Ryan’s testimony is powerful.  He started drinking at age 20 and felt that alcohol took away every struggle he was experiencing in his life.  For twenty years he suffered on his own with bouts of heavy drinking.

“Eventually I lost everything – my wife, my child, my house, my car – everything,” Ryan says.  “I was hanging on by a thread.  I was ready to die – ready to be done.”

His mother took him into her home where they prayed.  She suggested searching for Christian rehab facilities.  Revive is the first one that came up.

“It was a God thing.  I called and they said they wanted to get me in tomorrow,” says Ryan.  He packed up and moved into the Unity House the next day.

Ryan explains the structure and support changed how he viewed himself and felt about himself.  For the first time in a long time, he felt that someone actually cared about him.  “Horizon allowed me to see who I am,” says Ryan.  This was the key to changing his life and finding recovery.

We are so thankful that Ryan came to Revive to find this hope.  Listen to the full story in his own word:
