I came to The River Source because of my inability to stop drinking. I had a seizure due to withdrawal while attending graduate school. I knew I could no longer live the way I did. My counselor over summer before graduate school recommended me to The River Source. She happens to me my counselor a The River Source, Kim Miller. I did not know coming here would not only offer me a solution to stop drinking, but a new way of life. I was able to recognize my own self investigation of my addiction always led me to failure/relapse. I really dug into my inner most self, to face truths I didn’t address for years. The River Source helped me to see that I’m not alone, that I am a sick person trying to get will. The fellowship allowed me to make true genuine friends. I felt a sincere presence with my higher power that I hadn’t experienced before. I always believed in god but lost the connection while growing up. Life for me now is knowing that if I put my faith in God, and always continue with the program; I can save myself and help other people. I already feel more moments of serenity and peace. I would recommend this facility to anyone still suffering. I really loved Tabitha’s feedback during my step one. She told me if I held back my feelings that I would kill myself. She doesn’t know how much that meant to me, she had me in her hand with the blatant truth. I received the guidance, one addict to another.
