We all have been affected by addiction in some way. Whether it is a coworker, a spouse, a child, a friend, a parent or even ourself – we each have a story to tell. When we speak out and share our experiences with alcoholism, drug addiction and mental health, we shed the stigma that’s preventing people suffering with addiction from coming out, having a conversation and, perhaps most importantly, seeking treatment.

Thank you for working with our daughter. We feel like we have our true daughter back, and that is priceless.
Your staff never gives up. They believe in us until we believe in ourselves.
For the rest of my life I’ll be in recovery – because just one slip can blow everything. The most important thing for me to remember is that despite the mistakes I’ve made, I am still a good person and have much to give. I stay clean because I wake up every day and promise myself that I won’t do drugs that day. Imagining not doing drugs ever again sounds too overwhelming, so I take it a day at a time.
I truly believe the tools I learned at Prelude saved my life and I am eternally grateful for that. For the first time in my life I can face life on life’s terms without the use of drugs and alcohol.
