TESTIMONIALS 

Marcus’ Testimonial

Nobody plans on becoming a drug addict. In fact, I’m pretty sure no one ever plans on even trying drugs. Like many other things in my life, it just seemed like one day I looked around and found myself in a full-blown addiction. Some people try certain drugs and are turned off by it and never think twice about it. Some others seem to enjoy them and only do them recreationally, occasionally. I am neither of these types. I learned from an early age that once I got high I instantly felt better- about everything. It changed the way I perceived life and all of it’s troubles. It was my immediate solution to anything and everything I could possible feel anxious or worried about. Whether my first use of drugs was to “fit it” because other people were doing it or not doesn’t matter because once I started I was completely powerless to stop myself.  


Aaron’s Testimonial

Inadequate is the word I would use to best describe how I have viewed myself since I was a child. When I was growing up all I ever wanted was to feel as happy as everyone else looked. What was wrong with me that made me feel so different?


Seth’s Testimonial

My addiction to drugs and alcohol began at a very young age. I have always struggled with self-esteem issues and the abuse of prescription drugs seemed to provide me with an immediate sense of relief from all of my problems, an “easy way out”. However I quickly found that this kind of quick fix was anything but easy. When I wasn’t using drugs or alcohol the struggle to find where I belonged in life became so much greater. This created a constant cycle where I felt that I could never stop using. I tried to quit many times- only to find myself making up lies or rationalizing my behavior so that I could use just one more time. One more time was never enough.

Dustin’s Testimonial

I was always the guy trying to save myself. I was in control of everything. My drug use lead me from being married with four kids to being completely and utterly alone. Even though drug use ran my marriage into destruction, I continued to use drugs. This left me broken, depressed and alone. Even my immediate family wouldn’t allow me to come near them.


Shannon’s Testimonial

Upon arrival at BCRC, I was greeted with the most kindness and brotherly love I have experienced ever by complete strangers. It reminds me of the parable of the lost son. This parable is fitting because I can relate to the humiliation and worthlessness one of the sons felt. I was given a very warm welcome. My bed was ready, my books were given to me and I was told to go first in line that night at dinner. I spent the first couple of weeks in getting used to being in my first rehabilitation center. The whole time I am praying, missing and worrying about my 10 year old son who did not deserve this at all. My son and I lost mommy last October. Her death was witnessed by both of us and now my son has no mother and a father in rehab.
