Success Stories

A senior moment

A senior citizen in our Social Detox program said he wanted to leave and go back to his apartment across the street. We convinced him to stay for at least Intermediate care so we could try to help with the addiction to alcohol.

The extra effort

A young lady came to Mirror Residential in Newton. She is a type II diabetic and she did not have insurance or medications. Her medications are expensive and Mirror was not able to pay for them for her. We had contacted Health Ministries to see if they could help and they did not have any appointments until the next week.

Jack

Jack came in for his intake session still shaking and trembling from withdrawal from alcohol. He was barely able to sign his name and was tearful as he told his story. He told of how he had been sober for 4 years but had relapsed 2 years ago and was unable to stop drinking on his own. He had lost his job, home and his family and was on the verge of drinking himself to death.
