"I would recommend the substance abuse treatment program at Pax House to other people with substance abuse or addiction problems. The people at Pax are really helpful and display empathy, not sympathy. They truly understand what you are going through, and what you've been through. There are people here that have gone through recovery before you, which provides the opportunity to learn from others who know the tough path of recovery."
"I would definitely recommend the substance abuse treatment program at Pax House to others. Pax House helped me conquer my demons that led to my alcohol and drug addiction. My addiction treatment at Pax House enabled me to be a good father to my daughter, a good husband to my wife, a good brother to my younger brother, and a good son to my parents. It turned me into a role model to others in my life, and inspired them by showing that it is possible to overcome any obstacle in your life, if you put your mind to it. I’m forever indebted to Pax House, and will always hold the people there in a special place in my heart.”
"The message I would give to someone who is struggling with alcohol or drug abuse and searching for help is to enter a substance abuse treatment program in a place where you will feel comfortable. Find a place that will offer the things that you feel are going to help you during early recovery, such as counseling, psychiatrists on staff, nurses and therapists, and people on the recovery team that will actually help you and support you during this time."

"Today marks 6 years of sobriety for me. I am extremely humbled by how much I've learned about myself and the world, and how little I truly know. Sobriety for me is not difficult. However, I find that life in itself can be difficult. Regardless of my challenges and my triumphs, I remain vigilant on living to my fullest potential. Living a sober life has taught me to be kind, loving, and understanding. To see the innocent in people that harm me and others. I love my job, my friends, my family. I could not possibly imagine a better life."
"Before discovering Pax House my spirit was broken. I was a shell of a human, and I could not stop using drugs. I traveled from Oklahoma and began a new life at Pax House in August of 2014. They shared with me a different way of life, a beautiful way of life. I felt like I finally belonged and was understood. The amount of love and support I received was immense! Today I have 2 years and 5 months clean and I wouldn't trade my life in recovery for anything. I now work for Pax House and I get to pay it forward every day. It's a privilege to be a source of strength and support for another suffering addict. My life has purpose if I can make a difference in the life of just one addict."
"It's all about God, recovery and everything else is a blessing. When i get that confused is when I start getting in my own head. I'm thankful for the team that I have around me that holds me down. I'm thankful for everyone in my life that's made this possible for me to live free on a day to day basis. I love my family, I love my Pax house family, and my recovery family. I love you all."
