When I first found Steppingstone, I was at rock bottom. I had lost everything to my addiction – my family, my job, my house. I was able to move into the Fall River Men’s Recovery Home, and my life was forever changed for the better. With the support of the amazing people I met through Steppingstone, I can proudly say today that I have been clean and sober for 5 years. I found Steppingstone at my lowest point, and walked away with hope for the future.
Steppingstone helped me get my life back on track. After suffering with anxiety for nearly all of my life, I felt like I had tried everything and was beginning to feel hopeless. A friend recommended Steppingstone’s outpatient program and the mental health services that they provide have really helped me. Without Steppingstone, I know that I would not be able to finally say that I am in a good place in my life.
My gambling addiction had caused me to lose everything. I was living on the streets when I was referred to Steppingstone by a friend. I enrolled in their gambling treatment program and they helped me confront my addiction and get my life back on track. Their peer support group introduced me to people that helped me through my journey. Every day I am thankful that I was able to find Steppingstone to lead me down the road to recovery.
