I entered Shalom Center in January 2009. I’d been an addict for almost 20 years. Because of the choices I made through my addiction, I lost everything; jobs, house, friends, and eventually even my children. As my drug use escalated, so did my jail trips, even to the point of being sent to prison. I knew this isn’t how I wanted to spend the rest of my life, but I didn’t know where to turn, or even how to live a sober life. I only knew I couldn’t do it alone.
Shalom Center helped change everything. I began to learn that, through Christ and the amazing staff at the center, I didn’t have to do it alone. On Oct 3, 2013, God and I celebrated 5 years drug free!
I’ll forever be grateful for my time spent at Shalom, and for each and every person on staff or volunteers. God has restored as He promised! I can now be the mother, daughter, sister and friend that God is molding me to be. Thank you for all you do, and may God continue to bless this ministry.
