Drugs and alcohol ruled me for the better part of my adult life. I was a slave to drugs and alcohol, these substances dictated what I did with my life. Everything I loved and enjoyed faded away till I was alone and depressed everyday. I tried everything I could think of to get off these substances and every attempt failed miserably.
When I found Oak Forest Recovery I knew I was not alone in this fight. RJ provided me with the tools and skills necessary to live a sober life and enjoy life again. For the longest time I thought I could not have fun sober. As soon as I moved in to oak forest I realized very quickly that you can have fun in sobriety and not just “fun” but have the time of your life while actively participating in your recovery. This house allowed me to build up my sober network of life long friends and get my life back on track.
I cannot thank RJ and Jerry enough for helping me get and stay sober and not just get my life back but have a better life than i ever thought was possible. When I moved in to Oak Forest i was in a state of incomprehensible demoralization. I had lost everything that I every loved in my life.
My family wanted nothing to do with me, lost my job, I was in debt and I had no idea how to live life. Through a lot of self searching and the help of the amazing Oak Forest Recovery team I am now talking with my family again on their terms, I have an amazing job that I would never of found without this program and I am still working on paying off my debt, but I have a good plan for how I will accomplish that.
I feel like I have my life back again and this life is a life I never thought I would or could ever have.
