Sonja’s Story

I “attended” Mt Regis in June of 2012. My life was not my life anymore. I shook when I did not drink and was paralyzed by fear when I did. I did not know what was wrong with me. I thought I would die if I did not drink and was dying when I drank. I was drinking 24 hours a day. I thought I would drink “just enough” to stop the shaking! Alcohol had consumed me…My husband thought I had brain damage; my children did not trust my judgment; my friends thought my marriage made me so unhappy, and I did too. I came to realize and believe that I was an alcoholic, and “I” was the problem.

Mount Regis was a life saver for me. I thought people that were “alcoholics” were homeless and crazy. I soon realized we were not. I had a “disease” that required rigorous honesty and abstinence from alcohol. Mount Regis taught me the Serenity prayer, and I found out that AA and NA are for ”normal” people with a common problem – addiction. I received the Big Book and read it. I was given the information and wisdom necessary to help change, fix, and control myself. The greatest was AA. There are meetings all over the state, country, and world! That is amazing to me! There are people like me everywhere with a common goal – to stay sober!

Ms. Kitty was my counselor during my stay and taught me so much about my disease and myself. Everyone there taught me something that has helped my recovery. Today, I can say that Mt. Regis helped me save my life! I have been sober for 1 year and 2 months. I have a great sponsor that asked me if “I was willing to go to any length to maintain my sobriety”. I attend AA meetings regularly, and I practice the 12 steps to the best of my ability every 24 hours. I was scared when I left Mt. Regis, and I went to meetings every day for more than 90 days and started to understand the 12 steps, the miracles that happen every day, and a wonderful new way to live life and not let life live me!

I am forever thankful for the help and encouragement Mt. Regis and ALL the staff gave me.

Peter’s Quote

I came to Mount Regis for a second chance. With hard work and willingness to change, I was given a whole new life – better than any I had ever imagined. All I have to do is trust God, help others and follow a few simple rules. Simple…not easy.

Bernard J. Celebrating 11 years

You don’t have to stay clean and sober the rest of your life. Just take it one day at a time! Celebrating 11 years of sobriety!

Hope & Happiness: Anonymous Alumnus

I have more hope and happiness today in recovery. I’ve gained things back that I had lost and am working on the things that haven’t come yet. I used to be depressed and suicidal. Since getting clean and sober, I rarely feel that way. I thank God every day that I found recovery!
