On Oct. 21, 2015 I entered Randolph Fellowship Home after completing a 28-day treatment program, not knowing how to live on life's terms. The rules of the house are set to build a foundation. A foundation on which to live on my own some day without using. We must be up and dressed by 9 am, wash our clothes, clean (chores), learn how to feed ourselves with healthy food options by learning to cook and turn our phones in by 10:30 pm to getting the proper amount of sleep daily. All these examples are thing that relate to life on lives terms. It has been teaching me responsibility, acceptance amongst many other daily principles. In active addiction my life was unmanageable, I didn't know how to take care of myself or my daughter. All I knew was how to get high. Randolph Fellowship Home for me is a key component on a journey to becoming fully self-supporting physically, mentally and spiritually in life. I'm grateful for the house for giving me a chance at life again.
Today, not only am I helping other addicts and alcoholics but I'm going to Randolph Community College to become a substance abuse counselor, working and I'm a productive
member of Randolph County. My daughter and family are a part of my life today and I'm forever grateful for United Way and other supporters that believed my life was worth saving.
Randolph Fellowship Home Inc. has saved my life and countless other peoples. They helped me get on m feet when I was hopeless, jobless and penniless. The staff took the time to work with me on my individual needs by taking me to all my appt, listening to me and guiding me in ways that I could learn to live clean with our drugs or alcohol in my life. I became employable and still maintain that job, got my license back bought a car and paid for it. I learned about my disease and how to manage it daily. I was connect with mental health to address my mental illness. After going through there program I was able to rent my own apartment and now live a great life. I still attend 12 step meeting and have a sponsor. My children are back in my everyday life and I never thought that would be a possibility. I'm truly grateful for these facilities.
