Thank you Ruth's Way for helping me to understand the pain and suffering that my brother has gone through as an alcoholic. I always knew that he was a good man making bad choices. Now I understand why he didn't act like one. The Addiction and Recovery classes helped me to be more empathetic.
My coach was a tremendous help. She empowered me by helping me to look within. For the first time in years I was making my own decisions. I choose my pathway of recovery from abuse, neglect, and self doubt. Through this coaching experience I realized that I am not a victim but a survivor. My healing process has helped me to end a nine year co-dependent relationship.
When my daughter relapsed we did not know what to do. We had been through this process so many times and thought that she would never recover from years of alcohol and drug abuse. We were so happy that she chose Ruth's Way for Women because of their structure and accountability. They helped to teach her to be responsible again. Because of the support and encouragement that she received there she is now becoming the woman that we once knew she could be. She is part of our family again, is back in school, working part time, and is very active in her recovery. Thank you for all that you do ladies.
