"From one Champ to another - CCAT stands as a beacon to people who have lost their way . . . the real heroes are the staff and volunteers at CCAT!"
A letter from David, former Patient
"My sponsor tells me on a regular basis that gratitude is an action word. When I told him how grateful I am to the CCAT House and all the people who work there, he reminded me that if I was truly grateful, I would get into action. So, I'm taking this time to say to you all, thank you! I don't believe I'd ever be able to truly tell you how each and every one of you has touched my life."
A letter from Beverly, former Patient
"I came to CCAT on March Third. Thank God the doors were still open because they gave me back my life. I had been living in a crack house the past four months . . . I thought that I would die in the life of drugs . Today, I love life. CCAT has helped my family to learn about my addiction and has helped me with housing. I have a job, an apartment and I am a nursing student. Life is so good for me today. Thank you."
A letter from Claire, a Patient's Daughter
Dear Cat house and staff members:
Hi my name is Clara Marie. I am 11 years old and I am doing this on my own. I wanted to thank you guys for everything you did for my mom. My mom is Barbara. I have seen a lot of changes in my mom (good changes) from my mom being down there. Yes, I was upset about having to leave my mom but it did her some good, and I wanted to thank you for everything you guys have done for me, my mom and family. Your friend, Clara
A letter from Laurel, a Patient's Mother
"My daughter just graduated from your program last Friday night. You all have given back to me and my family the daughter that I remembered before she started doing drugs. No matter what I said, I couldn't understand where she was in her life, so I was of no help. Now that she has learned the tools she needed, she is better able to handle the problems of life. I know that this is just the beginning of a long road, but I have confidence that she will be able to stay true to herself. Please keep up the good work you do. You make such a difference in so many people's lives."
