“My name is Cory, and I am a recovered drug addict.
My upbringing was everything anyone could ever ask for as a child. My family was very loving, supportive and very involved. I was my own worst enemy. I had very low self-esteem and was always thinking about myself negatively, and instead of asking for help I resorted to alcohol and drugs. Soon after my dad’s passing, the guilt and shame inside of me were screaming loud. I finally had my breaking point when I didn’t want to live the lifestyle I had created, and I was angry, irritable and suicidal. Desperate for change, I finally reached out and asked for help. Next thing I knew I was on a plane headed towards New Hampshire.
“GATEHOUSE TAUGHT ME HOW TO MANAGE MY LIFE ON LIFE’S TERMS”
GateHouse taught me how to manage my life on life’s terms. Today, I don’t have to live with the fear, doubt, and all the insecurities that used to control me. I was given the tools to find true internal happiness as a client at GateHouse. By working and living the 12-steps, I was able to get rid of all the negative energy and turn it into something positive. I am so grateful to the GateHouse Sober Community for not only helping me with my substance abuse problem, but for helping me deal with myself. My life today is still a work in progress, but at least the dark days are behind me, and the future is bright as ever as long as I stay in the right here right now.”
