The day I walked into A Bridge to Recovery, my life consisted of stagnation and despair; my drinking had delivered me to a level of despondency and emotional and mental paralysis where little existed beyond my yearning for the next drink. I dreaded the future and feared the repercussions of my past. But, Bridge provided hope and opportunity for change. With kind and giving hearts, Bridge's staff helped me find my way a new way of life. Each staff member exhibited the highest degree of professionalism, understanding and guidance, while not forgetting a friend's smile, support and encouragement. With gracious thanks to Bridge, I now welcome each day, and look forward to the future and life's challenges, without the necessity of a drink.
