My name is Mark S. I left treatment in May 2002 after being in rehab with Sober Living by the Sea for 9 months.
My sobriety date is 8/31/01. I hope you can pass along to everyone in that program how incredible my life is now.
More about my success: After I left Sober Living by the Sea, I transferred to Chapman University where I graduated in December of 2006 with a B.S. in Psychobiology (including Psychology Department Honor Rool and Deans List Honor).
My graduating GPA was 3.89 which is amazing considering that I was kicked out of Indiana University with a 0.89 GPA for three semesters worth of work. I took the LSAT and did quite well. I was accepted to USC Gould School of Law where I am currently studying.
I used to go to the alumni meeting every week; as a matter of fact, I was the secretary of that meeting for 6 months or so. Now that I’ve moved to LA don’t get into town much. I will be in town to take my 8 year chip at the Charle Street Meeting. Maybe I’ll stop by Sober Living by the Sea.
That’s all I’ve got for now, just checking in. Say hi to Johnny O, Chris Swanberg, and anyone else who’s been there since 2001.
