When I met David it was on my 40th birthday. At that point in my life it felt impossible not to drink and use drugs on a daily basis. I had gotten to the point where the momentum of my disease was threatening to end my life, and I was terrified and helpless. David had helped a couple of people I knew, and I reached out to him. Through my journey of discovery of into what I was contending with, David shepherded me in a way that was comprehensive, knowledgeable, and consistent. After a 30 day stay at a treatment center I began meeting with David on a weekly basis.
Through working with David I was introduced me to a series of people that kept me safe from myself. I discovered that 12 step recovery was the recommended treatment for what I was suffering from, and that I wasn’t alone in this world. Through his instruction, I began putting my life back together. He gave me insight into the effects of the substances I had looked to as medicine for life, and how to counteract them with healthy alternatives. I also learned the value of integrity, healthy living that included diet and exercise, self esteem, and being reliable. Through David I was introduced to my current employer by David, and I’ve never seen more success in my adult career.
David Gust is directly responsible for saving my life, and myself and my family will never forget that. He couldn’t come more highly recommended by me.
