Sobriety Date: 9/1/12 Serenity Village has completely changed my life in the best way possible. Before I joined the community, I was a hopeless heroin addict. I didn’t think I was going to be able to live a sober life, and had been to 6 different treatments before I was 21. When I came to Serenity Village, I had not seen or been to anything like it before. The people in the program truly cared for me and made me feel right at home. Since joining the program, I have been sober for 15 months, have established my relationship with God, made many friends, and I am closer to my family than ever before.
Sobriety Date: 3/10/13 Although my addiction may have been the best thing that ever happened to me...ultimately bringing me to a point of total submission to God and the beginning of a new relationship with Jesus, it's Serenity Village that keeps me in tuned to that relationship. The program keeps me focused, and my brothers and sisters keep me accountable. At SV, I have a family who loves me for who I am, a leader who sugarcoats nothing (thanks Jeff), and the spiritual principles taught in a language that I can understand and relate to. This IS where I belong.
Sobriety date: 6/27/12 My name is Dan and for the past 15 years I've been struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. Everything in my life was controlled by my need to get high. This addiction brought me to places I never thought I'd go. At my bottom, I was faced with jail time. I had lost the respect of my friends and family. I was utterly hopeless and on the verge of suicide. In the last year and a half through God working in the Serenity Village Recovery Program and the people that serve here, my life has been restored. Serenity Village means the world to me. My spirit has been restored, I have confidence to deal with life issues, I have a relationship with a loving and merciful God. From this wonderful program I have found a new freedom and purpose.
Sobriety Date: 9/27/11 I came to Serenity Village in October of 2011 from my 3rd treatment center at New Beginnings, located in Waverly, MN. After battling a drug and alcohol addiction for nearly 15 years, on Aug. 27th I celebrated 2 years of sobriety, the longest consecutive amount of time I have ever achieved. At first I was unsure about the spiritual part of the program and where exactly my faith was at, but looking back in hindsight God has blessed me significantly in all areas, and spared my life in multiple car accidents that should have killed me. I went from a hopeless drug addict to now playing the bass guitar at my church. God is good!
