I would be in a dark place without my treatment experience. I was a student at [program name redacted] and it changed my life for the better.
I was living in my parent's house, bouncing from job to job, and not caring about being self-sufficient. When I was told about an opportunity for help I decided I wanted to go so I could better my life.
It wasn't easy, but when is change ever easy? After a lot of hard work, and help from some great people, I am now working a job I love and living on my own for the first time in my life. I only wish it had happened sooner.
