I found myself walking to a train station to commit suicide. I could not deal with the pain and cycle of addiction that I couldn’t break, but that’s when I found Life of Purpose.
I came to Florida in 2013 to try and get sober. Five years later after multiple treatments, therapists and detoxes I found myself walking to a train station to commit suicide. I could not deal with the pain and cycle of addiction that I couldn’t break. I had been through Life of Purpose once already and decided that I did not want to continue doing what I was told to do in order to stay sober. Once again, I gambled away everything I had, hurt my family, burnt every bridge, lost my job and suicidal I made a call to Sarah and Lissa with hopes to make it back to Life of Purpose. They went above and beyond to get me back in while at the same time comforting me and assuring me that someone still loved me. I went through the program again having Staci as my therapist who I credit in helping to save my life. I was inpatient for two months, IOP for six months and still stay in contact with staff, staying connected. Summarizing what Life of Purpose has done for my family and I in one page would be impossible. Most importantly, I have my family back, I have my dream job, and I can genuinely laugh and be happy today. I am crying while writing this because I never thought I would get to the point of being able to say things like this. It did not seem possible. Life of Purpose is more than a treatment facility/program to me. They are my family.
