In With the New

Hello, and welcome to the new site!

It’s been a long time coming, and we’re very grateful for the good folks over at Monkey House Creative for giving our online home a 2018 update.

With that out of the way, let’s talk about how this update will help you:

The guiding ethos for this new build has been ‘how can we better serve people who come here and need help.’ That’s why the first thing you see is a link to our Recovery page and then resources for anyone who needs immediate help for addiction. If you need to find a support group, rehab resources, or an anonymous chapter near you, we want to do everything we can to help you get the help you need. If you ever don’t find anything you’re looking for on our site, PLEASE contact us.

You can also find a lot more information about our program, our people, and what you can expect on the horizon.

There’s a lot about recovery that can seem somber. It’s a serious thing, after all, when someone climbs up out of the pit of addiction. We take it seriously, because they’re counting on our community for a hand up, and the support to make it all the way out.

But there is also joy that comes with changing things for the better. We hope to be there with you for many more good changes to come.

 

For me, I really needed time away from my old environment. I needed a place where people are in recovery and are serious about their recovery, a place where I could fit in and give my newly-found recovery a solid foundation.

I’m finally getting better. I'm moving forward.

Life is so much better. I had no idea the sweet life I could have.

My alcoholism was so out of control and so was my life. I had a loss of trust with people who cared about me. It’s devastating. How do you regain that trust?

I came here because of word of mouth about Upper Room. I’ve known about God most of my life, but I did not KNOW God.

I've learned a lot about myself through this process. My character has changed. It's not easy, but with help, I know I can do it. It is God's will, not mine.

The disease is arrested, not destroyed. Each day you have to decide whether you’re going to live or die – because it will kill you.

When you’re in the midst of addiction, you’re also in the midst of loneliness and isolation. It’s hard to shake off. Your defense mechanisms are like a coat that you put on.
