Sheryl – 51

story-item Description

After having my daughter taken away from me in 2015, I started drinking even more than usual and turned to drugs to help me cope. For three years, I dealt with my depression by using drugs and alcohol.
But one day, I looked in the mirror and said I’ve had enough. My daughter always tells me: “Mom, you’re the best. Just stop drinking.” So, I finally called around looking for help and found Holy Cross Services.
They helped me deal with the root cause of my problems. In addition to depression, I also suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. After months of work with the staff here, they’ve helped me cope with both my issues, as well as the drug and alcohol addiction.
I’m doing very well and am looking forward to getting my daughter back. I want to be the absolute best mom for my little girl and I’m proud of myself for getting clean. I’m here to quit drinking and be the best mom I can be. I want a great future with my little girl.
At Holy Cross it’s not just about rehabilitation for substance abuse. They look at all the other factors in your life that are causing the addictions. They have great nurses here, great therapists. All the staff are fantastic.
I’m so happy to be here. When I lost my daughter, I wasn’t healing. I was masking the pain. With the therapists and the people here, I’ve been able to get healthy.
