Hi, my name is Elizabeth. For the last twelve years of my life I have struggled with the disease and the sickness of addiction ruling my life. I tried so many times, so many ways to get clean. Program after program, jail, prison, and overdoses became all I knew. The only topic of a conversation was crime, drugs or sex when talking to me. The last eight years were the most difficult in my addiction. I can’t even recall all the sick things I began to do just to feed my drug addiction, I can’t count how many times I have hurt my mom and dad, I was so blind and lost from reality and from the people that only care and wanted to help. Now, today, I can finally see. I have found a place of peace in my mind and joy in my heart and I found it in God. Today, I know the true meaning of life and I care about keeping it. Today, I can carry a meaningful conversation and know that the people in my life are not here to harm me. Being at New Entra Casa, I am around people who are supportive in my recovery and that have helped me grow into the person I am today. They have given me tools to stay clean and sober day-to-day. I no longer have the thoughts of crime running my mind, I no longer cuss and I no longer need or want drugs. Today, I am free and I thank God every day that He saved me. Thank you and God bless you!
