"When I first came to HVAF, I was angry at myself for letting my life spiral out of control. I struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, but HVAF was there to help. The recovery program is great because it works. I no longer desire to turn to drugs or alcohol. I am 50 years old and I feel like my life is just beginning."

"I've been clean and sober nine months today. It's been a rocky road and a lot of work but it's worth it. The recovery program I went through at HVAF works. Without the support of its staff I wouldn't have been able to make it to where I am today."

"I was living in a homeless camp. Mike Adams, an HVAF staff member found me and kept coming back to check on me. I have so much to be thankful today, especially for Mike Adams entering my life and helping me get into the recovery program at HVAF. As a result of the program, I learned to love myself again. I also feel as if I have the confidence to be successful at anything I put my mind to. Thank you for bringing me back to a better place in my life."
