I want to be the best me I can be, to be the man my wife and children deserve, again. Also I want to understand, on a mental aspect, why I feel as if I need a substance to feel "whole"... I want to know what is "missing" in my personal life.

I just left the ARC after 4.5 months. The facility is clean. There is plenty of food. There are people working there who genuinely care about the beneficiaries. This program is, in reality, a slave-labor program that compels its clients to work 40 hours or more a week in a warehouse/distribution setting for free, or 7-20 dollars a week. With the exception of two, every paid employee of the center is using drugs. This is NOT a place for someone who is just coming from jail, or is addicted to narcotics. The door is always unlocked, you can leave anytime, and clients are literally surrounded by easily stolen goods that can often trigger theft and consequent relapse. Their religious views will be shoved down one's throat vehemently, different views are not an option. Many of the people who work there are addicts, and are still actively addicted, and as such, will go to any length to protect themselves from getting caught. This usually results in clients being unfairly accused in order to divert attention from the real violators. It is the sole discretion of the addict staff members to kick out a client. This can happen at 11pm at night, and the person is given black garbage bags with their clothes in it, and told to leave, regardless of weather, time, financial status, living situation, etc. Do not go there unless you have no other option. In July 2019, 34 people came in, and 33 left or were terminated.

I am contacting you all on behalf of my 40 year old brother. He is need of help, immediately. He has been using drugs for quite some time over 5 or more years. Currently, he is in jail (using meth, crack, synthetics, etc.) and will be released Monday. This is because he took some drugs and nearly burned down my mother's home. We are at our wits end to get him help. We are trying and have tried everything we know to do. Help beyond us is needed now. He will not make it to see his next birthday. We are needing direction, contacts or information to get him the proper help. Please help
