Success Story – Promises Austin Saved My Life.
“I went to other rehabs, all four-month rehabs, but still had that reservation that when I got out I still had to do a hit. One day, I got a hold of bad crack for the fist time and it sent me to the hospital. I had heart failure, kidney failure, liver failure, and adrenal gland failure. I was in the hospital for six months with only a two per cent chance of living. The doctors said if I did one more hit I would die. One of my sisters knew Dr. Jason Powers and she called him to help, saying that I was begging for help. I knew doing another hit meant going to my funeral. Instead, I went to Promises Austin for two months.
“Promises Austin saved my life. I would put the staff and help I got there up against any rehab center in the country. It really is a luxury rehab center with the chefs, staff, and atmosphere. My sister has gone to 18 drug rehab centers. I also sent her to Promises Austin and now she’s clean. It’s a place like no other and I urge people who have hit bottom and are ready to change their lives, to go to Promises Austin. Ninety percent of the staff has been through recovery so they get you and understand where you’re coming from. I knew I was ready to make a drastic change with no reservations and I was willing to go to any length to save my life, to have a second chance. Now, I’m present at everything and have such clarity every day. The staff members truly want to help you change your life. They show you that you can have fun in sobriety and that the possibilities are endless once you get off addiction. They teach you that you have to change the way you think about life.
“I now know that, no matter what bad things happen to me, a hit will only make it worse. I’m close to God and I can do anything in this world, which is a feeling I’ve never achieved before in my life. I go to meetings everyday to see a great group of people. I work with and sponsor others. I put in the work, but Promises Austin gave me the tools and the people to make the biggest difference. I encourage anyone: if you think you have a problem, don’t walk, but run to Promises Austin. How many people have to die before you wake up and think this is not the way to live?
“I made a commitment to change my life and I got everything and more. Now I’m waiting so I can go work there because I’m committed to making a difference in another person’s life. Promises Austin saved my life and now I’m going back to save someone else’s life."
