Today I have hope - Debra's Story

August 8, 2018

“My life was centered around drugs. The getting and using consumed every waking moment. I was abused daily, and I didn’t believe that this world had anything positive to offer. I was beyond hopeless. I was scared, angry and alone. I didn’t come to St. Monica’s by choice, but it was the best thing that has ever happened to me.


“At St. Monica’s, I learned that it was okay to be me, that I was a good person making poor choices, and that I had the power to change. I worked on my parenting, I became financially responsible, and I listened. I listened to the women who had come before me and were making it.


“Today, I have hope. Life is not about drugs, it’s about doing the next right thing. St. Monica’s was exactly what I needed when I needed it. I am now enjoying life with my daughter, who is doing great!”


Debra completed treatment in St. Monica’s Project Mother and Child program. She has a family and holds a full-time middle management position. She has been sober for five years.
