Sally's Success Story

I was desperate, homeless and I needed help to get sober and recovery.  I was in St. Charles Hospital and the Social Worker gave me NAOMI House number and I called.   Ms. Toni told me to call back the next morning to see if there was an available bed and there was.  That was God doing for me what I could not do for myself.

I learned so much about myself and many of my character defects and the work I needed to do on myself.  It was not just the drugs and alcohol, but my belief systems and my attitudes and the counselors and other staff taught me to have tolerance, patience, faith, trust, unconditional love for me and others, how to share, how to give of self and not expect anything back and how to love myself for exactly who I am.

For the first time in my life I have my own place.  I pay my own bills.  I was taught about how to make a budget by Ms. Toni and Ms. T., how to cook, and how to shop for food.  How to set boundaries; how to ask questions for myself and respect for others.  Life is what I make it and if I follow the directions I was taught, I will be okay.

My family invites me to outings; possibly a part time job: more time with my family; a vehicle (in the future) peace, serenity (I have it now also) more volunteering possibilities (in recovery).  Giving back to others, maybe travel to family and friends.  The sky is the limit.  With God anything is possible.

Thank you.
