Hope Harnessed

“My family is pretty normal, middle-class, and my parents are still married. But, I started drinking consistently when I was 12 because I was always isolated and picked on a lot. Then
it moved into drug use and stealing from my parents and sisters. In the height of my active addiction, nothing would have stopped me from using heroin. My family pushed me away because they didn’t know what else to do. By this point in my life, the constant craving of drugs skewed my addicted mind and I didn’t care if I lived or died.

A couple years ago I was dropped off at the Hope Center and stayed at the Emergency Shelter for a little over a week. Having been homeless, this was what I needed. Then, I got into the Recovery Program for Men.


‘At the Hope Center, I learned the skills to be in recovery and not be dependent on heroin.’ 

After making amends, every day a little more trust comes back. I don’t ask much of my family and they don’t question my motives anymore. I have two young sons and I’m in college working toward a degree in drug and alcohol counseling. I now have hope thanks to the Hope Center.”
