The Future is Positive – Kristen’s Story

“Before coming to Healing Transitions, I drank 24 hours a day, seven days a week for about two years. I would drink so much that I would blackout multiple times each day. After a lot of prayer and online research of other recovery programs by my family, we found HT, and I’ve been here since the beginning of December.

Going through the program has been amazing. You don’t realize how much you’ve changed until you look back at where your life was beforehand. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been here for nine months! Working in the garden for three months was incredibly rewarding for me, and helped me as I processed my alcoholism and grief. It was very therapeutic. 

The biggest takeaway I’ve learned while being here is that addiction isn’t a moral failure. It’s a disease that I can put into remission through abstinence and working the recovery program. I feel incredibly positive about what the future holds, and can’t wait until I silver chip and get to return to the community as a person in recovery!” – Kristen B., HT Participant
