Client Spotlight: Rebecca

"In 2013 I had moved to Maryland with desperation for a much-needed change in my life. Unwilling to fully surrender to my addiction I was lost and hopeless. My husband had just died resulting from a fatal overdose and with devastation in my heart I used drugs to cope. My life had become unmanageable to the point where I felt rock bottom had a basement. After successfully entering and completing treatment, I contacted The Light House and was accepted into the B.E.S.T. Culinary Program. I finally had career goals and my path made sense. Contacting The Light House was one of the best decisions I had made in a long time. I had the opportunity to learn and give back to others in need at the same time. That feeling was priceless…

"Thank you to The Light House for being a foundation to build on, to the volunteers for providing their time to a place of hope, and to the residents for showing me that no matter what obstacles you may be faced with, there’s always something to be grateful for...The Light House and B.E.S.T. Program have shown me that anything is possible if you are open minded and willing to learn. It can be done, I just did it!" - Rebecca, B.E.S.T. Culinary Graduate
