The Healing Place

Profiles of Recovery

Michael

I came to The Healing Place out of fear. I was serving time for non-support at C.C.C. (Community Corrections Center). I was a work-release inmate who had no job, but was able to go out and look for one. One day as I was out looking for work, I made a decision to use. I never made it back. When I made it to detox, I was full of fear. I didn't want to go back to have to go back to jail, but I didn't want to stop drinking and using either so I decided to hide at The Healing Place and plan my next move. Thank God that I did, because I heard something that changed my life. I was introduced to the program of Alcoholics Anonymous and my life hasn't been the same.

The Healing Place has given me structure in my life because I never had any. I was taught how to show up for jobs or any other commitments at least 20 to 30 minutes early. The Healing Place has taught me to be a better employee, a better supervisor, and a better person. Today, to the best of my ability, I am a person of integrity. If I say I will do something, I will do it and if I can't, I am considerate enough to call and let a person know. Thank you THP!
