I had lost everything. My kids are my life, and I couldn’t even see them, until I went to the Marjorie Oakley Home. At the Marjorie Oakley Home I was allowed to see my children as soon as I got there. We even had a birthday party for my oldest son. It was more than a home; it was a family. A family that will help you up and pull you through your darkest times. I don’t know what I would do or who I would be without them. It’s a constant support system. Just because you graduate the home, doesn’t mean they are done. They will always be there for you. I’m forever grateful for the Marjorie Oakley Home.
When I came to the Marjorie Oakley Home for Women I was lost, hopeless, and had no self-worth; but God knew what he was doing by sending me there. The staff is wonderful and loved me when I didn’t love myself. It gave me structure, which I hadn’t had in a very long time. The classes helped me learn about my addiction, how to overcome it and live a productive life, and brought God back into my life. I can proudly say I have 30 months clean and that is because of the Marjorie Oakley Home in the little town of Logan, WV took a chance with me. They truly saved my life and I’m forever grateful for that.
I lived in the men’s home for 8 months. New beginnings was by far the best place I could’ve went too for treatment. Faith based and just surrounded by great, loving and caring people. The classes are intense but worth every minute. I learned so much about addiction, accountability, responsibility and most importantly I learned that my God loves me and forgives me. You couldn’t ask for better staff or a better program. It’s not just a job. They genuinely care about you, your recovery and your success! Big thank you to everyone that was involved while I was there. I know they’ve grown and expanded so surely it can only keep getting better
I graduated the MOH for women January 2018. This program helped me so much! I came from Florida and moved to Logan West Virginia to start a new life. While I was in the program they helped me get my GED, and I am so happy to say that I am currently a college student! While going to college I took a class to become a certified recovery coach. While I was in the program I got closer with God and I was baptized in the river! Everyone in the program is so nice and they help you live a happy normal sober life. This program saved my life and I am so happy to say that I have a huge support group and family forever in Logan WV. They helped me look up, and I will never look back down!
I can’t say enough about the RGSWV. This organization has not only allowed me to stay clean but has given me a new direction in my life. I’ve always said you get out of any program the effort you put into it. I have to say the RGSWV from the board of directors all the way down to the staff has supported me %110 from the very beginning. Joey McComas, the Director and Lisa Sigman, the CES for the group are 2 of the most God fearing, selfless people I’ve ever met. They will go to the end of the earth and back for any of the residents in this program. Although, they have been put through the ringer several times from other residents in the past. They don’t allow that to affect the way they handle current residents. I truly admire both of them and appreciate the efforts they put forth on a daily basis. Its not just a job to either of them. They put their whole heart into this program and its residents and it should be recognized. Anytime or anywhere RGSWV you can call on me for anything and I’ll be there.
I am a graduate of this program it has changed my life for the better. I was an addict for most of my life I’m thirty now and this program has shown me how great life is and how much greater u can make it if u just continue to push yourself to reach goals and life by the word of God. There is not one thing I would change about this program, I couldn’t have ask to come to better place!! Because of all the help that they have provided me with I was able to work and save money and reach goals that I never thought was possible for me anymore, I have a home my own vehicle, great work ethic and great friends and an awesome church family! I’m originally from Charleston but I loved Logan county so much I decided to stay and start a new and better life here. So I want to thank each and everyone of the people involved with the Recovery Group all of you have shown me what’s it’s like to feel important and for changing my whole life around I love each and everyone of you I couldn’t ask for better people to call my new found family!!
I would like to take a minute to just thank the Recovery Group for saving my life! The eighth months I spent there away from my family and precious peanut, was definitely worth it. Going in to the program, I was very stubborn and had no life goals or structure. Today I put God first, and appreciate everyday. I’ve grown up so much and don’t think I would of came this far if it wasn’t for the recovery home. I would also like to add- sometimes the quiet ones you don’t think care or aren’t listening are the ones listening the most!
