My name is Leanna, I am a recovering addict. I was born and raised here in Great Falls, MT. I have struggled with addiction for over 10 years. I grew up in a home full of alcoholism and addiction, I told myself I would never choose that path, I believe it chose me. My father killed himself in 2003 and that is when I found my escape through drugs and alcohol. My addiction carried me through some very low phases in my life. At 29 with 2 amazing sons, who were growing up fast, I realized I was raising them the same way I was raised. With this realization, I knew it was time to pick myself up, ask for help and start fighting for my life. With the help of my higher power, inpatient treatment and the 12 steps I was able to reclaim my life. Today I am very proud to say I have almost 3 years clean and sober.
There is no way I could have done this alone. That is one of the many reasons I love Rocky Mountain Treatment Center. I want to be there for the ones still struggling, to help instill hope into their hearts and let them know they are not alone.
