“First Step Home is an amazing program. I needed more than 30 days, more than six months – I needed something that was long term – a whole life change. I knew I was willing to do whatever that took.
It’s possible – even when you think it’s not – it really is possible to be sober, to be clean, to be happy.
I’m a completely different person now. Last year if you talked to me, I didn’t want to live, I didn’t want to be here, didn’t want to be clean. I just wanted to not exist. Now I want to live.”
