Amber: From out of control to a full life
“My life was out of control. I was drinking a lot and using a lot of pills. I had been through St. Monica’s once before and didn’t think it would do anything for me, so I quit. But a friend convinced me to come back. I was ready. I stayed for about 6 months, and it was life changing. I became so strong. Now it’s 2 years later and I am in my own apartment and am completely sober. My life is full, and I have St. Monica’s to thank for that.”
