I have returned to the best health in years. Bridge to Recovery isn’t just a rehabilitation of the body, but it offers rehabilitation of the soul, heart and mind. I want to thank the staff and board members for providing a place like Bridge to Recovery.
The first day at the Bridge was met with confusion. I had told a doctor I did not want a religious based facility. I had however, exactly come to one. God’s grace led me here through some misunderstandings. Barbara, the director, went over the rules of the house. The same thought kept playing over and over in my mind: “Why Am I Here?”. After my intake I went to a meeting. It took every ounce of energy and willpower to walk through the door. What happened next I will never be able to explain. I just felt a presence in the room, as if someone put a hand on my shoulder and released me. God brought Barbara and the Bridge into my life and I was saved from the path that would have destroyed or killed me.
I came in thinking I was gonna go through the motions and skate by and get my graduation certificate to please my family. That changed. I learned so much about myself and the disease of addiction. I have hope today and am feeling so much better. Thanks so much! I really want to live my life in recovery today! I’ve seen that I can
When I got to BTR I was a broken man with no faith and very little hope. The staff and my housemates have taught me how to live my life without being numb to drugs and alcohol. This program showed me I can find people just like me, some more broken than others. Today I do not have to use, my feelings will not be hijacked anymore, and I will not be categorized as a statistic anymore. The Bridge to Recovery saved my life.
