“Thank you so much for helping me see what has always been right in front of me and that’s a glimmer of hope. I feel like my life has turned for the better and couldn’t have done it without you.”

You work at your recovery daily. And I believe that I will continue at recovery for the rest of my life.

I was lost in addiction. It affected my family greatly. I had lost my children and lost the ability to have any sort of functioning connections with my family. They kind of had to cut ties with me until I was willing to get help. I felt like I had lost myself and lost my family. That motivated me to get help for meth addiction. I got the opportunity to enter into a drug court program which brought me into treatment with Rimrock.

Rimrock was there for me for the first two years of my recovery and gave me the life skills that I needed and the emotional coping skills that I needed to live a productive life. During my recovery, I worked closely with a counselor that helped me see my worth and my value. Recovery has affected my family greatly. The most difficult part of my treatment journey was letting go of shame and believing that I was worth recovering. I’m so glad I didn’t give up on myself. Now I have my children back in my life and I get to be a part of my family again.

I am a Peer Support Specialist for Rimrock and without my experience in addiction, I don’t think I could effectively do that job. I also sit on the Board of Directors for a non-profit organization that helps homeless addicts get integrated into recovery. My recovery helps lay the path for how I help other new addicts and alcoholics in recovery. I believe Rimrock has the best staff and meets each person’s needs individually. It was always a goal of mine to come back and work for Rimrock and I’ve gotten to do that.

A long-term recovery program provides the support you need through your first two years of recovery. That’s huge because learning to live life again after losing your life to addiction can feel like its impossible. I know that entering treatment can be terrifying, but just take one step and continue to put one foot in front of the other. Recovery is fragile and it takes daily work. You work at your recovery daily. And I believe that I will continue at recovery for the rest of my life.

For me, Rimrock is Recovery.
