I was your proverbial “tore up from the floor up” when I arrived at the Fordham House from Doctor’s Medical Center, March 15th of 2002. Beware the “ides of March.” I for sure wasn’t ready to leave the comforts of the hospital for a “dark” room in a house with a bunch of strangers. The infamous “Detox Room.”
It is my privilege to share my experience of the treatment I received at New Hope.. My name is Renee, and I am an addict. I have been struggling with the disease of addiction since a very young age. The getting and finding ways to get more was my life for many years. I've been in and out of the system, all my offenses drug related.
