As a former resident of the How Foundation, you need to know some things. I went to them not only once, but three times. That's right, my addiction was that bad, but when I called they came for me. We worked hard, idle minds go to bad places. You need to realize that everyone there is a recovering addict, even Walter (Buddy) Teague. Every institution has problems, for the How to the US Government, but we make it work. At the time I was there, we supported 30-50 addicts keeping their minds off the things that brought them there. Some people leave with a bad taste in their mouths, I know, I did 2 times. The moral of the story is I sobered up, now 5+ years from meth and cocaine. I cannot give enough gratitude to the How Foundation, they helped to save my life. They also provide great services to the surrounding communities, and those who use their services are saints even though they may not know it. As far as a comment I read earlier of someone who said people of color are treated unfairly, put down the pipe and realize drugs are not prejiduce. Know that I have 5+ years and that I have to work at this everyday. I no longer blame others for my actions, I now face them and deal with them with dope to hide them. HOW is a great place and I will always stand by that.
