Molly H.

On Dec. 21, 2007 I hit an all time low I had never experienced before. I had lost my mind. I had lost my self respect. I had lost hope.
Upon stepping foot into Amicus House I was defiant, I was self reliant and I was stubborn.
I needed help.
My parents wouldn’t help me. My friends had all given up on me. I didn’t know how to NOT drink and use.
Amicus House gave me the tools I needed to rebuild my future. When I got here, I had no life. Amicus House was a safe place for me to live while I picked up the pieces of my broken life. I learned how to be employable. I learned how to be accountable. I learned about responsibility, dependability and working for things that I wanted. I wanted my own place to live. I planned for it. I worked towards it, and I made it happen.
I wanted to learn how to not drink and use drugs at the expense of everything and everyone else in my life. I went to meetings, I got a sponsor, I worked the steps, and my life got better.
I wanted to go back to the job of my dreams. I started at a coffee shop, then became a dishwasher, and now I own my own company.
My dreams are becoming a reality because I am sober today. I have goals, I work hard, I suit up and I show up, even when I don’t want to. I learned how to live my life without drinking and using at Amicus House.
Amicus House offered me every tool I needed to heal, to grow up, and to be a productive member of society. I owe my deepest gratitude to the staff of Amicus House who planted the seed of recovery in my heart. Thank you a million times over for helping me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for not giving up on me , talking to me when I needed a voice of reason, and allowing me to make my own choices. The patience that you all have and the love that you all have shown me makes ME want to be more like YOU. And for this, I am grateful.
