My life became unmanageable due to delusion, selfishness, and manipulation. What I thought was abuse of drug addiction & what brought me here are simply symptoms of my disease. The River Source staff and clients were a great help and still are. And when I first got here I was scared, confused, and in a bad state of mind. Day by day as I wallowed in self-pity, the people lifted my spirit and helped me begin to love myself again. I felt completely hopeless and as I listen, took suggestions, and started step work I began to see things differently. I am starting to believe that my higher power does love and forgive me. I am willing to follow suggestions. And ask for help and understand that this is a day by day process. Still frightened at times and hopeful at times. I’ve learned with the Big Book prayer, meditation, talking with others, and moving forward with the 12-step program will improve myself worth and the life that my higher power has given me. The River Source and its staff are truly a gift from God and I will be forever grateful. I’m at times still overwhelmed, but I know now I don’t have to do this and will not do it alone. Thank you!
