I learned to be an honest man, and I found my core issues in life...

I am 35 years old and my sobriety date is January 3, 2013. When I went into the Haven, I had no future, I was lost and I had no sense of direction in my life. Living in the Haven I was introduced to AA, I learned to be an honest man, and I found my core issues in life. I struggled to find out who I really was, and what my purpose in life was. Upon graduating after 84 days I moved into transitional housing for 16 months. From there I was able to get the first real job that i have ever had in my entire life, and I currently am still working for the same company today. I have never had a driver's license in my entire life until April 2015.

I am still growing and learning new things about myself daily thanks to the tools that I have acquired through the Haven about coping with my addiction. As a result of my sobriety I have completed my twelve steps, I am a sponsor for other people, and I am a functioning member of society.
