Watson House Jun. 2011- Jan. 2012

"I moved into the house on Watson after 5 months of inpatient treatment and instantly knew that I was right at home. At 19 years old and hundreds of miles from home, I didn't know how to live on my own. Even the simplest tasks of doing my laundry and cooking dinner were daunting. In my time at the house, I learned not only how to take care of myself, but I found out what it means to be a good friend and a good sister in recovery.

It seemed that every night I was being rallied up by the girls I was living with to go to a meeting or go out and see a movie. I don't think I have laughed as much or as often as I did while living in that house. Because of the time I spent at the Watson House, I know how to live a happy and healthy life in sobriety, and the friendships that I have maintained from the house will always be held close to my heart. I would recommend St. Paul Sober Living to anyone and am so grateful that a program like it exists."
