Beacon House Association of San Pedro
August 7, 2013

I watched my husband crawl inside a 20$ rock of crack and take his 401K, a truck, an excellent job , and the most beautiful baby girl in right in behind him. He smoked up a loving home, a kind and loving family , wonderful step-children,a white picket fence and a marriage. Bad -doesn't even come close to all the ruined dreams........and one day he went to The Beacon House....at the time I remembered thinking- well this is the only "rehab" that you haven't tried... I had begun to think that he just couldn't stay clean and that he didn't want too. At first The House wouldn't allow outside contact which was hard for our daughter and I. But we waited...and we hoped...and we prayed....and prayed some more...I prayed for him to stay....and finally after 30 years of addiction.. he found a program that worked...he stayed clean..he went through counseling ...groups...volunteer activities..and he became a "real person"...He has strength of character now...he has become more spiritually sound... and he is able to be the best father he can be...that baby girl isn't waiting for someone who isn't coming any more he is early! :) Though our marriage did not survive the addiction, because of the Beacon house; our friendship did. I have a relationship with a wonderful man and he has been clean over five years- THANK YOU BEACON HOUSE-THANK YOU GOD

Hey my name is Adele. My experience at the house isn't being in it but apart it it. It gave me back my daddy which I never thought would be possible and it gave me new family and friends that I couldn't have imagined I'd ever have. I am a girl yes but the house has given more than thought possible. It gave me my happiness back and I thank not only god but the beacon house that. I love you beacon house
