I was court ordered the first 28 days thankful to get out of jail went in with an open mind and in need of recovery. Yes, the food was horrible, the staff a little rude, but the counselors cared and wanted to help and teach you about addiction and why we think the way we do and do the things we do. No its not Betty Ford and some people just go there to get off the street but I chose to go long term because I needed it. The doctors at the clinic where fantastic and made sure to help you with whatever it is you needed and a guy named Sean in treatment staff would always go out of his way to help people with housing and food stamps or whatever else people needed assistance on. Yes they made certain things complicated for us and yes it got frustrating but having addict behavior we have to learn that we can't always have things our way. The 8 weeks I was there 5 people that left to early hit the streets and died right after. Its definitely a life changing experience and an eye opener, the good and the bad. I formed a brotherhood and bond with people in there that will last a lifetime. They need to fix alot of things and try not to drive people away to early deaths because its sad the things people get kicked out for because a certain staff member is working that day.. We all make our own choices, yes. But some people are torn up and side and really need the help and don't deserve to be thrown away like a piece of garbage. Alot of lost souls and ghost in that building. I pray for everyone that walks in and out of those doors, staff, clients, counselors, & the director. Peace..

In the beginning of my stay in was totally frustrated and uncomfortable. To say the least I contacted my family any chance I got to cry and beg them to come get me from that crazy place. Still in denial, I would say. " I don't deserve this...how is their program supposed to help me." I couldn't even turn on the light switch without asking permission as a grown woman. However, once I got through the "assessment process," things began to make sense and I was noticing myself changing. I caught myself looking forward to our groups and classes and realized not only did I need the information that I was receiving but it also started I was able to put the puzzle pieces back together of who I am. As I found myself and got really real with myself....as much as it hurt and was embarrassing, i was able to be free myself of ALL of the the tragic things that happened to me. I didn't know at that time that I was truly being molded and shaped to be able to function as a good citizen in society. I learned how be a better part of who I was intended to be. I am the mother of 3 incredible boys that I couldn't be a mother to because I was to caught up in ME! I got the tools needed to graduate and thank God, I have been blessed to have almost 7yrs sober and I can tell you with everything in my soul, I know it couldn't have happened without the knowledge and experience gained from my stay at Odyssey House. I am by far perfect....but today I can say I love myself and I'm proud of myself. I am grateful and blessed beyond words for tbe commitment and resilience of the staff, to not give up on me and push me to get everything they were trying to gift me with. Thank you Odyssey House for helping me through the absolute hardest trial I've ever experienced. For guiding me through getting my boys back and for never letting me quit! I will tell you this is Not in any way an easy program, but life is also not easy. If we don't work and put effort into the things in life we want, then we will never be able to appreciate it! Funny enough I'm training to be a Pastor now and am able to share my story and help other struggling women who are completely lost. Just like me before I went there. I can pay it forward and for that I am greatly blessed!!!!!

I was admitted to the Odyssey House on Feb 12, 2013 for the 28 day program. I had no intention on staying the entire 28 days. The whole reason I was going was to impress my mother so she would get off my back about my drinking. The first few days I was there was pure hell. People were rude, clients were stand offish and staff was retarded. However after a few days I realized that all the problems I had encountered thus far were basically with myself. With the help of my counselor Ms. Lauren I realized that I did have a drinking problem, my condition was not acceptable. I began to process that information. On the last day of my 28 days, I applied for the long term program. I was accepted. 6 more months. I never thought I’d get through that either. As I am sitting here writing this I’m still in treatment at Odyssey House and I happened to read the horrible reviews of the facility. I owe my Life, Recovery, Family relationships and personal pride to the Odyssey House. If you are serious about your recovery than Odyssey House may be right for you. However, if you’re not ready to be sober or clean go elsewhere an don’t waste the councilors or your own time. I owe this place my life. You would too if you took it seriously.
