Hello my name is Kelly and I would like to speak as far as my story. I am grown now, ?but I am willing to share a piece of my world.??Well here goes drugs & alcohol were definitely a major part in my life.

I have used drugs and later on in life.? Went through different times trying to get clean and it is so hard. ?I fell down into a major drug ring and I lossed everything but I just kept my head up above water. I was homeless and I also lost my child because of my using. My first drug was weed just to cope-then crack cocaine, then after my mom past then alcohol I was totally messed up i was feeling hopeless.

So I went to a meeting and ?I felt good about myself for once there they hugged me and they told me we will love you and until you are able to love myself.

And from that point I started ?going to meetings and that was a break through for me. There was a counselor and he had given me some literature and I took it and read these papers while being in a shelter and he had informed me that there is a spot for you to be in Coatesville VA because I am a veteran. And my life has spiraled into a beautiful new life.

Yours Truly,
