- I'm John, and I had no idea when I ended up at New Life Center it would change my life the way it has. I was a drunk. I lost jobs, got divorced, didn't have much to do, so all I did was drink and watch TV. I was sitting here at McDonald's in the parking lot, and I was toying with the idea of either sticking a gun in my mouth and pulling the trigger, or jumping under a train. I called my sister and she showed up. She took me to New Life Center. It was the best thing that ever happened to me. While I was there, they found out I had cancer. I fought it, and they never slammed the door on me. They've never kicked me out. They were there to support me. I'm three and a half years sober now, have my own apartment, and life goes on. Life looks really good. I couldn't say anything more but great praise for New Life Center. They were so good to me.
