My name is Andrew, and I am an addict. Prior to Discovery house I was
destroying my life once more because I couldn't stop the use of drugs. I was in
too deep with bad, sick, and suffering people. I was in the business of dealing
with them so I could use for free. The people took my car I worked so hard to
get, manipulating me, and leaving me with a $30,000 dollar debt. I sold almost
all of my belongings, I was beaten down all alone feeling hopeless.
I thank God for the program at Discovery House out and all the support here in
Penticton that keeps it open. Discovery house got me out of the hell I was in
and is truly helping me to discover who I am, pointing me in the right direction.
I've recently reached a milestone of a year clean, and I'm living in a second
stage house. I'm currently trying to find and connect with a mother that I've
never met. We are working on goal setting and budgeting. I'm on step 7 of the
house steps. I'm not where I want to be in life, but Discovery house is helping
me get there.
I want to thank all the staff, the board of directors, and all the love and support
from the community for making all this possible for me and many more to
Andrew - 335 days in the house
