Before I came to the Ranch, I had wasted every opportunity that was handed to me and made drugs more important than anything else. I lied to everyone who cared about me and manipulated anyone who was willing to help me. Today, after nearly two years sober at the Ranch, I have meaning and purpose in my life again. I have a full time job and I get to help other addicts and alcoholics walk through the same struggles that got me to where I am in my life today. I am happy and GRATEFUL for my life for the first time in years. And I didn't gain this by talking to a therapist about my feelings, I didn't gain this by relaxing at a rehab facility, I gained this through being talking to with Brutal Honesty, by growing up and taking ownership in my own life. If you want to take a short break from your addiction, go to Alcohol rehab. If you want to change and actually start living your life, come to the Ranch.
