outl0strokewidth0 strokec2 Waking up on my floor, knowing that I had had a seizure,
and nobody was home but my baby. Knowing that she could have died and that I could have
hurt her somehow, or that I could have died, myself. I pretty much gave up my will to care
anymore. And I mean, I had no money, I had nothing.
I was isolating myself completely. I wouldn’92t talk to anyone. I had DHS banging on my door
and I didn’92t care. That didn’92t even phase me. It took almost death to get me here.
It’92s devastating. Because I’92ve always known I’92ve had a drinking problem. Like,
I partied since I was young. But knowing that I couldn’92t control it anymore and just
hit rock bottom was pretty sad and it was embarrassing. I was scared to tell my family,
my friends, and just not even really admit to myself that I needed some more help than
just going to counseling once a week. Before coming to The Raleigh ranch, my life
was a complete and total mess. I loved it out here and they pretty much had to kick
me out! I’92d say that when being out here at The
Ranch, the equine therapy was huge for me. Just having the horses there. They know more
about me than probably anyone in this whole facility does.
But, the therapists at The Raleigh House have been amazing, they’92re just incredible.
They actually do care. And I think having the isolation out here was huge, too. I know
some people are a little hesitant about it at first, but once you’92re out here, you
realize there’92s nothing to worry about. There’92s no cars flying by, you don’92t
have to go anywhere. It gets you into that mindset of letting everything go, seeing where
you do need to change and what you do need to focus on.
The staff here, they work really hard. They actually care about their clients, so it was
really nice that they came together and made us feel at home. The food, having [chefs]
there to help when you don’92t feel good, making something different for you. They’92re
always there to talk to. The therapists, no matter what, will turn their lives around
to make sure they’92re here to help, too. I definitely found a new family. Between the
staff and the other clients, they are amazing at making you feel at home. And throughout
all our struggles and holidays we had to go through here, they pulled together and showed
us that we can still be supportive of each other, and that this place is amazing and
that we all do love each other and love ourselves. It really is a home away from home.
Today, I am probably the happiest that I’92ve been in years. I’92ve got a job that I love,
I get to come out here, still, and be a part of these guys’92 recovery, which is huge
for me. It actually helps me stay sober, as well.
Thanks to The Raleigh House, I was able to get my sobriety and life back.
