"I've tried before and failed. The last time I immediately went into the hospital at Loyola and have been sober ever since. Loyola staff and the peers at Loyola saved my life. Through group therapy (which I attend every day) and other ways, I've been shown what I could do -- that I'm somebody who can help myself and others and helping others helps me. Loyola has given me every opportunity to help myself and others, for which I am highly appreciative."
"The Vivitrol is a life saver. It has helped me live my life to a fuller extent and stay clean."
"Loyola's program opened doors that saved my life. For two years I was living in the woods, thinking only about getting my next fix. Now I go to AA meetings, have an AA sponsor, notice the little things like the blue sky that mean so much, and check in every day with Loyola."
"I don't get involved as much but I do read. When I reach out, Loyola staff are there to help - they've been great, maybe because some of them are Veterans too which helps tremendously."
"I was ready to give up, I had no hope, and I could not stop drinking. Loyola Recovery Foundation brought me back to life! The staff at Loyola never gave up on me even when I had given up on myself. The mPOWER program has given me the tools and the support network to realize I am not alone in my battle against addiction. No matter what time of the day I have someone I can turn to in times of trouble. The staff at Loyola has made me realize that living life one day at a time is not so bad. They taught me to realize that my recovery from alcoholism must come first and foremost in my life! I am extremely grateful and appreciative to all the help I have received from Loyola Recovery Foundation in helping me establish a strong foundation in my recovery."
