Dear Tim,

I consider my decision to live at Healing Properties a turning point in my life. It is one of the few good decisions I have made up to this point in my life. Up to that point, I have lead an extremely selfish, self centered life. Even before I started using, my only concern was for my own wellbeing and happiness. I started drinking and using at an early age, and as my disease progressed I caused nothing but pain, suffering and harm to my friends, family and those around me. My drinking and using had gone from a social luxury to a daily necessity. Where I initially thought drugs were my solution to life’s problems, they soon became the cause of all my problems. My thought and actions, my whole life was about getting high. I hated my life, I hated myself, but I could not see that drugs and alcohol were not making things better. I could not stop.

After being kicked out of college, I fled home to my parents’ house, and proceeded to drink and drug into oblivion. I had alienated all my friends, and my family was tired of cleaning up after me. I was alone. Finally my parents told me they had had enough; that they loved me but could not continue to enable me. Unless I was sober, they I was not welcome I their lives. I was coerced into rehab, and while there I decided to go to a halfway house upon being discharged.

I am so thankful I chose to go to Healing Properties. I really don’t have the words to fully express my gratitude. The 12 months I spent there were truly life changing, and I will always cherish them. In this structured environment, I learned for the first time in my life how to be responsible, accountable and honest. This was not a fast or painless process. Most Importantly I was introduced the 12 step program of Alcoholics Anonymous, I learned how to deal with the trials and tribulations of life without drinking or using. I learned how to be a productive, accountable and trustworthy member of society. This something I regard as miraculous, something I thought was impossible before coming to Healing Properties.

Furthermore, I was blown away by earnest care for my wellbeing shown by my roommates, house seniors, and the property manager and of courses you. I have made some of my closest friends here. Through Healing Properties and Alcoholics Anonymous, I was given the gift of a new serene outlook on life.

I feel as though I have been given my life back, and I shudder to think where I would be had I not come to Healing Properties. Thank you so much for all you have done for me, and for your continued commitment and dedication to help other alcoholics and addicts.

Sincerely,

David C
