My boyfriend is in "recovery at this treatment center" currently. His counselor and case manager are very unprofessional. He has not taken any sort of responsibility being there for five weeks. People... more get to see a counselor one time a week there. They spend about 4 hours a day learning (still unclear about what is done the rest of time). His counselor tells him his problems are not that significant. Very unpleasant experience. I feel like this "treatment center" needs to be investigated and shut down. Do NOT waste your time. Please, if you or someone needs help, do your research!
I started using heroin 4 years ago. I’ve been to 5 different rehabs in that time. It would have been great if the first time I went to rehab worked for me and I stayed clean. That didn’t happen though... more and each time I relapsed it become harder and harder on my family to support me. I went to my first rehab when I was 17. It was a 6-month program and when I completed that program I honestly thought I’d be able to stay sober. I did everything I was supposed to do when I got home but the desire to use hadn’t gone away and at some point I just thought “screw it” and relapsed. For me, it was almost impossibly hard to stay clean when I wanted to get high. I’m sure other people are stronger than that and actually manage to stay sober when all they want to do is use. I wasn’t able to though. It was hard telling my parents that I relapsed because I wanted to get high. Telling them that I wanted to stay clean but also wanted to get high didn’t make any sense to them. They couldn’t understand it and I couldn’t explain what was happening in a way that they would be able to understand. Throughout the years I spent using they continued to help me get into rehab when I asked for help but as I relapsed after each program they stopped holding out any amount of hope that I’d have a future without drugs. I went to Choices last year and it was the best program I’ve ever been to. The people working there are incredible. Extremely kind and caring and they understood what I was going through in a way I hadn’t experience before. Going through the program there changed my life. Somewhere during my program the desire to use went away and the desire to life a full and complete life become truly important to me. I learned so much during my program at Choices and when I got home I was actually able to use what I’d learned to stay sober. Since going to Choices last year I’ve stayed sober. I’ve now been sober for 13 months and it’s amazing how easy it is for me. Every other program I’ve been to, trying to stay sober after was this crazy hard, almost impossible thing to do. Going to Choices made staying sober something I was able to do without a lot of hardship. Don’t get me wrong, going there wasn’t this magical experience where when I left I was just able to stay clean. I worked my butt off there doing my program and I still work hard at my sobriety. The difference is that it’s doable for me and I want to do the work involved with keeping myself clean. Since graduating from Choices and coming home my life has been so much better. My parents and I had a lot of problems when I was using. Obviously. Things are going so much better now. We’re communicating again. Slowly but surely I’m earning their trust back. I don’t know where I’d be if I hadn’t gone to Choices but, wherever it was wouldn’t have been good. It didn’t just save my life, going to Choices gave me a life that was worth living again.
Drinking has always been my downfall. it has taken every thing from me my family my friends my health. i have lost so many jobs due to drinking. my last time drinking i was so drunk i fell in my bathroom... more and hit my head on the sink. i almost killed myself i woke up in the hospital and that day i decided to reach out for help. a lovely lady gave me the number to this place and i left the next day when i was released for treatment. i did amazing in treatment i went in looking sick and i came out bigger and better. i gained my healthy weight back i worked out every day they have an awesome gym here.it helped ease my mind from the thought of drinking. i am happy i made the choice to get help here it was the best decision of my life. Life is precious; it’s a journey and a battle. I went through a lot and came out the other side a better man. It was not easy admitting I was imperfect and no one ever wants to feel “less than”. If you or someone you know is struggling, speak up and ask for help.Today, my life is truly amazing, I have real friends, an amazing girlfriend and a loving family back in my life.I was able to start my own business that gives back to families that don’t know where to turn to help someone that is struggling with addiction. I am able to enjoy the things in life that matter like relationships, happiness, love and joy. I have gotten back into sports, golf and other hobbies that I once loved.Don’t be afraid! Getting clean and sober is the best decision you will ever make! Reach out for help.
