Michelle was born and raised in Melrose, MA, where she attended high school. She has four siblings and was active in sports all through school. She started drinking and drugging as a teenager. She moved to Florida in 1992, has three adult children, and recently became a grandmother. In 2008, something triggered a repressed childhood trauma and her addiction took off. She took legal steps to report her abuser and founded a website which helped other girls to come forward and report what happened to them. Unfortunately the man couldn’t be held accountable and when there was no closure, Michelle went downhill.

She drank heavily for 3 years then had a suicide attempt. This is when her road to recovery began. She went to treatment for her trauma and alcoholism, and for the first time in her life, she began to heal from her past. When she first arrived in AA, she did what the old timers told her to do. She went to AA meetings every day, often several a day! She got a sponsor and slowly worked the steps. When she was 90 days sober, friends asked her if she really needed to go to meetings every day and she said she loved going to meetings. She didn’t think however that she was going to be friends with the people at A.A. Now, almost every friend she has is a member of AA. She has had big losses in sobriety, large challenges and NEVER felt the need to drink or drug. With the program of Alcoholics Anonymous, she says she has learned to really live life. She has learned to be a mother, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a hard worker, and a responsible trustworthy member of society, all with grace and dignity.

Alea is the Senior Resident staff member at our sober homes West Palm Beach facilities. She was born in Georgia and raised in Texas, where she went to high school. Alea was a swimmer, dancer and cheerleader growing up in Austin. She has twin adult daughters that live on the west coast of Florida. She is known to be a huge prankster and likes going to the movies, reading and traveling.

Alea’s struggle with addiction came later in life when she was involved in an accident, which resulted in necessary back surgery. That in turn led her to a pain management doctor who prescribed her large amounts of strong pain medications. Unknowingly, she trusted the physician knew what he was doing when prescribing these medications to her. She took what was prescribed until she crossed that threshold (again like many of us) and began to abuse them, which led her onto the path of addiction. Her whole life spiraled out of control. She became a mother who was absent while being present, a wife that was unavailable, a selfish friend, an unreliable employee, and a prisoner to this disease.

Transition to Edna's Sober Homes West Palm Beach, Florida

Alea attended inpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment multiple times. First with the support of her family, and then without it, because she didn’t want to take the aftercare recommendation. Without practicing the principals of NA/AA, rarely going to meetings and not having a sponsor, Alea relapsed, which was inevitable. After Alea’s last inpatient, she followed the direction of an aftercare plan, moved to the east coast of Florida, enrolled in an outpatient program.

They challenged her to move into a halfway house, or our sober homes West Palm Beach, Florida location for three months. She was reluctant because all she knew about sober homes was what she had seen on tv. Alea toured a couple of homes and chose Edna’s Sober House which she says has ended up being one of the best decisions she has ever made. In the first three months after coming to Edna’s, Alea experienced some of the worst times of her life, but she stayed at Edna’s because it had become her safe haven.

House Mom at Our Sober Homes West Palm Beach Facility

Overtime, Alea became our house mom at our sober homes West Palm Beach rehabilitation facility. Here she has has many critically important responsibilities. She helps anyone new to the house get acclimated to the house and to our local AA/NA. She knows everyone’s schedule, their regular meetings and encourages group cooking for the fun. She says her position keeps her grounded and accountable not just to herself, but to the ladies who live here too. She has celebrated her third year of sobriety while living at Edna’s.

Alea learned to embrace the program of recovery and has met some great people along this journey called sobriety. Because she is working a program and staying sober, she has reconnected with her daughters which has produced the most amazing relationship for her. She’s traveled to Cuba, Bermuda and Alaska in sobriety. Sure, she’s had rough times in her life since getting sober, but she is grateful, present, transparent, and just kind. She loves being at Edna’s sober homes West Palm Beach and feels it has definitely saved her life. We feel blessed to have her on our team and with us for more than three years now.
