Review for One Step At a time Recovery Inc., Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Saturday February 24th 2018 I walk through the doors of one step at a time recovery. I was broken, confused, lost, ashamed, heartless, emotionless, cold, numb, no self-worth. I had no self-love, no structure, no kind of stability. Most of all on that day I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I need a new way to live, I needed to gain my life back. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. Most of all I needed to get my family back my children back. I'm walking through One Step at a Time's door I was able to do so. One step at a time taught me a new way to live and that I was worth living for.

Needing structure and stability one step at a time taught me how to gain that back. They help me relearn responsibilities that built my structure and stability. I had to learn by doing adult things again like finding a job, holding that job down, by showing up everyday on time. Annette and her crew showed me how to gain that back. One way I was showed and learned was I now had bills to pay like weekly rent. I had to eat and boy oh boy did i eat now that i was liveing a new life. Witch meant I need food. Which meant I needed to get a job. Maintain that job. So I can have the means to do the adult things like pay bills,pay rent and get my food or necessities. Annette and her people knows us recovery addicts chances are dont have jobs at the time of entering the program. So not only did they teach me again how to look and gain a job but until i could do just that Annette and her crew helps me with some kind of work so I can get the things I needed and do on my own. Even if that was working at Annette on her property. You know what that showed me.? That she cared. Just didn't kick me out because I couldn't pay my rent. She gave me the means to be able to do so. She let me come out to her private place of living and let this attic and her personal area to earn my way. That showed me there was a new way to live. That showed me that love and compassion that I had to be retaught. That showed me that I was still lovable even if I was broken and sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I graduated from her program with a certificate 6 months later in August 2018.

I went home after graduation with everything I was taught. It was time for my graduation and to go home at this time I gained everything I had lost. I was no longer sick and tired of being sick and tired. I gained myself back. I learned a new way of living. Most of all I gained my children and family back.

And I got my certificate tonight at my graduation and going home and walking through the doors with my family and children I learned there was hope for addicts. I learned to keep the face and a higher power other than myself. I want to take one day at a time. And I learn not only do we recover but we are worth recovery. I owe that to Annette and her crew at One Step at a Time Recovery.

I gave them my broken up life. They help me put myself back together. Not only would I refer Annette and her crew to other addicts but I would also trust them with their lives, as well I trusted them. And still trusting them so much I would in fact not only refer other addicts to them, but I did guide and bring my sister to Annette's program so they could help her save her life.

Today almost 2 years later Here i am killing, standing strong. WE DO RECOVER.

1st pic was my mug shot. Realizing I needed help.

1st picture is today.!
And the 4th is my mug shot. The 2nd and 3rd is myself today with my children. And if I could share one more picture it would be my husband and I.
All Can say is Thank you God and One Step at a Time Recovery.!
And again

When I walked through the doors of One Step at a Time Recovery I was broken, lost and didnt trust nobody. The ones in One Steps office said very simply to me we will help put you back together so you feel and see that your not broken any longer, we will guide you through the way so dont worry you wont be lost long and we will show you its ok to trust rather it be with your higher power or trusting ur self the trick of it is it will take your work and foot steps.! And with my readiness and having willingness with an open mind I was put back together and I now can show my way and most of all I learned to trust my Higher Brother.!!
Thank You One Step at a Time Recovery.!!
Love Gigi a Recovering Addict one day at a time.!
