To whom it may concern; As I start my new journey upon this road we call life, my thoughts and deepest gratitude navigate back to Mirror Lake Recovery Center. After years of drug use and numerous attempts of staying sober, I decided treatment was needed. Little did I know I would find my life. The admission was so warming and inviting I knew my ship had found a safe haven at last. The nursing staff took care of my every need with love, hope, and compassion. I was never a stranger within their warming smiles and complete professionalism. After moving into the cabins I was then surrounded by the greatest TECH personnel I was privileged to get to know. Ethan, Coral, Crockett used their love for their jobs and patients in a way that called for rigorous honesty. A truth I had to confess a number of times. I owe my integrity, honesty and willingness unto them who manifested the same in their life not only as an employee but as a person as well. As my tears run down my face, who would of ever imagined I would be deemed worthy enough to write a review. Unto the alcoholic and addict who is still suffering I pray that when your soul is lost at sea thru the waves of addiction Mirror Lake Recovery Center would be your choice. They have so much to offer and stand ready to bring you home. With the BEST TRAINED STAFF AND HEART OF LOVE I HAVE EVER BEEN BLESSED TO ENCOUNTER, My life is worth living and I am somebody. Rebecca, Courtney, April, Michelle, Keke, Big Lou, Seabreezy, Bethany and Mrs. Jessica ; I will miss your love, understanding and fellowship as I journey this road of recovery. Jessica, May the Lord richly bless and keep Mirror Lake Recovery Center in the forefront of reaching out into the misery of addiction and restoring a broken life back into the solace of recovery. Administration and staff, Thanks for your belief, motivation, and ability to pick me up from such misery and defeat restoring unto me life and instilling within myself the reality of the man I truly am. With love, honor and respect, Mr. Michael
In 1982, it became apparent that the Middle Tennessee area was facing a real-and urgent- need for additional facilities for the care and treament of alcoholism. Alcoholics in this area were facing the dilemma of “no room at the inn.” Existing beds always seemed to be full. Demand for services was rising steadily. Yet, there were no plans
build any new facilities anywhere in the region. Moe Holloran recognizing this need, the New Life Foundation, newly chartered as a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation, stepped forward with courage and faith to accept the challenge to build and operate a new treatment center for alcoholics. Within less than a year, this new center- New Life Lodge- became a reality.
