Why Jessica Williams Was Blown Away by These Minnesota Women’s Stories of Addiction and Recovery
You know those moments in life where you just have to pause and take it all in? Friday, September 9th, I had one of those moments. I was emceeing an event for women, and in between a few songs that were being sung by a women's choir, a few of the members openly shared about the moment they hit rock bottom. That was my moment.
Women Openly Share About Their Struggle With Addiction and How a Minnesota Organization Helped Them Find Freedom
If you've watched someone struggle with addiction, you know the toll that it takes on a family. I've heard multiple stories from women in Minnesota who lost it all - their home, job, and their relationship with their kids because addiction took over. Some women have spent time in jail or prison, and sometimes, that is when the bottom was hit.
I remember sitting in a room and just listening. As tears were falling throughout the room as the stories of defeat and addiction were shared and the moments of their rock bottom, these women all mentioned a specific place in Rochester that helped them recover.
MN Adult & Teen Challenge became a place where these women found victory. This organization provides customized care for men and women, and will help you find a treatment that fits your life including short-term, long-term, and outpatient care.
Outpatient treatment for substance use has been a huge benefit for many women who are ready to get sober but have responsibilities such as work and school that make it challenging to step away for a longer amount of time for a residential treatment program.
Regardless of the program, MN Adult & Teen Challenge is there to help you find freedom from life-controlling substances. If it can happen for the women that I've had the opportunity to meet, I know it can work for you too.
