My name is Jorri, I am an addict in recovery. I was born and raised in Great Falls, MT. I grew up in a home that had alcohol and violence. I starting using drugs at a young age and never considered myself to be an addict or that I even had a problem because I was always able to life live while using drugs and alcohol. My addiction truly surfaced when my mom suddenly died on Mother’s Day in 2014. I drove myself into whiskey and became dependent on meth because I couldn’t deal with my grief. I ended up losing everything that I had in my life including my freedom. It wasn’t until I found out I was pregnant with my daughter that I realized I had a problem that I couldn’t fix by myself. That is when I admitted I was powerless over my addiction and that my had become unmanageable and checked myself into treatment. I was able to get the help that I needed to overcome what was holding me back in life. I now have an amazing husband, 2 beautiful children, and a life I never thought I could have.
I am proud to work at Rocky Mountain Treatment Center because I get to help people who are struggling just like I was. I am able to show them that recovery is possible and life is worth living.
