After seven years of solid sobriety God blessed us with the opportunity to purchase property in Tennessee on English Mountain. This property was to become English Mountain Recovery (EMR). The 27 acres of property had once been a resort that had been closed for many years. English Mountain had been host to many dignitaries including U.S. Congressmen and President Theodore Roosevelt.
There were 28 condominiums, a dining hall, putt-putt golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, a barn and several other large buildings on the property. Best of all, the property was on top of a mountain, loaded with history, 3800 feet above sea level, 5 miles up the most beautiful road one could imagine.
Nancy no longer asks, “why am I an alcoholic?” because it doesn’t matter why. This has all happened through her treatment center, a 12 step recovery program, and the grace of a higher power, something bigger than ourselves. Today Nancy considers it a blessing to have a brand new life and to finally become the person she was supposed to be. To be alive today is a miracle and to be living a peaceful abundant life is certainly a spiritual gift she could not have attained alone.
Today both Nancy and I are living a life of gratitude and intent on helping the next suffering alcoholic / drug addict. Our desire is to afford you the help that was passed on to us.
Dick and Nancy K.
