In 2006, I spent an extended period of time at the Edgewood centre for addictions treatment to recover from an addiction to alcohol and sedatives.
It saved my life.
But it wasn't cheap. My stay at Edgewood cost me about $25,000. I had to mortgage my home to afford it. But I was lucky, because I had that option. So many people living with addictions are ready to get treatment but can't afford it.
This walk (June 21) raises money for the Edgewood Foundation, which sponsors people in need and covers the cost of their treatment.
- Addicts get to come to treatment.
- Family members experience Insite.
- Children partake in the Bounce Back program.
- Broken lives and families are pieced back together again.
I hope you can help me give back to this amazing program. It saved my life. I'd like to help save others.
NOTE: Even if you're not interested in any of the business-like perks, I'd still very much appreciate your help! :-)
