I was homeless with nowhere to turn. I felt hopeless and felt I could never get past my addiction. I was referred to a New Entry by my case worker and it changed my life. D.B
I finally have the confidence I needed to face my past and smile at what the future holds. Because of the skills I have learned at A New Entry I can better communicate with my loved about the past and we are all on the road to recovery. One day at a time. - US Veteran
