The backgrounds of the three women are similar: curious about alcohol, they began drinking at an early age, soon were doing drugs, got into scrapes with the law, and hit rock bottom several times.

Two of the women lost their children, one of them permanently.

In their 30s now, the women have one more thing in common, this one something positive: they all received treatment at Alpha Home, a residential and outpatient drug and alcohol rehab center, that they say turned their lives around.

“Alpha Home is a place where women and men get another chance at life,’’ said CEO Angela White. “The opportunity to be the mom, dad, brother, and/or sister they always wanted to be. Alpha Home provides the tools that allow people to learn to live a life in long-term recovery.”
