After years of trying to help my son battle his emotions and addictions I finally have peace. If you have a loved one that is suffering you know the anxiety; trying different treatment options, medications, therapies, anything anyone said would help, without lasting results. You pray every day to end their pain and yours, in a healthy way, hoping, and trying to have faith. My prayers have been answered. Steve and Robyn Hornik, their company, and their compassion have allowed me to sleep at night knowing my son is, and will be O.K. Though my son is legally an adult, he could not make appropriate choices for himself, no matter what treatment he was in, I waited for the other shoe to drop, never fully alive myself. The peace and gratitude I have for these people and the dedication they have to helping individuals not only overcome addictions but heal and grow as individuals cannot truly be put into words. When you or your loved one knows that it is time, this is the only way to go.
A grateful and loving mother,
Steve Hornik and his company, Drug Help Line, didn’t just help save my life from the horrors of active addiction: he helped me find a life beyond my wildest dreams. I was broken, lost, filled with hate, guilt, shame, anger, and getting high with my pregnant girlfriend. The baby was less than six months from being born, and I saw no hope for our future. I had all but given up with nowhere else to turn, so I called Steve. Not only did he help me, but he helped my girlfriend as well, and went above and beyond to help my family. He flew us back to Florida, got us into treatment, and helped me afterwards as well. He and his wife opened their home to me. He showed me how to live again, to love again, and how to be a man of honor and faith. Steve saved our lives and gave me a life with my son who was born perfectly healthy and happy. I would never have found the joy of recovery if it was not for Steve and the selfless work he does. He truly is an inspiration and a prime example of how this program works. A year prior to my treatment, he helped my brother who is still clean today and then my sister a few months after me. My whole family has been saved by the love and kindness of Steve. My mother can finally sleep at night, and I can at last look in the mirror, smile, and be proud of the man I see looking back at me.
I had been in and out of treatment for years, never finding anyone that I thought genuinely cared. I am truly blessed to have had Steve Hornik placed in my life because when I was ready, Steve was there! He promptly found a treatment facility for me to attend and organized my transportation to the site. The treatment that I received was top-notch and, I believe, a substantial reason for why I am still clean today. Steve not only cared about me as a client, but also as a person. Getting clean is stressful enough; a person shouldn’t have to have the added pressure of finding treatment and transportation. With Steve, you don’t have the added stress that comes with getting clean. The only thing I had to do was be willing to attend treatment; Steve took care of the rest. To this day I stay in touch with him. He showed me that he was concerned with far more than just getting me into treatment; he wanted me to have my life back.
Have you ever been walking through a store, see something you like, and then, all of the sudden you buy it? Imagine that feeling every second, of every hour, of every day. Except instead of the store, you’re in the projects, and instead of a couch or TV you’re buying, it’s drugs. That was my life for over six years.
Every morning I would wake up sweating. The only thing my mind focused on was how to get the next high. I had no self-worth, no self-esteem, and no love for myself. In all, I didn’t have myself.
Today, all of that is behind me. I know what I deserve in life, which isn’t about the destination; it’s about the journey. With the lessons I learned with the help of treatment, I know life is worth living. They didn’t just help me get my life back, they blessed me with the opportunity for a new beginning. For that, I thank Drug Help Line.
I’ve gone to four different treatment centers, always trying to beat my addiction. I thought no one truly cared about me or had my best interest at heart, until I met Steve. Along with Drug Help Line, Steve helped guide me through this whole process of recovery, providing me a flight down to Florida and transportation from the airport to the treatment center. He helped bring peace of mind to my family, knowing that I was in a safe place. He gave me encouragement and hope before I went to treatment, support and guidance while I was in treatment, and to this day he continues to show me love, support, and guidance. Before treatment, I felt like a hopeless addict with death being the only way out of my addiction. Today, I live my life clean, serene, and happy. I’m a son to my parents, a brother to my siblings, and a true friend. I am so grateful to Steve and Drug Help Line for putting their hands out to me in my darkest times and pulling me out of the grips of my disease. I had a second chance, and now I actually live my life to the fullest each day.
My family and I are so grateful to Steve for helping us find just the right place for a family member in need of treatment. We were at a crisis point in placing her in the right program. Steve got it done! He is a caring and dedicated individual whose true purpose is to help others. I work in the field and have seen both sides. I would highly recommend Steve for anyone seeking help with placing someone in a treatment program.
