My journey began the moment I clicked on the website. I believe The Sanctuary chose me. I’d been looking at treatment centers for two years, while I was slowly killing myself with many drugs, the worst being cocaine. I made the call and arrived three days later, beginning a journey that would not only save my life, but forever change my life.
Through the process at The Sanctuary, I realized drugs were not the root of my problems. The truth is that I had never felt "whole" my entire life, until now. They led me through a an amazing process of deep psychological work, soul searching, energy healing and camaraderie with the staff and other guests, I found all the missing pieces of "me".
Amongst the life changing experiences there, nutrition was a major turning point for me. My diet consisted of fast food and frozen dinners. I learned how good food tasted and made me feel. I never thought that food could change the way I felt, but it did. That was a bonus for me that I never expected and something I could easily change at home.
There aren’t enough words or time to explain how eternally grateful I am to The Sanctuary and all the life changing knowledge I gained, the incredible friendships I forged, the adventures we went on, the tools I have that I can use for the rest of my life. In addition to all the incredible things the Sanctuary offers, it all takes place in a beautiful, safe atmosphere that feels like home the minute you arrive.
So anyone who is reading this who is feeling lost or has given up on life; listen up. I was skeptical about all the “methods” The Sanctuary uses in the total life transformation program. I am living proof that it really works. I , along with every other guest I saw leave, am sad to leave, but excited to start on a new path. I have a life worth living. Coming to The Sanctuary, I feel like I have an extraordinary family that I will have for the rest of my life.
In short, I would have gladly given my life earnings for everything I gained at The Sanctuary. It literally saved my life and enriched it beyond anything I could have ever imagined. What an adventure. The Sanctuary truly is food for the soul. Thank you so much to all of you.
