed my life and am a productive member of society. I have integrity and can look the world in the eye. I am now the detox coordinator at The Healing Place’s Women’s Campus and that is exactly where God intended me to be. My attitude will always be gratitude for The Healing Place.
