Hickory House Recovery Alumni Spotlight: Lorri

Lorri has spent her entire life taking care of others, but when the nurse of 40 years needed to get help for herself, she wasn’t sure where to turn.

Thankfully, her co-worker stepped in to offer support and began searching for treatment providers. While researching, she discovered Hickory House Recovery and felt it was a good option. Lorri came to Hickory House on January 7, 2022, and immediately appreciated how patient and supportive everyone was.

“I went to Hickory House pretty broken in all aspects of my life,” said Lorri. “I was lost.”

Feeling as though she needed a bit more time to work on herself, Lorri opted to stay at Hickory House for nearly 60 days, something she believes was vital to her success in recovery.

“When I left, I had a confidence that continued to bloom long after, especially during IOP,” shared Lorri. “I learned so much about my personality, my defects, and how to cope with life in general.”

According to Lorri, the staff at Hickory House made her feel right at home. She still makes it a point to stay in touch, as the team members were pivotal in her and her family’s life. 

“I will never forget the staff and my stay there,” she said. “It changed me for the good.”

Today, Lorri is 58 years old and feels better than ever. She continues her work as a nurse but works only three days a week, allowing time for friends, family and travel. Lorri says she’s not sure where she would be without the help of Hickory House and is thankful for the program. 

“Hickory House most definitely saved my life in more ways than one, and I thank them for that.”
