I am an addict, my name is George. I grew up in a very loving, close, and nurturing family, but as I reached my teen years, I fell into a life style of drinking and using drugs. I found myself stuck in an endless cycle of addiction that progressed over the next thirty years. In turn, this cost me my self-respect, my family, and my freedom.
Then I found Clean & Sober. Since I have been here, I've found that I am able to find a spiritual connection with myself and my higher power. It's helping me with my coping skills, and for the first time in my life, I'm learning about living clean and sober. I am learning how to look at my life in a positive approach rather than negative. I owe that to this program and the people that I am surrounded by in this community. Clean & Sober has given me hope and a foundation to carry with me for the rest of my life.
