I love witnessing the miracles that happen here.

I love witnessing the miracles that happen here. So many miracles, from the smiling faces of the little ones that are full of joy to see the miracles in their loved ones, all the friends and family’s joyful moments to the lightness of the clients as they realize that they can be better.

No program can help a person who has not made a true commitment to a major life change. For my son, MVF offered a life-line that he was able to grasp. He has nothing but praise for the staff and the program, and he made friendships there that will endure.

My life was out of control for many years until I landed at Mountain Vista Farm in August of 2018, and have been sober ever since. The location is just as beautiful as the staff that helped me to start my recovery journey.

The farm opened the gateway to a future I never imagined.

I came to the farm in April of 99 after 23 years of drinking and 8 years on crank. I thought the only way to get sober or die. After hitting bottom and a night of trying both. I woke to that moment of clarity. I called a lot of spin drys and mountain vista farm was the only one that said come in now. With three days of white knuckling it, my wife drove me to the farm.

Had to pick feelings off a feeling chart every morning and I started getting cocky. I would come in singing feelings.

8-28-2018 I arrived at the farm. Today I am still sober and thankful for mountain vista farm. Also going back to school to finish my degree in counseling with an emphasis on substance abuse.
