A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY: 

I had struggled with my alcoholism for 20+ years. I went through multiple bouts of sobriety and numerous outpatient treatment programs but nothing seemed to work for me long term. In 2014 I finally was brought to a place I consider my bottom. With no options left, and nowhere to turn, I accepted help from The Bridge and was accepted into their inpatient treatment program. I am not being hyperbolic when I say that The Bridge saved my life.

With the skills I learned in treatment, and the opportunity to accept responsibility for my actions up to that point in a safe setting, I was able to start building a strong foundation in sobriety. With a few one days at a time I was then able to rebuild my life. Today as I type these words I am coming up on 7 years of continuous sobriety. I get to strive for the dreams that the wife and I thought impossible just those few short years ago. The gratitude I have for The Bridge is endless. They really made all of this possible and I embrace any opportunity I have to give back what was so freely given to me.

Words can never do justice to what The Bridge has done for me. With that said I will simply say: Thank you! Benjamin
