"My life before treatment was a living hell. Gradually getting worse and worse. Not only was I ruining myself with needles, pills, liquor, etc. but I couldn't look myself in the mirror. I did not care if I was alive or dead. I attended Spearhead Lodge for 90 days and there I was met with other individuals who were suffering as well. I also learned a lot from my mentors who had recovered. In the future I think it is very possible that I enter into a recovery related field such as counseling in which I can give to others what was given to me."
