Before I entered Changes, I was broken and hopeless. I was dying inside and couldn’t fathom another day not knowing where I was going to sleep, eat, get arrested. I would pray to God to take me out of my misery. I was only happy when I would see the blood rush back from the needle and always took a mental picture In case I would die and never be happy again. I have to live with the guilt of all the terrible things I did getting high and that’s where the needle took me. In a way, I am glad because my addiction led me to Changes.
Rob, you never judged me and only showed me love and compassion. Your program got me places I only dreamed of. Without your guidance I would not be in a music video, or signed by a modeling agency. You helped me and guided me and my dreams are coming true, I feel free for the first time in my life.
I have learned to love myself and today, I’m comfortable in my own skin, I don’t look down when I walk, I look people in the eye and hold my head high. I am not ashamed of who I am, you gave me my confidence and self-esteem back.
When I feel like I am going to give up, I think of you and how you believed in me and that gets me through one more day clean and sober.
I can’t thank you and your staff enough, but I know that all I learned at Changes I will apply to my life forever. That is a gift from you that I will always cherish.
