A Few Testimonials...
I would like to share some of my history to help you better understand my relationship with Bill Corbett and how he has impacted my life.
When I was 14 years old, I started into what would become a 20 year devastating addiction to drugs and alcohol. These chemicals negatively affected every area of my life making it very difficult to finish high school and stopped my college education in the second year. The chemicals were becoming the most important thing in my life and eventually would destroy every important relationship, including family and friends. I lost every job I ever had, and over the next 15 years, I was in and out of mental hospitals, jails, and sanatoriums.
To make a long story shorter, I ended up in Colorado 31 years ago where I entered a 30-day inpatient treatment program. I worked hard on this program, but six-months out of treatment I found myself relapsed back into alcoholism. For the next 3 1/2 years, the dread and fear of this illness returned.
I felt like an absolute failure in life going in and out of recovery, but not being able to stay sober for more than a few weeks at a time. The fellowship was supportive, but the depression, anxiety and sleepless nights would drive me back to the bottle. I again entered treatment for 30 days thinking this time would be different, but after only a few short weeks, I was again, living a nightmare of drunkenness. Then came the bottom and an awakening to the fact that I was either going to get and stay sober or never find the answer to having a healthy, prosperous life.
That's when Bill came into my life. He became my mentor and coach. Bill showed me compassion and understanding, helped me develop healthy loving relationships with family, friends and myself. He helped me become emotionally and spiritually healthy, finding the peace I had always been looking for.
Bill was and still is a very important person in my life and because of his commitment and passion for helping me, I now have a life I could have only dreamed of in my early days.
Today I've been sober for 27 years, have a wonderful wife and three beautiful grown children, who have all graduated college and have very happy fulfilling lives of their own. I have a world of great friends in very successful residential treatment center in Loveland Colorado.
With gratitude to Bill, I continue to pass along many of the gifts of life. He has shared with others and me.
