I hated Gaudenzia while I was there. It was the hardest 4 months of my life. It wasn\'t until I completed the program and moved to a recovery house that I realized just how much Gaudenzia helped me. The biggest thing I earned at Gaudenzia was an incredibly strong foundation. It is because of that foundation that I have 21 months clean today, something I\'ve never had before. It was clean and the food was ok. I laughed, cried and healed at Gaudenzia. Of course it was hard but if it was easy everyone would do it!
