Case Studies

Katy – Graduate
I am 34 years old and I started using methamphetamine at the age of 23. I was in an abusive relationship and had two children at the time. It was when I finally decided to leave my children’s father that I started using drugs. This went on for nearly 10 years. I had left my children with family members, and been in and out of jail more times than I care to recall, all for drug charges. Finally, at the age of 31, I was offered the chance at treatment through the Drug Court system. I did go, and I completed their program, however I was unable to remain sober. After another miserable year of relapsing and jail time, Drug Court offered me one last chance. The Pat Moore Foundation came and picked me up from jail. I was so sick of going to jail and feeling the way that I did, and I quickly fell in love with the Pat Moore Foundation and their staff. They helped me tremendously; from the groups, to the counselors, to the family style eating. I found so much love, acceptance and structure there. I learned lifeskills like how to talk about things and work through them instead of running from them, how to be accountable and how to forgive others including myself.
I am proud to say that I have over 2 years sober, I work a full time job, I have a relationship with my children, graduated the Drug Court system, and I am off probation for the first time in 14 years. I am so grateful to the Pat Moore Foundation for saving my life and giving my children back their mother.

I am 36 years old and started drinking and using at the age of 13. My drug addiction progressed rapidly when I was 26 years old. My mother died of alcohol related problems, my brother committed suicide, and I lost a child at 8 months pregnant. It was then that I began using methamphetamines on a regular basis along with the vicodin that I had already been addicted to for several years.
In 1999 I went into treatment because my husband threatened to leave me and take full custody of our son. Since then I have made several attempts to get clean. It wasn’t until I lost everyone and everything that I finally surrendered. I found myself in jail with no money and no one to call. I was looking at 3 years in prison, and by the grace of God, I was given one last chance. My sentence was to do 90 days in jail and 6 months in treatment.
Broken, hopeless, and alone, I called Phil Allen and he promised to save me a bed. I stayed at the Pat Moore Foundation for 6 months, and I have been clean and sober for over a year. I love the Pat Moore Foundation for saving my life.
