No Longer Looking Over My Shoulder

“From alcohol to heroin, from the crack pipe to the syringe and from petty theft to aggravated robbery. I was focused solely on myself and what I wanted. That was a battle fought with many failures. I was broke, busted, and disgusted of who I was and what I had become.”

Jeremy Long, Men’s Admission Director | 513.248.0452 Ext. 102
