Voices of Discovery, Andrew - 335 Days
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
