Show More

His addiction to heroine took him to an incredibly dark place in his life. He heard about MentorWorks and Redwood Recovery from some of his prison mates and decided to do all he could to get here. James had participated in many, many treatment and recovery programs over the years. He said our approach of love, kindness, respect of each individual’s free will, and our approach to accountability was different than any other program he had ever been a part of. “I know for a fact that I’m loved here. I’ve seen you guys (the staff) cry over us, pray over us. I’ve never seen that in a program before.” He learned that baby steps, not everything all at once, is what helped him get his life back together and what will continue to help him as he moves forward. He is currently building back the trust of his family; he gets to speak to them, which is something he worked so hard to accomplish. He can now recognize his bad moods and has found positive coping methods to help keep him sober for the rest of his life.

Brigham S.

May 2018

Brigham has had a fair share of life with his own difficulties even though he grew up in the Latter Day Saint faith which is something He is very grateful for.  After losing his father at a young age, his life never really was the same. 

Show More

His heartaches and inability of understanding how to overcome such, lead me to making many bad decisions of robbing, stealing, and manipulating others including taking meth and heroin drugs that fell into an addiction. Mentor works is a gospel principal centered program that provides a hopeful pathway towards recovery in transition. It teaches and provides a way to endure and overcome. It aids any in need of a transition, to learn and grow, into our good better and best selves. Throughout His life, Brigham made choices without some knowledge and understanding of the atonement and teachings of the Latter Day Saint faith.  With the mentor works program to fall back on those principles, He would have lost any hope in himself.  He claims that he regretfully did many things and other sinful law breaking actions in which lead to his incarceration.  He is grateful for this Foundation because of the correction and the safety it provided.
