Eye Opener – Darrell’s Story

Note: The identity of the person reflected in this story has been changed to protect anonymity.

“Before coming to HT, my life was unmanageable because of drugs and alcohol. Coming here has been an eye-opener for me. It has given me clarity and is helping me make choices and decisions without feeling like I have to rush the process. I love to visit the guys in detox, and always have them in the front of my mind. For me, it’s about remembering what it was like when I got to detox, and how hard it was to get through it. I had nowhere else to go.

My favorite part of the day is hanging out with the guys in front of the CTR 1 hall after classes have ended. We can let our hair down and have fun conversations, recreation, and laugh at ourselves.” – Darrell S., HT Participant
