A Safe Haven of Trust in Sobriety

When I was a child trust was ruined by the physical and verbal abuse from my family. I don’t think I even really knew what it meant to trust someone. As I got older I started to let my barriers down and soon after I was let down again. When I would start to trust someone they would betray me. I lived my life by the “trust no one” rule. Most of the time it served me well, keeping me out of trouble and dangerous situations. But, there was also a good percentage of people that could have made a positive change in my life if I would have trusted them. Life got harder and harder, the physical and mental damage of drugs took a toll on me.

For 26 years I was hoping that I can crawl out of the void I’ve been living in, until I came to SOCD I can say with 100% honesty that SOCD’s staff and clients were easy to get along with. I knew this was my safe haven because it feels like you are living at home. The program director helped with my addictions, the fear that I carried inside, and also found the underlying issues that I struggled with. I now have 9 months of sobriety, the most I have ever had, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without SOCD.
