The Most Precious Gift
-Testimonial by Jordan
I started using opioids in 2008 after my father died. I was in and out of jail in Florida until I moved back home to the Berkshires. I continued to use on and off. New Year’s Eve 2013, I was just sick and tired of living that way and having nothing and began with Experience Wellness Centers Pittsfield office ( Now Savida Health). I am coming up on four years clean and sober. Making the decision to get help and stay clean with the support of staff, family and friends. I have met the woman of my dreams, bought a home, new truck, a motorcycle and was given the most precious gift I have ever received in my life by having my son.
