I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the help and support that you all provided me during my six month stay. After bouncing in and out of rehab centers for almost two years, getting a divorce and losing my house I was forced to look at another alternative. I checked into the Caron Foundation up in Pennsylvania. After their recommendation, I realized that I needed to look into a sober living environment. Honestly, I was not willing to look for one in the Philadelphia area as I had heard nothing but horror stories. After deciding I would move to Delray Beach, because of its strong recovery oriented community, it was just a matter of picking the facility. I spoke to quite a few over the phone and Recovery Boot Camp/Healing Properties seemed to rise above them. You provided a professional yet compassionate approach. So, my decision was easy.
Upon my arrival, I found all of the support staff, from my housemates, to house seniors up to your self to be genuinely concerned about how seriously I approached my recovery. My experience here was nothing short of amazing. I have not only been given a relationship with my family back. I have made some of the closest friends I have ever had in my life, and most importantly, I can have a relationship with my higher power. I have learned, through the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, that there is a better way of living. Not just by not drinking one day at a time, but by living differently. By doing the work, as outlined in the Big Book, my thought process has changed the way I look at the world and how I react to it. Of course, as you know, I have had my trials and tribulations, but that was just another great learning experience. God willing, I will be celebrating my one year anniversary in a few weeks. I honestly do not know whether I would have made it far without all of your support and guidance.
Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope everyone that needs it can find the solution that I have found.
