For the last 8 months, I have gradually seen the rebirth of my son ~ that son that I bore ~ that brilliant child. The love, the caring–it is still there. He just had to find it again. During those first few months in your program, we had long conversations about what he had learned about himself and where he wanted to go. Your programs taught him a lot–especially the fact that “being clean really feels good.”
Last evening, my son had dinner with us. Do you know what we were discussing over dinner? 401K programs, investments, and insurance benefits. My son was accepted into the Plumbers’ Apprenticeship Program. He is working regularly, going to school and making a new life for himself.
As he left, I felt compelled to write you this letter to personally thank you and your staff for giving my son a chance. Nine months ago, the thought of sitting down with my son over coffee and discussing how to invest monies into his 401K program just never occurred to me.
He’s come a long way and I thank you and your programs for that. I hope you continue with your fine programs as they truly work. If a person has the desire, with the help of your man programs, their dream of a better future, drug-free life can come true.
