    • Morgan Sigle

      My name is Morgan Sigle. I was at Ascension House for about 8 months. When I first got there I hated it because I didn’t want to be sober, and I fought everybody on everything. I didn’t understand why having a chore was going to help keep me sober or why we had to go to meetings. I didn’t like that I had people telling me what to do either. Then one day it just clicked and I realized that all the things that I needed to do to stay sober and have a better life were the things I was fighting. Ascension house literally saved my life in every aspect. The staff is super sweet, loving and care for each one of their clients more than anywhere else I’ve ever been. Since leaving Acension house I have gone on to work a strong program and now I have 18 months sober. I could not thank Ascension enough for all that they have done and continue to do for me.
