Before I came to The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center, Alcohol had totally taken over my life. I lost so much to this disease and had lost all hope for the future. With a complete turnaround in my life, the program here at the ARC has allowed me to rekindle my relationship with the Lord and given me a sense of self-worth. I am very grateful for the loving kindness of everyone that has helped me in this recovery transformation.
I have spent my work therapy in the kitchen doing what I love. Feeding everyone who has been working so hard every day is a real satisfying feeling. I feel that this is a form of work service in "my" program. When they announced that I was the Beneficiary of the Month, I was humbly surprised to receive such a reward doing what I love.
I have been so blessed by my loving supportive wife for 15 years. She has been my rock through a lot of turmoil. I look forward to living the rest of my days a sober man with a little hunting, fishing, and golfing on the side.
