Coming down from a 4 year run on meth, alcohol and weed, having lost my job, my vehicles, my house, and most of all my family, I was hurt, sick, and my spirit had died … I came to the Empire and was greeted and welcomed with kindness and warmth. With the honesty, open-mindedness, and willingness, I have great clarity of the responsibility of my own life now. The greatest things are having my integrity and serenity back. I am very grateful to have gotten the help and the experience that has saved my life.
