Stories of Safe Harbor: Shawn
"I suffered from mental health issues for many years and kinda worked myself into a drug addiction. I didn't take medication; I didn't have any insurance, so the drugs really enabled me to get myself away from the mental health and kinda cure the pain a bit. But it didn't work, and I got myself into a habit of drug addiction and it ultimately landed me in Northampton County prison for a year, but there, I had a little bit of time to collect my thoughts. I made my Narcotics Anonymous meetings once a night and my church meetings once a night. Then I got discharged to Safe Harbor, and I had this structure built around me and could utilize every service I was possibly given. For a whole entire year I stayed here, from January 17th up until December ninth, and for a whole entire year, I did everything I had to do to get myself into a good balance and built myself a lot of good, established connections, and it ultimately landed me a house manager position for my work ethic, dedication, and heart."
