Beneficiary of the Month
I was bouncing from Job to Job. I could not even hold down a job for anytime at all, due to my drinking. One day I woke up in the E.R. after my last binge, and knew that I was close to death. I had no place to go after my stay in the E.R. and honestly was hoping that The Salvation Army's Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) would let me into the program. When I arrived at the ARC the first month was a real struggle emotionally, physically, and spiritually to stay in the program. I had thought about leaving a few times, but struggled with my patience and myself to stay.
Now I am working my work therapy at the front desk, and love meeting the people that come into the center. There is such a vast variety of people that come through the doors, that no two days are the same. I have reconnected my faith and communication my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ since my stay here, and I am also rebuilding my relationship with my loving wife of 36 years.
Upon graduating the program, I look forward to finding an enjoyable job near my home, and continuing building my life/relationships with my family and God.
