wow, this place really helped me. Im 25 years old now, i was 19 when i showed up shaking from detoxing. Looking back, this place absolutely saved & pivoted my entire life. I was ready to get sober, i really was... i got a early start at 12 and by 19 i was on a pretty dark road. I remember the 1st day in the woods, i wanted to quit the first few miles in... Truly difficult and i bitched the entire way, those woods were rough for a spoiled, no perspective, never worked for a damn thing in my life 19 year old drug addict like myself. It was everything i needed for my transition, because after that long time in the bob marshal, after whipping my ass with leaves, after peaking mountains, after living in the woods for 30 days carrying 60lb packs i had actually accomplished something that i really didnt think i could.. I mean it was rough for me out there haha but when i came back i think that was the moment of momentum in my life because i had a level of accomplishment and confidence after that experience. The staff, the environment, the cabins... the woods.... No phones, no escape... I mean really, this place is what a sick person like myself needed. God, from beginning to end this place has the formula down. An experience that literally save & jumpstarted my life into a new one. 6 years sober last month.
