A Letter From a Grateful Addict

March 8, 2018

Dear Jason,

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this. It has been a rough couple of days around here and I was going to wait until I left to write this, but I think it’s important you hear it now. I think the best way I’m going to be able to articulate my thoughts is to just write so excuse my informality and various ramblings.

CWC saved my life in a very real way. You, Jason, are a huge part of that. I have been to 30+ treatment centers but never one like this, never one like yours. This place so obviously cares. You go above and beyond for people every chance you get, seemingly without thought or hesitation. Owners usually sit behind a desk and scheme and plan and count their money. You actually interact with our clients, and you hear us, which is the crazy thing. You aren’t just walking around to be seen, you’re there looking to help. Of everyone you employ, you seem the most approachable to me. If you tell someone you’re going to do something, you try your best to get it done and you can’t do it, you explain why. That’s admirable. I also need to give you mad credit for all the hard decisions you have to make. It’s not easy to make any decision when you’re literally dealing with people’s lives, but you seem to think everything through and I have no doubt the majority of the time you lose sleep over things you have to do. You’re a good man, Jason. Now this is not to say this place is perfect by any means. I don’t agree with choices you make how certain things happen or the way specific situations are handled but it is absolutely worth noting that the good most certainly outweighs the bad.

Now let me tell you what all of your the staff has done for me. They have shown me how to break free from myself. They gave me the tools to value myself. They have shown me that making mistakes is okay, as long as I correct them. They have taught me to pick my battles, because not everything is as serious as it may appear at first. I know what compassion looks like because of you and your staff. I know that even though my first thought isn’t always right, it’s okay that I have the thought. You all showed me that the world isn’t an ugly, dark, twisted place all the time. Happiness exists, and I am capable of feeling it today when I firmly believed it was a sick myth before. You gave me a life. You have given me hope. There is nothing that matters more than that. I’ll end this with an example of drastic change this place has allowed me to make. Before CWC, I would’ve broken everything of value in this place and stolen that Range Rover just because you were stupid enough to try to help me. Today, I can write this letter.

Thank you, Jason, what you do does not go unnoticed.
