Catastrophe StrikesWreckage, catastrophe, and carnage create the wake behind the life of alcoholism I’ve been riding for twenty years now. Yes, there have been periods of sobriety, yes, there have been moments of reprieve. Yet even these were at best a wobbly walk on the beam.
Finding Help in BoyneRecovery is not a solo project though. I’ve attempted to tread that path with individual grit only to find myself flat on my back again. Fellowship, community, and a desire for a sober life led me to begin a search for help. I knew I needed an environment in which recovery would be facilitated, required, and encouraged. Of the places I looked I found one that had those components and more. Nathan’s House, a recovery residence for men located in Boyne City, Michigan.
What There is to OfferNathan’s house was founded to provide a way to sobriety that would open a door for men to find life outside addiction. To help men like me avoid the bitter and inevitable end of this malicious disease, prison or the grave. My attraction was not only it’s mission but the community around the home. Boyne City is a magical Northern Michigan paradise. Beautiful Lake Charlevoix, pine forests, and lush natural scenery surround the town.
