My Rehab Experience

Why go into Rehab?

It reminds me of the Amy Winehouse song saying, “They tried to make me go to rehab and I said no no no.”  That’s how I was.  Going into it kicking and screaming.  Oh, my family had the dreaded “Talk,” with me.  Maybe the best and worst experience of my life.  Having to hear how my addition had severely hurt those I truly care about.

The good was that it awoke me to the reality of what I was doing to my family.  I looked up drug addition and addiction recovery.  I found a rehab clinic  by a simply search in google.

I called the number and was afraid of the judgement and persecution that would come with the call.  However, there was no judgement.  Instead I was treated with respect and privacy.  I was not another number, but was someone to be valued.

Is there hope for me?

You may be asking if there is hope for your situation and the answer is YES!  There is always hope as long as your heart is beating and your brain is working.  It means you are alive and that you absolutely deserve help.

What’s the secret to Rehab?

There is no secret sauce.  You just have to have the courage to pick up the phone and call.  To let go of the self hate and abuse.  To decide that you want something better for yourself and those you love.  Don’t talk yourself out of doing the right thing.
