First time detox at another facility for seven days. I admitted myself to Discovery for alcoholism. Words can not express the positive life time experience i have acquired within the three week of admittance. However, I feel its imperative to express. Upon arrival I was accordingly search, then assigned a room. The rooms are double and some have shared bathrooms. I guessed I lucked out and was assigned a room with my own bathroom and no roommate. The food (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)was above decent as well as the portions served. The staff from Admin to the hands on Techs were accordingly affable along with with being stern when needed. As one can imagine,order is a necessity to keep over 30 male addicts in order. My assigned Counselors were professional, knowledgeable and readily willing with providing me with further outside (Programs and Therapy, etc.)assistance after program completion if needed. The days are scheduled to the tee give or take. Personal time is included within the day as well. I had a choice to workout at the gym, play pool or relax and look at movies with the other clients. Most important for me were the scheduled group meeting along with the evening outside AA or NA speakers. Clients can sign up for outside evening meetings as well. Overall, checking into rehab is sobering, intimate and personal choice.
In addition: Twice a week clients are able to sign up and chosen to use the YMCA facility in a town (Swimming, Steam room, Hot tub, Gym, etc)
Truthfully, I've made one of the best decision I have ever chosen for myself. to date, I SURRENDER! Now I'm committed to put in the work thanks to Discovery Institute rehab. "One Day At a Time" GOOD LUCK!:)
The worst experience:
At night tech opens door hourly to check on you. With the announcement "ROOM CHECK!"
How is one suppose to sleep with that business. Sleep is extremely advised within the rehabilitation,recovery process. if so, then why they exercise this nonsense as a routine. I'm Baffled:(
