Kevin F. (~2 years ago)

Howdy! My name is Kevin F., and if you’ve come this far, read on, please! I came to Wits Inn after 10 years of a horrible addiction to meth. Pat and Loriann Witte helped me help myself change my life. Since getting treatment for my illness, I’ve not looked back. I have taken their message to heart. That was in 1997. Today, I’m clean and sober, having quit meth, alcohol, AND tobacco. Got my GED in ’06, and I’ve pulled my life together. You can too. I owe these guys SOOOO MUCH! I feel like they gave me my life back. Today, I’m a nurse, looking to give something back. I just want to again thank the Witte’s for everything, literally.
