“Prior to coming to Avenues 12, I was homeless, unemployed, in and out of jail, and estranged from my family. I had been in several treatment programs and detoxes, but had never fared well when I got out and was left to my own devices. Avenues 12 allowed me to build a foundation in recovery in a safe and loving environment. The houses became my home and the women surrounding me became my sisters in sobriety. I learned how to build and maintain healthy relationships, set boundaries, become accountable and responsible, and most importantly, grow up. I truly believe being at Avenues 12 saved my life. I now have a huge recovery network, relationships with my family, and excitement for the future.”
