Date: July 16th 2019

I grew up in a family with secrets and dysfunction. Life has not been normal for me from as far back as I can remember. Too many childhood memories of trauma, confusion, loneliness and despair to count. Although therapy, self-help books and support from others has contributed so much to my self-care and healing, this 12-step program helps me where I am powerless, life is unmanageable, and I need to take accountability and responsibility for my life.

It is a highly emotional yet deeply spiritual experience for me working the program. As the hard realities and truth come in, I am always left feeling more certain and confident that I am gaining more strength and building a real foundation for myself. I am deeply grateful and humbled all at once. The stories shared and literature provided are simple yet impactful and life changing.
