Fighting an opiate addiction was the most challenging task of my life, no doubt. Pills were my poison. The recovery from difficult medical conditions and addiction put me on a long, dark road before I got better. I’ve had multiple family losses, trauma, and depression during my recovery. I was suffering terribly and struggling with many issues. I wanted to stay close to my clinicians, outpatient programs, and Alumni team. I needed it.

In the beginning, I suffered from hopelessness, pain, and emotional issues that seemed they would never end. After a long fight with continuous support along the way from doctors, clinicians, Mountainside Virtual Support, and the Alumni team, they never left my side. Recently, I have been greatly improving. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Struggles are manageable, and everything is much, much better. It really did get better as I was told it would. I am overwhelmed with the love and support I have gotten from staff and the others in support groups. I have learned so much. Thank you to all of you.
