Kenneth had attempted completion of a 30-day treatment program at Forbell Men's Shelter before embracing his road to recovery. Sitting in the shelter for six weeks with a broken ankle, he had nothing but time to focus on his life and treatment.

"The turning point came when I started talking about my mother's death in group therapy. After 30 years, I was finally able to begin grieving," he explained. Several years after completing the program, Kenneth returned to Forbell – but this time as a Security Counselor. Through a series of promotions and successes, he eventually served as the Supervisor of Staff.
