Options Recovery Services offers addiction treatment and mental health services. Our mission: To break the cycle of addiction that causes homelessness, violence, and broken families
My name is Suzoni...I am an addict. Who would have thought this simple statement would change my life.
When I walked through the doors at Options two years ago, it was out of desperation. I had lost just about everything and everyone. I had recently been released from jail and found myself homeless. I called my sister who was at that time raising my daughter. She said she would help. Unlike other times when my family gave me money or a place to stay, she gave me Options' phone number.
When I came into the program, I had no clothes, no money, and had not lived in the same house with my children in several years. I had finally hit my "bottom". Options has allowed me to become the person I lost so many years ago. Options taught me to live life on life's terms. For the first time in my life I am paying rent for my own apartment with money I earned myself. I am living with my daughter and bridging the gap that drugs made between us before she was born. I see all three of my nearly adult children on a regular basis. I have a good relationship with both my sisters. My mother and I are on the best terms we have been in my adult life.
Options has taught me that life has ups and downs and I don't have to use drugs to get through them. My life is not perfect, but it is better than I had ever imagined. My name is Suzoni and I am an addict
