I think deep down I knew all along that I wasn’t a bad person in my heart. I just needed someone to tell me that I’m strong and good and worth loving—and Phoenix House told me that. Because they believed in me, I started believing in myself.
“My family and I cannot thank the Phoenix House Academy enough for the months of services that they provided to our son—they literally saved his life.”
“At 16, I got so hooked on meth that all I wanted to do was stay home at get high. Phoenix House helped me find the desire to get sober. I knew I had what a lot of people don’t have–and that was hope.”
“I thought that if I stopped using, I’d never be happy again. But after awhile, I started to realize that people can be happy in recovery. Today, my life is amazing. For once, I can relax and be at peace.”
“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.”
