The "Someone" Project
I Was Someone . . . I Love Someone . . . I Saved Someone . . . I Hurt Someone . . .
We all have been affected by addiction in some way. Whether it is a coworker, a spouse, a child, a friend, a parent or even ourself – we each have a story to tell. When we speak out and share our experiences with alcoholism, drug addiction and mental health, we shed the stigma that’s preventing people suffering with addiction from coming out, having a conversation and, perhaps most importantly, seeking treatment.
I remember sitting in your office and at some point you would ask who I was. I’d usually fumble for an answer and come up with something short of meaningful. Today I describe myself as someone who is socially and environmentally aware and a good student, friend and son. Thank you for listening and not giving up on me.
I’m doing great and wanted you to know how much I appreciate your help! The first 2-3 months were rough, but now I can say I’m happier than I’ve been in a very long time.
Your staff never gives up. They believe in us until we believe in ourselves.
Today is my sixth month of sobriety. I thought drugs were the fix to all my health and random struggles. Thank you for helping me discover what I really needed. With your help know I can do it!
