Sierra’s Story…

I came to Bristlecone after getting arrested. I had been through treatment four years earlier, so I was skeptical about whether or not I would benefit from going through this program. I used meth regularly for about six years; and when I went through treatment before, I immediately went back to using. Over the years there were times when I wanted to stop using. Sometimes I would have short periods of sobriety, but I was so caught up with the people and the lifestyle that it seemed impossible for me to really quit. When I came to Bristlecone, I was hoping it would help me stay clean while on probation and in diversion court. I really didn’t think anything was going to allow me to stay clean long term. I felt like it was only a matter of time before I went back to my old ways. I just hoped I could make it through probation or beat the system until I finished court.

I never imagined that Bristlecone would end up changing (maybe even saving) my life. Through my treatment at Bristlecone, I rediscovered my self-worth and realized my own forgotten potential. I realized that I didn’t want to live the way I had been living. I now have five and a half months clean, which is more than I have had in the past six years! I am looking for a job, and even considering going back to school to finish my degree. I have even been thinking about a career in substance abuse counseling. I would love to have an opportunity to help people the way the staff at Bristlecone has helped me.
