Rays of Hope

For the first time in my life, I truly believe that I have a chance at a life, free from drugs and alcohol. A life full of happiness and success and I owe all of this to ARTS.

I am so grateful every day for all the hope ARTS has given me.

ARTS has shown me that there is a better life out there. I don’t have to use drugs.

Today I have great relationships with all my kids and they are proud of me.

I am excited about what I have to offer life.

I feel so happy. I never want to throw my life away again.

I will be a survivor!

I am learning to love and trust myself, and I now realize that making mistakes is part of life.

Treatment at ARTS has helped me look at myself, understand my behaviors, and my unresolved issues. They have taught me how to be honest about my feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.

I feel better than I ever have. I can see a future full of the dreams I lost so long ago. It is a bright future!

I have learned to be honest about my past and that it doesn’t have control over my future.

My life has done a 180, all because I chose to do the hardest thing I could imagine…to change!

In treatment, I am saving my life every day.

My addiction was my life. Treatment has had a tremendous effect on me. It has been tough and still is, but I know it is worth it.

Treatment at ARTS has been one of the hardest things I have ever done, but worth it. It taught me a lot about myself. My behaviors stem from hurt and pain in my past, but once I opened up and talked about it, it no longer had a hold on me.

I have a life full of possibility and happiness. ARTS shed light onto a life that felt so dark and hopeless.

I am working through the trauma of my past and learning how to cope.

I’m grateful for ARTS. ARTS has shown me how to truly change, and has given me the tools to apply to my life.

I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for ARTS.

Today, in my life, I feel absolutely wonderful and I am so thankful for ARTS.

Treatment has taught me about myself, where I want to be, and where I don’t.

I am grateful that I have a chance to save my life.

I am molding myself into the person I want to be.
