(Gift Of Life Scholarship 2016)
My name is Ashley, and I’ll forever be grateful for all that Just Believe Recovery Center has done for me. About a year ago I was completely broken and beat down due to my heroin addiction. Homeless and struggling alone, I was overly discouraged regarding the thought of getting help because of my lack of health insurance and/or money. Fortunately, a friend of mine told me about the Gift of Life Scholarship opportunity which Just Believe was offering, and I then applied. To find out I was accepted and able to finally get the treatment I needed was truly a breath of fresh air and a weight lifted off of me. I finally had hope for a newer, better way of life.
Since completing treatment at Just Believe my life has been so amazing. I am now extremely healthier, mentally and physically. My family is a huge part of my life now, and I couldn’t be happier. I was able to travel the country to see and do so many great things this past summer. Also, I can finally hold a full time job and work towards my goals each day. I am finally living and doing things I only once dreamed of, and it all began with Just Believe and the idea of hope that I was given through the Gift of Life scholarship.
