Crossroads sent ‘real’ mom, daughter home
To the editor:
I feel it would be very sad for the detox center to close. (Detox Centre Closing Due to Funding Shortfall, Jan. 10 Capital News.)
My experience was that I had a drinking and drug problem. It was affecting my life, my children’s and grand children’s lives.
I decided to put myself into detox in October 2012.
The experience was great. The nurses, the people that work there are absolutely amazing and they went out of their way for me.
It has changed my life. I was able to go to the lady’s treatment center.
I am now four months clean and sober. My family is so happy to have their mom back. My mom and dad are very pleased and happy to have her real daughter back.
I feel if that if the detox and the lady’s and men’s treatment center closes down so many people will miss out on so much and just end up back on the streets. I feel I am very fortunate to have been able to utilize these services. It has saved my life because I was slowly dying. I am a very grateful recovering alcoholic, thanks to Crossroads.
