I Was Searching For Freedom | Alumni Testimonial

Posted on

Hi, my name is Amber W. and I am a recovered alcoholic.

I did not ever think I would be able to say that. Before Origins, My life was full of misery and hopelessness. I could not stop drinking and using drugs. I could not manage my life. My relationships were non-existent. I had already been to a dozen other treatment centers and institutions but decided to give it one last ditch effort to get sober.

When I arrived at Origins I found out it was about a lot more than just being sober. I was searching for freedom. I was taught about a spiritual approach. Something I had not heard much about in the past treatment centers. I was taught about the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, the 12 Steps and the clear cut directions lined out in the book.

The staff at Origins truly care about you, care enough to tell you the truth and assist you on your journey to recovery. I was taught I needed to put in work and learn discipline as lined out in the book. I had to do what the people before me had done. I had to want, what they had, badly. I did not think it would work, but I was willing to try anything to gain this freedom they talked of.

Today, I sit here over 2 years free and sober. This is truly a miracle.

The Big Book gives us promises of actively working 12 Steps and my life today exceeds all those promises. Yes, I have got “stuff’ back in my life, but most importantly I feel peace and serenity for the first time in my entire life. Origins is different than all the other places. This place is truly a blessing. The staff is amazing!

I am very grateful I gave myself and my life the opportunity to go to Origins and listen to the staff to gain this freedom!!
