Transcript of Anthony's My New Beginning Testimonial
My name is Anthony. My story began at what I perceive was my rock
bottom. I felt like I was trapped, stuck, and unable to break my cycle
of behaviors, but most of all, I felt alone. I was in a vicious pattern
of behavior where it consumed my time, my attention, and my mind. I was
living a life I knew I didn't want for myself with no clue on how to get
out. I was fighting a battle I could not win, not realizing it was an
unfair fight. I tried time and time again to do it by myself, and time
and time again, I failed. In turn, I spiraled deeper and deeper into my
addiction. I knew something had to change.
It was time for my new
beginning. I came to Montana and "New Beginning Ranch" with the hope that I
would find a way to break my cycle of addiction.
I left with not only
the knowledge of how to overcome my addiction but a new outlook and
perspective on living my life. Morning meditations, community meetings,
group therapy, and family dinners started to bring a sense of friendship
and community into my life with people that were going through the same
struggles. I was not alone.
From the moment Tom Martin picked me up
from the airport, I knew that I had people on my side to help me get
through my dark days. Recovery is a continuous process. Two steps
forward, one step back. Some days will feel life-changing. Other days,
will feel like you are back at day one.
"New Beginning Ranch" gave me
the tools to deal with the day-to-day challenges and how to live life
the way I want to live on my own terms. It also helped me build
friendships and bonds that I can rely on to help me continue my
recovery. It gave me a chance to begin again.

Transcript of Jon's My New Beginning Testimonial
My name is Jon and I live in Wenatchee, Washington. It is with gratitude
that I look back on my stay at New Beginning Ranch. A little over two
years ago, I had no space in my heart for gratitude. At that time, my
life was consumed with addictive sexual behavior. I was living in
constant betrayal of family and friends. I had to admit to myself and to
God that I was morally corrupt and spiritually bankrupt. Through
friends and a fine therapist, I found my way to New Beginning Ranch at
Corvallis, Montana, aptly named for that was where I found my new
I found an atmosphere of caring and personal attention to my
recovery objectives. The therapy model brought new understanding to what
I had thought to be a hopeless situation. From early morning prayer and
meditation through daily group sessions, I found myself discovering
insights that have literally changed my life. That feeling of guilt and
shame no longer rule my life. I have been able to truly turn my life
over to a higher power whom I refer to as God.
Today, I'm able to offer
truth, faithfulness, and transparency to others in general, and
especially to my wife. For the first time in my life, I have the ability
to enter into a truly intimate relationship. I thank God for directing
me to Tom Martin and New Beginning Ranch.
