I grew up in a loving family with both parents present and fully engaged in my upbringing. Being an excellent student, I received a great education, and my life was full of many opportunities.
In 2004, together with my family, we moved to the US. After a while, my father got sick and passed away. The pain and sorrow were unbearable. I have battled depression for so many years that I didn’t see the way out. Shortly after my father’s death, I turned to drugs trying to find peace and comfort.
Soon, I realized that my life got consumed by substance misuse. My family tried to help me. Multiple detox attempts, rehab centres, psychiatric treatments – we tried it all, but nothing worked. We were hopeless. All I saw ahead of me was death. There were people from a local church who continued to visit me and my family, offering help and prayers.
For long and painful seven years they didn’t give up on me. Being completely broken, I have decided to go to Exodus Recovery, where my life was changed once and forever.
After seven years, I have finally found freedom from all addictions and depression. The program was designed in such a way that I was able to restore physically, mentally, and spiritually. My life is fully restored, and I no longer feel like a burden for my family and society.
At Exodus Recovery, God completely changed my character and relationships with my loved ones, placing me in a big community of people where I feel loved and accepted. I have dreams and hope for the future. I am grateful for every single day of my life.
