A Sense of Hope – Alumni Testimonial

Oct 29, 2020

Jennifer H. – Hannah’s House Alumnus

I’ll never forget that January day when I walked through the doors at Hannah’s House.

I was completely broken.

I honestly didn’t think I could be one of those people with long term sobriety. I was treated with dignity and respect. Just being treated like a human being was all I needed to feel comfortable.

They taught me that I was a sick person trying to get well, not a bad person trying to get good.

I made a decision to listen to every counselor because I had nothing to lose. I was a chronic relapser and didn’t know it was possible to stay clean and sober and be happy.

I understood that I had a lot of trauma I needed to work through. Hannah’s House helped me address those issues with EMDR.

Rather quickly, I learned that Hannah’s House was serious about the 12 Steps. This was my 4th treatment center, and none of the others taught the importance of these Steps. It was the absolute best treatment I’ve ever had.

The counselors and staff were absolutely amazing and genuinely cared.

Family week helped my husband come to terms with this being a disease. I took the advice of my Alumni Care Coordinator and came home and did exactly what I did there. In a couple of months, I will have a year sober. I feel hopeful that I can maintain my sobriety.

I owe my life to Hannah’s House and will be forever grateful.
