I arrived at Mercy Hospice in 2010 broken down mentally, physically and spiritually. I was on parole and had no where to turn. I wanted to live a life free from drugs and alcohol, but I wasn’t sure how to do that. Thru the kindness, knowledge and generosity of the staff and my fellow Mercy residents, I have not only remained sober, I’m employed, attending college and I have contact with the child I once abandoned for my addiction. If you had told me 5 years ago that my tag line would be #lorilovinglife I wouldn’t have believed you, but it is. I’ve worked diligently to develop a sober network and a relationship with God. I attend AA. And I don’t use under any conditions. My new life began at Mercy Hospice and for that I will be eternally grateful.
