The owners Carl, Bob and Dave brought me here. I was really unhappy where I was before, and it was a different sober living out here. I came to Ventura Recovery Center and without lots of questions they said “come over, we’re ready to pick you up, just pack up your stuff and come.” And that’s what happened. I got here, and the best thing about here it’s like a huge family. You just feel so loved.
In my drug addiction I was just in places where I knew I didn’t belong. I knew I wasn’t raised like that. The reality was kind of setting in, and it was I don’t want to just be this body roaming around the earth, addicted to drugs and alcohol. I want to live, I want life in me, I’m miserable. And even when I was using, I couldn’t get happy. At which there was a point it stopped working. Ventura Recovery Center is a drug and alcohol rehab center that cares.
