What brought me to The River Source was that I became completely dependent on Heroin and it quickly ruined me. I had gotten arrested and that suffering memory couldn’t even keep me from using. I needed more help so I finally gave up trying to get sober on my own and called The River Source for help. I chose The River Source because my sponsor kept pushing and pushing for me to come here for months. I had looked into other centers and didn’t want to just because I was being stubborn and didn’t want to do what she was telling me. However I am very glad that she did push me so hard to come here.

Being here has been an awesome experience. I’ve learned so much. I feel so much more confident in myself and I haven’t felt this happy in such a long time. I feel more alive. I almost wish I didn’t have to leave. I feel so safe and everyone here has been amazing including the staff. My life now is much calmer, happy and I feel free. I feel like I can function as before. I thought that I was functioning and I wasn’t.

I would recommend the river source 100%. It’s a great place and it helped me tremendously.
