"I have been in and out of trouble since I was 18 years old, struggling with an addiction I didn't realize I had. In February of 2022 I failed a drug screen for my state probation officer and was violated. I managed to avoid arrest for a month and a half but was finally arrested at my home in front of my wife, kids, and parents. That brought me to my knees in shame.
A week later my dad passed away while I was in jail. After 100 days of jail the Judge offered me an 8 year sentence or complete a one year stay in a drug and alcohol program. I picked Safe Harbor of Erin.
The first two weeks were the worst but staff and clients alike talked me through it and I stayed. It turned out to be the best decision I ever made. This program has taught me so much that I never even knew about, a whole new way to look at life. It has helped me strengthen my relationship with the Lord. Without the pastoral support, the daily classes, and IOP classes I would have never made it to where my heart, mind, and soul is today."
