A Different Kind of Change – Brittany’s Story
When asked what life was like before coming to Saint John’s, Brittany doesn’t hesitate to say,
“I was addicted and co-dependent in New York City.” She grew up in Sacramento and received a scholarship to the New York School of Film and Television, with her heart set on acting.
After graduating, she needed a job to pay for her lifestyle, one with the flexibility to accommodate auditions. Her job in the restaurant industry led her from casual drug use to a full blown addiction.

In 2017 she came back to Sacramento and entered the first of several rehab experiences. It was during this time that she was referred to Saint John’s. In August of 2020, Brittany walked through the red doors of Saint John’s Program for Real Change ready to find her purpose.
