Why should you invest and support Susan B Anthony? , My name is Meredith Mills and I am a pass client of Susan B Anthony with 12 years 11 months sober today. I am forever indebted SBA for giving me my life. As an orphan raised by the streets of Miami; I didn't have anyone there teaching me right from wrong. I didn't go through those normal stages of childhood with birthdays parties mom decorated or cry over a boy that my dad ran off because he was no good. When it became time for me to a mother; I guessed every step of the way. I had gone through many other types of treatment centers and they function all the same. They would remove me from my family (a husband and child), address my alcohol/drug use, a little of my pass, and then drop me right back into the real world mother/wife role. I came unglued every time because I was never given real world treatment with every thing being covered from parenting, anger management, social skills, and balancing my checkbook. It was the combination of different areas that they cover with the duration of time that allowed what they were showing me to absorb. When I was ready to go back into society; I had not only the practice of these skills but their continuing support that gave the confidence that I could be successful.
Today I am just that! While I lost my first husband and child to my addiction; I went on to have a another son who is almost 13 himself now. I am a stable single mother who is entering a university to start a masters program for social work. I was able work through the 12 steps of AA which I still attend meeting every week. I have been able to stop smoking tobacco after 25 years, lost over 50 lbs, and this list of accomplishments continues. What Susan B Anthony has designed here, backed by their dedicate caring staff works! “I'm proof” and to this day I know in my heart that their care and support is still there for me today and this helps give me the strength to pursue the real world that used to once consume me. Thank you, Meredith
Susan B Anthony gave me a safe place to call home during my pregnancy in 2007. I was able to give birth to my son clean, sober and healthy. During my stay I recieved amazing treatment. I bonded with other women who suffered from the same disease of addiction as myself. Susan B Anthony provided the knowledge I needed to live a happy, sober, productive life. Not only am I a graduate of Susan B Anthony, I am now currently an employee. I now have the opportunity to give back what has so freely been given to me.
