YMCA raises funds for HVAFFebruary 24, 2017
Eric B. was in the United States Army Reserves from 1983- 1987. He worked as a combat engineer doing construction type projects. Eric lost his apartment and couch surfed at family members’ homes for 8 months. He was addicted to cocaine and completed the detox treatment at The Salvation Army Harbor Light and was sober for a little over a year. His rock bottom point was when he experienced suicidal tendencies. The VA hospital took him in for several days and referred him to HVAF. Eric started the program in March 2016 and finished up in January 2017. HVAF helped set the foundation for Eric’s recovery. He feels mentally, physically and spiritually better than he has in a long time. HVAF transformed his life and brought him closer to God, according to Eric. Eric currently works for My City Transportation in Indianapolis 6 days a week. He resides at Lucille Raines, a sober living environment, where he attends three to four meetings a week.
