Beacon House Association of San Pedro
August 6, 2013

I've watched my Uncle struggle with substance abuse pretty much my whole life. Watched my mom and the rest of my family try to save his life on numerous occasions and put him in numerous rehabs. They worked for a bit but he always went back to the old lifestyle. It was very painful to watch my uncle go through all this stuff because, when he was sober, he was the best uncle! And my mom and him were very close growing up. I got to the point where I was scared he would never be 100% sober.

Since being at the Beacon House, he is a different man than all the times he came out of rehabs. I see that this is the time "it will stick". I have never seen my uncle be so proud of himself and the Beacon House! His pride and his perseverance is amazing! Thank you Beacon House for bringing my Uncle back and giving my family back the man we always loved!!!
