A Sense of Purpose

Edward M. – Alum Testimonial, Origins Recovery Center

To say I was a mess when I walked into Origins would be an understatement.

That is the case for most of us that get the opportunity to walk through that front gate. Drugs and alcohol were quickly tearing my life to shreds. I had become so acquainted to a life fueled by fear that I had forgotten the ease and joy that characterized most of my childhood. I had no faith in myself. I had no sense of passion or drive. I couldn’t imagine a life without drugs and alcohol, but I also couldn’t imagine a life with them.

Much to my surprise, I left Origins enthusiastic about life.

I felt a sense of purpose. I had reconnected with the idea that I have a lot to offer to this world. The attitudes and ideas that once governed my thought and behavior had mostly vanished. Origins gave me the tools to be a happy, sober man with integrity.

Origins offers a program that works miracles.

At the foundation of that program is the staff. I struggle to put into words just how incredible the staff is. They have a sincere desire to help each individual that comes through. Their passion for their work stems from a selfless ambition to help the fellow addict or alcoholic. They are so much more than just employees. To this day I consider them mentors and friends.

Origins combines 12-step immersion with top-line clinical services in a calm and peaceful environment.

This paves the road for what members of AA call “spiritual experiences.” I am grateful that I had such an experience at Origins. Throughout my recovery I have been involved with a wide variety of treatment centers for service reasons. I have yet to encounter one that offers an experience quite like Origins. A foundation to pursue a happy life was provided to me at Origins, and for that reason, it will always be a place that I hold near and dear to my heart.
