My clean date is 5/9/16. I was in my addiction for 10 years. I caught a federal case transporting drugs across the border and was arrested for the first time in my life and was ultimately sent to CRASH Short Term 2 (now Golden Hill House). I spent 101 days in the house and 6 months of aftercare with the same counselor for both. I graduated on 5/9/17. It was the best 1 year clean date present I could give to myself. After completing CRASH, I also graduated the diversion program and got off of probation with a clean record. All of the skills and tools I gained from CRASH helped me start living my life again. I have a relationship with my family today. I am a full time student. I am responsible. I am reliable. I am honest. I am trustworthy. I am also a Case Manager at a drug treatment program with the goal of becoming a Substance Use Disorder Counselor.
