My name is Aaron Altieri and I am 30 years old. I've been using drugs and alcohol since I was roughly 12 years old. I have had some periods of sobriety/recovery since being introduced to AA at age 18. Last time I was sober and involved heavily in AA was March 2018. At that time I had put together 15 months, had an excellent relationship with someone I met on my sobriety journey, was employed, had a lot of "things", was genuinely happy I could say. I had gone through my steps and was actively sponsoring. I had been sober other times but never that long and never that involved. Life was pretty good. I neglected something very important in my program however and instead of addressing it and growing I chose to ignore it and become defiant and lazy. I relapsed at 15 months of sobriety and over a year and a half lost everything I had worked so hard to gain in sobriety, all the things I had just began to put together as the foundation to my adult life. The love of my life left me, my career was crushed, I lost my cars and a lot of "things", was homeless briefly and found myself struggling with a huge amount of depression, guilt, shame, fear, and demoralization. I've been allowed to live at moms house briefly in the city I grew up in, Antelope Valley CA. It's a terrible situation. Mom doesn't want me around and struggles with her own mental illness making it virtually impossible to function day to day. I'm a dead man compared to who I used to be. I'm devastated every single day. I really want to be sober but really need a chance at a fresh start in a new environment if just one person will reach out and talk to me and hear my story and my willingness to change and move into a new life in a positive way. I'm very alone and I need help. I'm asking for help please. I'm requesting any information you may have on the Oxford Homes, your home. Just anyone who can point me in the right direction to find the right Oxford House for me. I have a little money put away for a bus ticket and some spending cash. I'll show someone who gives me a chance what I'm capable of sober. I can contribute and be of help and service but need some direction and a fresh start somewhere new. Please contact me with any info you have as soon as possible. It would be greatly appreciated from the bottom of my heart. I'm desperate. I'm not even sure how to get into an Oxford House but I heard that they have a good set up and reputation.
I opened the first Oxfords House in Bangor. Imagine my delight to see you are still there and thriving. It was not easy in those days. When I sought help from The Salvation Army, I was told people with Alcohoism could not take care of themselves I would love to hear from you.
