As a consequence of focusing on what other people thought of me, rather than my relationship with God, I felt like I had lost control of my life. This inevitably led me down the dark and dangerous journey of my eating disorder. Bulimia was my addiction for 2 long and excruciating years. There wasn’t a month or even 2 weeks that would go by that I didn’t make myself purge. As time went on, I felt like there was no purpose to life...I wanted to die
and give up the hope I clung to so often in the past. The loneliness I felt was absolute. I felt like I was damaged beyond repair and was empty of emotions about God for so long." I felt the full force of God for the first time in my life. I started to read and understand our Father. I began to understand why we have rules He placed in our lives. They are not to stop us from living a fun life. They are designed to protect us from the emptiness of this world. He saved my from the waves I thought I would drown in.
SafeHaven believes in recognition in two forms. The first is bringing recognition to the world that people suffer from trials of all sorts, and each one is valid and should be honored. The second is that we ourselves must recognize our own trials, no matter how big or small they may seem, and then be willing to work towards changing the things that have a negative impact on our lives.

Resources vary greatly to include: coaching, community outreach, inpatient and outpatient treatment programs, harm reduction plans and kits, Narcan, financial budgeting and planning, counseling, peer group discussions, and many others.
