Amy: 'Clean and sober, happy and hopeful'

I was an IV drug user. If I wouldn’t have entered the arms of St. Monica’s, I surely would have continued on a road to destruction. You taught me that there are many ways to express myself without hurting myself or others.

 My greatest memory from St. Monica’s is of being reunited with my mother. She is now part of my life again and one of my biggest supporters. I now have a relationship with family and friends who at one time did not trust me. I am clean and sober, happy and hopeful. And I am now a productive member of society. I want to tell you that I appreciate all you did for me throughout my stay at St. Monica’s.”
