On March 23, 2013 I overdosed on heroin.
I got arrested and spent almost a year in prison. I got out on February 10, 2014 and found that what little life I had was gone.
I lived in Carrollton, KY and I couldn't even get anyone to come and pick me up. They took me to a homeless shelter in Jeffersonville, IN and the best idea I could come up with was to get drunk. For some reason I stopped myself. What I would usually do is go to jail, get out, do the same thing, and go back -- then repeat the cycle. I knew that if I kept doing the same thing, I'd keep getting the same results. I'd heard about The Healing Place so I figured I would give it a try... and I haven't looked back.
The Healing Place has helped me SO much. It has helped show me that life IS more than just about Steve. When I came here, the world revolved around me. Now I can see that that's far from the truth. With the friends I've made at The Healing Place, I am more confident than I've been my whole life. I walk with my head held high!
