Success Story

After several years of struggling with his addiction and serving 10 years on and off in prison, Tobi was ready to give up on his recovery and accept that his addiction was going to define him as a person.  One day while in his prison cell, he decided to hand his life over to God and begin his journey in recovery.  Through his treatment, he learned how his anxiety and depression played a role in his addiction.  While in Outpatient treatment, Tobi learned the skills he needed to help manage his mental health symptoms and remain sober.  Through his sobriety and his recovery, he has been able to mend relationships with his loved ones, build a relationship with his son, and gain a close relationship with his higher power. While in outpatient treatment, Tobi began building relationships with people outside his regular group and sharing his story in hopes he could help just one more person. He enjoys building relationships within his sober community and formed a support group that he would later inspire to take the same journey in recovery as he has. Upon completing his treatment, he entered aftercare and has the goal of obtaining his GED and continuing his education to become an AOD counselor.
