I came to The River Source because of my addiction to alcohol. In being here I have learned so much about myself. I learned that I was unhappy with myself and angry with life for the loss of my mother, and tried to use alcohol to drown it out, and to hurt myself and others. I chose The River Source because it looked good and they took my insurance. I have called it “the Google search that saved my life”. My experience was excellent. The staff is amazing people I will never forget. The entire staff is so caring and helpful. I will say that The River Source is what you make of it. Just like the 12 steps, you only get out what you put in. The River Source helped me find my true self again. The Gavino that doesn’t need alcohol to “function”! The River Source has helped me reestablish my faith and connection with God. You have truly saved my life. I love my life and can’t wait to start living and helping others. No more self-seeking asshole. Now I want to help other alcoholics. I have some legal issues to go through when I get home, but those are in God’s hands and I have faith that everything will be ok. It’s time for me to accept God’s will and quit trying to run my own life. I am merely a vessel to carry out God’s will. I would whole heartedly recommend The River Source to anyone having problems with alcohol or drugs. Thank you for saving my life!!!! May God bless you all.
