Susan, a quiet, middle aged single woman was an alcoholic who managed to hold down a full time job, when she came to PADS. Susan worked hard at a job that paid a little above minimum wage, which afforded her income but not enough to pay rent and was too much to qualify her for government subsidies. she became depressed and despondent about her situation and she still refused to address her alcohol addiction. Susan soon lost her job and started drinking even more heavily.
As a part of her action plan, case managers continued to meet with her and address safety concerns. One day Susan walked in and came up to a case manager and said “I’m ready.”
Susan began her journey to sobriety by first medically detoxing at a facility and then she entered a 28 day program. After completing the treatment she was immediately placed in a sober living house. We are proud to report that Susan continues to remain sober, works full time, attends AA meetings every day and is making plans for her future.
