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 born and raised here in Jessamine County. My struggle began really early. I first started using drugs at 13, and then from 15 until just a little over a year ago was using every day.

I was in and out of jail, never really seeking help until I was mentally incapable of successfully doing anything for myself.

I spent nearly 20 years of my life in active addiction. A little over 6 years ago, I found myself at my lowest — my bottom. I was working as a nurse and was taking care of a lot of people who were just like me, but they weren’t hiding behind a career. This really compounded my self-loathing and made me feel like the biggest hypocrite ever. I lied to my family and friends and isolated myself from them. I cared for my patients while impaired. I hated myself and who I had become.
