The Healing Place

Profiles of Recovery

I have heard if you want to hear God laugh tell him your plans. I had come to The Healing Place in April 2008 from Las Vegas with the plan of getting sober, regaining custody of my son, and heading back. I am still here so God must be laughing hysterically. There is just something about this place that makes you want to stick around! Every day is like spring with people coming back to life. I’m so grateful to still be here and be a part of the miracles all around!

On May 15, 2008, my 28th birthday, we did the groundbreaking for the new women’s campus. On that day, God let me know that getting sober was not just about me. I got to be involved in the build from the under-the-roof tour to being among the first group of women to live in the new building. It was so amazing moving everything and everyone in. Even more amazing was thinking we would never fill this place to being filled to capacity within months! Getting to see how many women this new building has helped is a gift that does not stop giving because they just keep coming and coming! This is just one blessing I have encountered in my time at The Healing Place and I definitely do not take it for granted!
