“I had a very good childhood, a good upbringing and I did well in school. After graduating from college I got involved in the restaurant and nightclub industry. This led to recreational drug use and casual drinking. Eventually, this became an everyday habit. This habit carried me down a very dark and dangerous path. The drug abuse and drinking were the symptoms of a much deeper rooted problem which was pride, lust, shame, guilt, and anger. Upon making my way to Savannah MBTC I began to take an honest look at myself. I’m very happy to be here because I’m learning how to be a loving son and a trustworthy friend and most importantly I have found a purpose for my life.”

“When I was young I was bullied in school so when I was 11 or 12 years old I started experimenting with alcohol. This led to harder drugs in my teenage years. I had a lot of self-esteem issues and experienced a lot of rejection. I thought the drugs and alcohol would help me fit in but it quickly spiraled out of control. I suffered from anxiety and depression and for a long time that’s the way I lived my life. My family staged an intervention and finally convinced me to seek some help. That’s what led me to Savannah MBTC. I have found that I don’t have to live that way anymore and The Lord has given me a new outlook on life.”

Savannah rehab center success story

a solid foundation for your future

“I was in 25 foster homes over the 13 years that I was in the foster care system. I didn’t like any of them, they were not my family. When I turned 19, I aged out of foster care and went back home to my family. I did well for about a year then I got mixed up with drugs and about a year after my drug use began, I burglarized a gas station, got caught, and went to jail. When I was released from jail, I went right back to doing the same thing that had brought me there. After about my fifth time to go to jail, I finally realized that something had to change, so I asked to go to rehab and I believe with my whole heart that God stepped in and began working on my behalf. In a million years I would never have thought that I would end up at a Christian discipleship program but the Lord had a different plan for me. When I came to Savannah MBTC I did not know Jesus but after a few short days, I realized that I needed to accept Him into my heart and life. I needed Jesus as my savior. I believe that God has a plan for my life. I am letting my past life go so a new life in Christ can begin.” -Jeremy F. 2020
