Scott V. – November 2012

I came to The River Source because of my addiction to heroin and other opiates. Also, I had an extreme dependence on Marijuana that I did not want to give up until my counselor and life coach shed some light on my situation. My parents found out about my heroin addiction and found The River Source online. At the time, I thought my life was coming to an end but I later realized that I was being offered a new beginning. My experience at River Source has been an extremely positive one that I will never forget. They showed me that a sober lifestyle actually exists. I learned that I was powerless over drugs and that I had to surrender to my inner most self before I could have a spiritual experience. I learned how to have a relationship with God and if I prayed for the knowledge of his will for me and not what I wanted, I could have that experience. My outlook on life and my attitude is more positive than it has ever been. I would absolutely recommend The River Source to anyone struggling with the disease of addiction. I will be forever grateful to the staff and everyone involved for helping me to change my life through my higher power.
