They also took the time to get to know my son and the situation my family was in. In doing so they were able to find the best treatment facility for my son. They helped us to locate the resources to get my son into treatment. We are so very thankful for all their knowledge and compassion in this complicated situationHolly, Concerned Mother
My family had pretty much given up on me because I had tried to quit 4-5 times over the past few years and had always started drinking within days. Well, soon it will be my 3rd year sober for me and it truly is a miracle. I am so grateful for my life today, and I will always be so thankful to HelpNest and everyone who played a part in my recovery!Jody, Alcoholic, Addict
I have recently returned to the treatment facility where I got sober. Only this time as an employee. I am now helping others who suffer from this terrible disease. Who would have thought it possible? There is hope. There is a solution. HelpNest will help, if you are willing.Shauna B. , Alcoholic
HelpNest gave me the hope, guidance and support I so desperately needed to face reality. Because of them, I can be clean and sober and live a happy carefree life today. I have my family back, but most of all, I’m back. It all starts with honesty and the willingness to make a change.Shauna B., Alcoholic
Helpnest didn’t just walk away, they continue to check on him and monitor his progress. We feel that our family has been saved due to the amazing efforts of this organization.Holly, Concerned Mother
[John from HelpNest] helped me decide what my plans were for after detox. John did all the calling, trying to setup my financing, setting everything up with the treatment center. John helped me get into a facility and also called and spoke to my family. It just amazed me that someone who didn’t even know me would go out of their way to help me like that.Jody, Alcoholic, Addict

Heather Apo has worked as a substance abuse counselor and has also done volunteer work in several recovery advocacy groups at the local and state level. She has worked with state politicians advocating for progressive treatment funding as well as for Prison reforms for addicts. She has knowledge of both real life and professional experience of the process of recovery. Heather believes that process is a design for living that takes time and guidance by people who have a mix of that experience. She states: “Recovery is not a journey that ends in 30-90 days, and it isn’t just a chance to get sober. It is the opportunity to change one’s lifestyle. I am an addict in recovery who was given the opportunity to earn back a life that is happy and productive. This happened because I had people that guided me along the way. I keep what I have by continuing to give back what was given to me. This is not only something I have learned by education or because I have letters behind my name; this is a solution I believe in strongly because I have lived it”.
