Troy’s Addiction Recovery Success Story
Before coming to the Last Door my life was an incomplete and utter ruin. I couldn’t hold a job for more than a couple months. I was no longer invited to any family functions. My Parents were screening my calls and my wife was ready to have me leave. I hated myself, to say the least, and had almost given up on life. It was hard to admit but I knew that my addiction had made my life unmanageable. But I couldn’t admit to myself that I was powerless over my addiction.
Finally, in complete desperation I contacted Conner at the Last Door. I arrived beaten down by addiction but was greeted by a large “family” of councilors and fellow addicts with one mutual goal… to help each other get back up and become productive members of society. It never occurred to me how much I needed the friendship and Love I received from everyone at the Door. Not only did I learn how to control my addiction, but I was also taught so much more about overcoming so many of my defects of character.
Now at 19 months clean, I have a wonderful loving marriage and I talk to my family several times a week. I have respect from my peers and a good solid foundation of honesty and openness in my recovery. Now I’m becoming the man, husband, son, and friend I have always wanted to be, and I have learned to love myself again. Sharing my story and participating in Service work to give back to the recovery community is a huge part of my recovery journey. Thank you to all the good people at Last Door enough for the life they have taught me to live and for my success story in addiction recovery.
