I tested the waters at Short Stay and found out this treatment really was for me. I was broken when I arrived. I was physically sick with no hope. LESC has changed my life. I leave here Hep C free, with my GED, and a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor Trainee Certification.

I’m now a mother to all my children, including my 5-month-old Timothy who was born while I was in the program. Timothy will come to know his brothers and sisters now because we are a family again.
