After rehab, my REAL recovery journey began with the Turner House. The meetings, the structure, the brotherhood all make this house special! I would not be the man I am today without GOD and the foundation we built at the Turner house. Forever Grateful!!!
I stayed at the Turner House for 11 months back in 2008. I’m not sure I would have fully committed to a life of recovery without the structure and support received while staying at the house. I now have a family, own a home, a business and working on 15 years of sobriety. I will be forever grateful for the Turner House.
In 2014, I entered Turner House, and I immediately wanted to leave because the house had too many rules and was structured in a way that was foreign to me. Today, I have a little over 8 years of sobriety. The house, along with the rules provided a foundation for my recovery which in turn, gave me a second chance at life.
I will always be eternally grateful for Turner House. At my darkest time I was given an opportunity to come stay before my final treatment. Without the fellowship, structure, and accountability offered I would not be the man I am today. On January 28th I will have 8 years of sobriety and I owe this celebration to Turner House. I am now honored to be of service to the house as its acting Board Vice President. Recovery is possible when there are places like Turner House to support men struggling with addiction!
I reconnected with God while I was at the Turner House. It taught me discipline, responsibility, how to fellowship, and most importantly it gave me hope that I didn’t have to live life the way I had been living it anymore. That little bit of hope was all I needed. Turner House will always have a special place in my heart.
I lived at the Turner House Spring 2009-Spring 2010 after my second stint in residential treatment for my alcoholism, and I am so grateful that I made that decision. Turner House provided me a safe, structured environment where I learned how to live life on life’s terms without having to use drugs and alcohol. I also got the opportunity to share my experience of early recovery with other men who were just beginning their own journey and I still keep up with many of them today. I consider them to be lifelong friends, because we were able to hold each other up through one of the most difficult times of our lives. These men are like brothers to me, and I will never forget the year I spent at Turner House. Today, I am 13 years clean and sober, and I have a beautiful life that is so far beyond anything I could have ever imagined for myself.
I came to Turner House not knowing how to stay sober outside of incarceration. Turner House gave me the tools to stay sober and get my family back. Today I am the district manager for a south Texas multi-million dollar company, a dad, and a husband. I truly believe in Turner House, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without it!
The in-house recovery meetings, the fellowship, and encouragement of the men in the house made the spirit of recovery awesome. The structure and accountability were exactly what I needed. I am still in touch with some of the men that were there with me. We’re all still sober and brothers. Very grateful for the Turner House!
What the Turner House did for me was it taught me how to live clean and sober. It gave me a brotherhood and a father figure (Fred). It gave me men to lead me down an unknown road. The Turner House helped save my life. I lived there for 11 months and over that time I picked up some life changing tools from the men in the house. I knew 30 days in a rehab facility wouldn’t be long enough to re-learn how to live a clean and sober life. Turner House did so much for me.
