Keystone to me is home. No matter where I am, no matter what’s going on good or bad Keystone is a place I can come back to and feel safe. Having a place like that as an alcoholic or addict can be the difference between relapse and sobriety at any given time. Somewhere that you can always go back to with people who will know what you’re going through that will pat you on the back when you need it or call you on your shit when you’re feeling sorry for yourself. Keystone is the reason I am clean and sober today, plain and simple.
I’ve been through 3 treatment centers and around 6 sober livings during my run at trying to find peace within myself. Although Once I came here to keystone they were very welcoming caring, loving and accepting and I’ve felt more at home here than anywhere else. I have come a long way and thanks to the people here I can proudly say that I’m going to be okay. My favorite thing about keystone has to be the Thursday night group, where alumni and residents get together to speak about their week or whatever is bothering them. It helps me hash out my feelings of uncertainty and doubt related to my insecurities Keystone saved my life.
