“My name is Kurt A., and the Last Door saved my life. I am writing this as a testimonial to the amazing experience I had in the four months that I spent there. It is safe to say that I thought I would be the last person who would need to go to treatment a few short years ago. I tell people that I was the kid that when a police officer came to his school and said, “Don’t do drugs”, I said, “OK.” I have never had more than a beer’s worth of alcohol in my life, never tried any drugs, and not even had a puff on a cigarette. My addiction was video games. I have been playing games since I was about five years old, but it wasn’t until I was 17 and started experiencing severe depression that my hobby became a crutch to deal with my unbearable feelings.”

Please read more of Kurt’s incredible story of recovery from Video Game Addiction at Last Door.

Clients are going to enjoy the bounty of organic vegetables as part of this year`s menu thanks to the beginnings of Last Door`s Horticultural Program at Keystone. Here`s a sneak peak……”at a Keystone Gothic”… a portrait of plants, shovels and laughter. Planting the first vegetable garden at Keystone is an effort on our part to produce more of our own food and involve the recovery community in building sustainability for the next generation. Our very own Executive Director David Pavlus, Counsellor/ Heavy Equipment Operator spent three weeks preparing the site, moving huge boulders and organic soil to create the planting space. Thank you David and everyone else who helped and supported this green project.
