My health had gone from bad to worse. I have a history of alcohol abuse, and then one evening my son found me passed out on the floor. I couldn’t walk or function. Checking into the hospital, I discovered that my organs were breaking down. The hospital may have saved my life, but I needed to learn how to live again. Washington Center came through, giving me everything I needed. The team took care of me—with patience, compassion and understanding. The therapists created a rehab program specifically designed for me, and it worked. In less than a month I was back home, making it on my own with help from my family and the community. I feel stronger than I’ve been in a long time. The whole experience at Washington Center was a positive one!
