A Testimonial From Kelly


I came to Into Action on May 18th 2012. I was the 33rd client to come there. I wish I could put into words how I felt at that time…lost, desperate, soulless…an empty person, black inside. It was my 5th treatment center and about the 18th time detoxing. I was an alcoholic and a drug addict and I was 33 years old. I truly believed that there was little hope for me, I couldn’t live the way I was living anymore, but stopping, changing seemed impossible. This was the last hurrah.

I could tell you a million things about my stay at Into Action…the smaller group of clientele, the individualized treatment, the weekend activities, all the holistic aspects…but here’s what it boils down to. Into Action cares, about you, your sobriety, your family, your needs…..most of the time they care more than you do, and that along with sponsors and working through the Big Book are what got me sober…and not just sober, recovered….from a hopeless state of mind and body.

So where am I today?? Well I have been working at Into Action since April 1st 2014 and am now the Assistant Manager to the Director of Operations there.
I get to give back all that was given to me and hopefully I will have an impact on someone else’s recovery. Hopefully I can show someone that recovery is awesome and can be more than you ever dreamed of, because that’s what it is for me today!
