Before coming to The Recovery Ranch two and half years ago I was looking at 5 years in prison and not seeing my daughter and my family for a long long time. I had been in active addiction for about 20 years which caused me to lose a 24 year career in construction, legal and health issues and worst of all I walked out on my family for drugs.
I came into The Ranch with a two year court commitment and looking back now that was the best thing that could of ever happened to me. They pointed out to me things I needed to change in my life. It's is a hard program but only because I didn't want to or thought I needed to to change certain things. Which is why all the other alcohol treatment programs never worked and I kept relapsing.
Now as a graduate, I live life to the fullest. My two year court commitment is gone, my daughter and my family are back in my life and I have chosen to stay and manage here. The relationships I have today as well as the accountability are the the reasons I am and remain sober. I owe The Ranch so much and words can express the gratitude I have for saving my life.
