In my futureless past I dedicated my life to drugs, destruction and wrongdoings. I was convinced that there was nothing left for me in life besides living on the streets and withering away with each drug I put in my body. Words cannot explain how grateful I am now that I have pulled myself out of that hell of a life. Although I had to completely run myself in to the ground to do something about it, that moment finally came. Coming through the doors of South Orange County Detox and Treatment saved my life, LITERALLY. I took too many pills and they had to rush me to the hospital to get my stomach pumped. If I would have chosen to go anywhere else, I would be dead. Realizing that I was now in a safe place surrounded by love, support, and motivation, I made the decision to listen to what they had to say. Some of it was hard to accept but I dedicated myself trying the suggestions given to me. Without a full surrender you cannot fully dedicate yourself to anything. South Orange County Detox and Treatment has saved my life and given me a new purpose to help others gain the very tools that were taught to me, as well as being dedicated to my recovery program. I used to think that people who would say these things were crazy, until they all started coming true. It is possible to change your life no matter how hopeless, broken, or beaten down you may be. It’s all a matter of dedicating yourself to something greater than yourself and, in my case, a mentor. It’s never too late to change.
