Sonya’s Story

I am a 33-year-old recovering addict.


My story is one of hope, love, and trust.  On September 12 I went into rehab after using drugs for 7 years.  My two children had been out of my care for a little over one year.  I did three months of rehab then transitioned to Lily House.


One week later my 13-year-old daughter was restored to me and joined me.


After a life with no love or trust I now have a job, am about to start university, a happy 13-year-old in my care, who I have an amazing, loving relationship with and one child who I am still working on reuniting with.  Lily House has supported and loved me back to life.  They have also helped me back into my role as a mother and a functioning, successful, member of society.


I now have hope and trust that the future for both myself and my children will be nothing short of amazing, and when it is time to leave Lily House, I will be forever grateful for the opportunity and support they have given our family!
