I want to thank you for the opportunity The H.O.W. Center provided me to reconstruct my life. When I arrived in November, 2006, I was in a state of complete hopelessness and despair when I left in October, 2007my life was back on track.
My depression and alcoholism brought me to the brink of suicide. The year of 2005 I was in the hospital 4 times, a treatment center for alcohol abuse, a 10 day stay in a halfway house, a DWI arrest, 2 car wrecks and a suicide attempt that resulted in a night in jail and a 5 day stay in a psychiatric facility. When I was released from the “psych” ward with no other options available to me, I reluctantly asked to be accepted into The H.O.W. Center. That decision changed the direction of my life. I realize now that this was God doing for me what I could not do for myself.
Now, just 1 year later, I am a functioning member of society once again. This would not have been possible without the help your facility provided. The structured environment enabled me to find work and initiate and maintain sobriety through the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. For this I am forever grateful.
I am no longer at The H.O.W. Center. I have been reunited with my wife and I am able to contribute to our life together. The days of self-pity and self-loathing are behind me. I owe all of this to a loving God and the opportunity provided by The H.O.W. Center.
God Bless You and Keep You Safe,
