“My son passed away; he was in addiction. I threw my medication away and said I’d go out the same way. The whole reality of losing my son was really hard for me; that depression is something serious.” “The Haven (Counseling Services) is what really helped me to get to the point where I could find myself again, to get stable in my mind and in my thinking to do this thing, to live life on life’s terms in a way that I did not have to use a drug or alcohol.” “I’m so thankful today that I was able to have enough sense to pick up and ask for help; because I lost that during the tragic events and bad choices that I made in my life. All of this has been so lifesaving for me in an aspect to where had I not known, had I not found out about Good Samaritan, I might not be alive today.”
I don’t know where I’d be right now without the care I’ve received from Good Samaritan. Between premiums and deductibles, I would not have been able to afford my insulin and diabetic medications, blood work, or even be seen. I don’t know what could have happened to me. It was a life saver and a blessing.
My husband had been sick for 8 weeks before he finally went to ER. He had fluid on his heart and his heart rate was over 300. He was dying. My husband is a diabetic, has high BP, high cholesterol, and is on heart medicine. While we were at the hospital, we found out about GSC. We both filled out the paperwork to be a patient. I wasn’t sick but went ahead and applied just in case. I’m glad I did. Last month, I got sick and was able to be seen in the Clinic right away. My husband is doing much better. He now comes regularly to Good Samaritan for visits and takes his medicine like he’s supposed to. We are thankful for Good Samaritan because without them, we would not be able to afford the medicines. Good Samaritan is a life saver, and I would recommend to anyone who does not have insurance.
