Rebuilding your sense of hope
Hope. Such a simple four letter word, yet it can mean so much. It holds the possibilities
for our future; our dreams. It lives in the chance of a new or rekindled love and in ties to
our friends and family. We hope for the best, for ourselves and our loved ones.
Sadly, addiction can rob us of this feeling, rendering us a hollowed version of ourselves. As shells of what we used to be, our relationships suffer, our energy fades and ultimately it seems like we lose all hope.
But not all hope is lost. And because of the generosity of people like you, relationships are being restored, rebuilt.
"Words cannot describe how grateful I am for your contribution. My mother was able to enroll in the parent program. I feel that this is an invaluable tool in my recovery process. I think you should know that my sobriety is a direct result of your gratitude, so thank you. When I was told that I would be participating in the Parent Program, a wave of relief washed over me. I now know that I am supported not only by my mother, but also by people like you. By contributing to my recovery, you have made my life safer, easier, and more rewarding.
Relationships can play pivotal roles in overcoming addiction. They are often one of the first things to suffer as addiction takes hold, and they are also critical in making the everyday miracles of recovery possible. From the counselor who not only shares with you the concept of turning it over, but helps you develop a relationship with your higher power, to the family member who learns how to be loving and supportive in their relationship without enabling the addiction.
In 2012, nearly 2,000 people who sought recovery at Hazelden could not afford the full cost of care, were able to receive treatment and begin rebuilding their relationships thanks to donations to the Patient Aid Fund.
Because of the generosity of people like you, more than $7 million dollars in Patient Aid have been given to thousands of individuals seeking treatment and thousands more have their spouse, child, parent or friend back in their lives. Your gift today can help someone, just like Nick, know that they don't have to face this disease alone.
By making your gift, you can help restore hope for the children whose father is in treatment, for the husband losing his wife to addiction, for a kid like Nick who now has hope that recovery will work.
