"I've been an addict
Who is out of control
Enslaved by a habit
Taking charge of my soul.
Not an addict on drugs
Like crack cocaine
But one of emotions
Full of misery and pain.
For bitterness and anger
Are addictions too.
Like excess of wine
And hard liquor too.
I've looked into my heart
This part that I've been playing
And radical changes must be made
At once, without delaying.
The solution lies waiting
Within my reach
In the hands of those
Who strive to teach.
The cycles of violence
Must surely end
Before I lose a loved one
Or, perhaps my closest friend."
(Domestic Violence Client)
"It (the program) was extremely helpful to me in dealing with all aspects of my life, not only the situation that led to my arrest." (P.E.A.C.E Program)
"(The Instructor) explained everything so intelligently. The class was not boring or uninteresting. I also feel that I was not there to be judged or ridiculed, but to be educated.

"Isolation and drinking
Two old friends of mine
Now to say goodbye
I'm moving on, it's the time.
How hard it is to let go
Even when I was low
You were always there for me
But never let me free.
Holding in my anger and fears
Drowning them with alcohol tears
Never letting out what is felt inside
My feelings remained there til they died.
A slow death it is indeed
Taking along the best of me
Isolation, you had your part
Keeping me captive in the dark.
Farewell to you, isolation and drinking
No longer do I want your dark thinking
I'm better off without your friendship
It's time to say goodbye."
