1400+ lives restored with Revive’s help

CRUZ

Before coming to Revive, life had become unbearable with little hope of it ever getting better. After years of IV drug use, I had become miserable in my own skin and had pushed away everyone who ever truly loved me. I had been in and out of treatment since I was old enough to attend. I had lost all hope and had settled into the fact that I was always going to be a drug addict. I was sitting in Montgomery Co Jail when a bed opened up at Revive Life House, and on July 13, 2018, I walked into my 8th treatment center.

This program has changed my life from the day I came in. I was pretty nervous when I came through the door. I had been through multiple treatment centers and just wasn’t getting it. And from the time–the peace that I could feel when I came through the door here–was just amazing. The staff–they love you back to life and with me, I was ready for a better life and that’s what I have now and I’m thankful for that.

In December of 2016, I had just committed a first-degree armed robbery. I was at the lowest part of my addiction, so I ran from these charges for two years with depression, anxiety, paranoia, and fear in every thought I had. In 2018, tired of running, I turned myself in for these charges. Seeing the video of how messed up I was during the robbery is what made me ask the judge for treatment. Revive was the only place I wanted to go.

Life started well for me; I come from a good home with loving parents. Despite this, I always felt like I was entitled to more than I had been gifted. This desire for more drove me to compare myself against others constantly. Once my brothers moved out, I felt abandoned. I started to search for people who could always hang out. I now see how codependent I was, which led me to try to fit in with all the wrong people. I turned to drugs and alcohol to fit in, and before long, I would use every chance I got.
