LETTER TO THE EDITOR - My Road to Recovery (16 April 2017)
the time I set out on my journey of recovery, my life had spiraled out
of control. My life changed dramatically as soon as I swallowed my pride
and reached out for help.
started using mind and mood altering substances to deal with my
obsessive-compulsive behaviors. In active addiction, life felt like
being on a roller coaster, and no matter what I did I couldn’t get off.
I finally entered Ambrosia Treatment Center the miracle of sobriety
began to happen. I found a clear and defined path to follow, helping me
be an accountable, responsible person again.
playing an active role in my 12-step fellowship, I learned that I must
turn my will and my life over to a power greater than myself to succeed.
For me, being able to share what I have learned with newcomers is the
best part of sobriety.
I still lean on others
for support and accountability – key to my
sobriety. If you’re struggling to overcome addiction and don’t know
where or who to turn to, I encourage you to seek help through Ambrosia’s
“We Do Recover” Movement, WeDoRecoverMovement.com
– it provides valuable support systems and tools for addicts, as well as those in recovery.
