I grew up in Butte the drinking capitol of Montana. I started messing around with alcohol, weed and coke in high school. Shortly after high school I got married and moved to Nevada and had 2 kids. I was working in underground mining and my addiction and alcoholism grew. I had tried treatment before but ended up losing everything… my marriage, kids, home. After a very serious suicide attempt I checked myself into Rocky Mountain Treatment Center.
They told me that I only had to change one thing and that was everything. So I did. I quit my job in Nevada and moved to Great Falls, MT where the only people I know are those in recovery. I recently started working at RMTC where my life began to change. Today I have a huge amount of friends that support me, my kids in my life and I sleep well at night without the worries of my past plaguing me.
