"My life was absolutely normal and simple before cocaine use changed everything. It started off as casual use, it made me feel unstopable, on top of the world. I had no idea the path it was going to take me down.
"I went from a family man and successful business owner, to a person who gave up everything including losing my self-esteem and feeling worthwhile as a person, father, and soulmate to my wife. The drug was now controlling everything about me. I was no longer that loving person.
"Over a 3 year period, I finally hit rock bottom, I lost my
family, my business, hurt many people around me. I finally realized that there
were only two decisions left to make in life.
1. Get OFF THE DRUGS
2. Continue down the road to self destruction.
"I chose to take the path to recovery. Thank God for my mother who gave me and my brother an opportunity to regain our lives back. We left for the rehab immediately.
"It was amazing to me to feel that there was a program out there I could believe in. It made total sense to me when I read about the saunas and how it can remove the toxins from one's body which eliminates the day to day cravings. That was all I needed to hear and I was gone with a positive attitude to become that same person I use to know. 3 to 5 months is a small price to pay for self esteem, reassurance, self respect, a family man and a person who never thought a drug could ruin his life.
"I want to thank my wife, my kids, my friends and other family members for believing in me. I hope others can experience what I did because it is beatable and there is a light at the end of that dark tunnel.
"Most of all I would like to thank the drug rehab center and all it's staff for making this happen. Their program truly does work and I've made it a goal of mine to help others get the proper treatment needed.
"Remember, never give up on a loved one, everyone deserves a second chance.
"Let's beat it together." - Cory
