Smart recovery was offered here and I was so incredibly happy about that. For anyone who does not know what smart recovery is it uses researched based methods to assist with addictive behaviors. it is more if a self-knowledge and self-empowerment type of course and I highly recommend that you give it a try if you are able. By being an active drug and alcohol user I lacked a great deal of motivation and it was nearly impossible for me to want to care about doing anything. This helped me to cope with my urges of using and feeling the need to use like clock work and By managing my thoughts and feelings I was able to drastically control my dangerous and daring behaviors and learn how to lived a well balanced life. You see when you really try to overcome something and you know that there is more that you could be doing with your life you tend to see great things that can be in store for you. It was hard and trying at times and I felt like giving up sometimes because I did not think I had it in me, but I kept on pushing through it and I am so proud that I am able to stand here today knowing that because of my accomplishments and hard work and determination I was able to start a whole knew fulfilling life.
Every aspect of my life has improved since I went to A Forever Recovery. My dad and I have had a pretty strained relationship ever since I started using when I was 16. I love my dad and have always wanted to mend our relationship. The problem was that I couldn’t stay clean. We’d go out to lunch or dinner and he’d be wondering the whole time if I was getting high. When I would see high sober he never trusted that it was something that would last. It sucked not having his trust but the truth is I didn’t trust myself to stay clean so really, it’s not as if my dad could. I hate going to rehab. I mean everyone does but for me it wasn’t that I hated the work to get clean. I hated everything about the rehabs. The staff, the other patients, the furniture. I mean everything. I always felt so uncomfortable at those places and it was impossible for me to open up about my life when I felt so uncomfortable. When I got to A Forever Recovery I was expecting to feel the same aversion to the facility. Before I went I had decided that I would give the facility a week before I decided if I hated it or not. At AFR though I felt safe. Not right from the start because it’s impossible to feel comfortable right from the moment you walk into a rehab. Everything is completely unfamiliar and I always feel so awkward in those kinds of situations. The staff there were really patient with me though. They didn’t push me to do anything that I wasn’t completely comfortable with. They didn’t expect me to start opening up about my life the first day I was there or anything like that. There was an understanding that I was really reserved about everything and they respected that. Because of that, because I wasn’t pushed right from the start I was able to start feeling safe and comfortable there. That is what made the difference between AFR and every other rehab I’ve been to in the past. The staff cared enough about me to not push me into something I wasn’t ready for. I did feel safe there though and so I was able to get through the uncomfortable times when I didn’t want to deal with something but that I obviously needed to deal with. The other clients I went through the program with were great. Every one of us was there to get help. No one’s parent or husband or wife made them go. Each of us wanted to get help and so we were really able to help each other get through it. I made friends there that I will have for the rest of my life and who have helped me so much not only at AFR but since graduating and leaving the program. The program was hard for me, but coming home was even harder. I didn’t have any friends who didn’t get high and being at home night after night with no one to talk to and nothing to do would have driven me crazy if it weren’t for the guys at AFR that I met who were having the same problem. Having someone to talk to for hours at a time each of us making sure the other was okay and not thinking about going out and getting high was a lifesaver for me. I want to believe I would have stayed clean without that but honestly, I needed that. My relationship with my dad is so much better. Since I was 16 I’ve been wanting a real relationship with my dad and I finally have that. We can go out to lunch and he isn’t worried I’m getting high. Our conversations don’t revolve around drugs and rehab anymore and that’s honestly amazing to me. My dad finding A Forever Recovery and helping me get there was literally the best thing that’s happened to me in a really long time.
the food was real salty and the beds were not comfy. but other than that i am clean and sober thats what matters the most
