At Phoenix House I learned to see the consequences of my addiction. I would rather be clean and sober than deal with the negativity of getting high and the trouble it causes. I hold myself accountable for my own actions.
“I was living on the streets and sleeping on the train. One day, I woke up and thought, ‘There’s got to be more to life than this!’ Phoenix House taught me how to change from within.”
“The worst part of my addiction was when I was homeless; my family didn’t want anything to do with me. Phoenix House gave me a sense of purpose that I didn’t have before.”
“At Phoenix House, I finally had people who wouldn’t let me manipulate my way out of every situation. I completed treatment and I’ve never looked back.”
“If it wasn’t for Phoenix House, I’d probably be dead right now. They taught me that it’s OK to ask for help. Most importantly, I learned how to take care of myself—and that you can be sober and still have fun.”
