Life had beaten me down pretty well over the past few years. My chemical dependency, coupled with severe depression had brought me to a place that I could not see a way out of, on my own. Over the past decade or so, I have lived in 3 different half way/sober houses, and not lasted, nor wanted to remain in any longer than a couple of days to a couple of weeks. Upon arriving at The Power House, I was immediately struck by the positivity and upbeat attitudes of those that lived there. From the general manager to the house managers to the collection of residents, those with under and over 30 days, everyone seems committed to the ultimate goal of remaining sober, while at the same time helping each other to achieve the same. I like that, I need that. Not having any sobriety, a vehicle, a job, many friends, or much money did not seem to be an issue for my admittance to The Power House, as long as I had the motivation to change these circumstances, which I did.
Today, my life has done an 180-degree turn. I have found a whole new circle of committed sober good men to help me get on and stay on track. I have found a good job, I sleep well at night, I eat well, and I have a smile on my face again. I still have a long way to go in this process, as it’s a life long journey, but I feel without the help the Power House has given me, I would not be where I am today.
Thank you, Power House!! Alex N.
