A Resident's Story
I arrived at the Last Chance house in June of 2018 after my second stay at an inpatient rehab facility. I was 21 years old, my life had been an uphill battle for as long as I can remember. Struggling with alcohol and substance abuse, inability to hold it together, a lack of understanding of what “it” even was. The Last Chance House and the wonderful community of men and women that surrounds it showed me, through experience, how to live a different way of life. A life that I thought I could never lead. The way that the house is structured allowed me to focus on getting well, everything else I need was provided and outlined. I am 24 now and have not consumed any mind altering substance since May 21st 2018. I owe my new life to the work that I learned living in the Last Chance House.
