Kevin’s Story:

I came to Jericho Road from the psychiatric ward; it was my second stay in about six months and at that time I felt as if life wasn’t worth living anymore.  After 25 years of drinking, I was spiritually bankrupt and my body had started to shut down.  Alcoholism had taken over my life; I was desperate.  In the first month of rehab, I was barely able to function physically and mentally but Jericho Road gave me the time I needed – time to relearn how to live life on life’s terms.  After 9 months, I was able to move to second stage housing and begin sober living equipped with the tools to be able to handle life.  Most of all I had a second chance at being a sober and reliable father to my 5 year old son.
