Review for Center Point, San Rafael, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am so very grateful to have found an organization like Center Point. Not only have they made a huge difference in my family’s life, but I’ve see them do it for countless people in this community. Thank you!

My Story

I am a single mother of two daughters.
Before finding Center Point in 2010 I had been living in a motel for almost a year with my children.
I was referred to Center Point as it had a reputation for being “tough” and was a program that offered services that could benefit me and my struggling family.

I began attending groups that centered around topics such as Life Skills, Parenting, Anger Management, and Cognitive Thinking. I learned how to incorporate important concepts into my daily life, such as Integrity and Responsibility. Through the group process and writing assignments, I developed useful tools that have helped me to remain a sober, healthy, contributing member of the community.

Before entering treatment I had been unsuccessful in keeping any sort of stable housing or employment. At Center Point, I received support in Job Readiness and before I even left residential I had found a full time job. I am still working and continue to receive support from the program with money management, budgeting, and saving for the future.

But most importantly, my children’s lives have benefitted greatly from this experience. After my graduation in July 2011, I was granted full primary physical custody of both girls, and my CPS case was closed permanently. Center Point also helped guide me through court proceedings, and as a result I no longer have pending criminal cases, and my court probation had been lifted.

My kids have a stable life today, and I am a stable parent. Today I am an active member of the Center Point Alumni Association, where I can listen and share my experiences in the hope of reaching out and helping those addicts who still suffer. We also plan and organize clean and sober events in the community.

Again!!
I am so very grateful to have found an organization like Center Point. Not only have they made a huge difference in my family’s life, but I’ve see them do it for countless people in this community. Thank you!
