3 years ago my sister and I were both using heroin. Our parents were miserable and constantly trying to get us to go to rehab. We always refused though. 3 years ago though is when my sister overdosed on heroin and died. Neither of us had ever overdosed before and I honestly didn’t think it would happen to either of us. I knew theoretically that it could happen and that if we kept getting high eventually it would happen. Knowing something theoretically though and having it happen to you are completely different things. My sister and I usually got high together but the day she overdosed she had gone out with her friends and she never came home. To put it mildly, it was awful. The first time I saw my parents after my sister passed they begged me to get help. They didn’t need to though. I was so shaken up but the whole thing that I was wanted to go. I didn’t want to die as well and after my sister I realized the likelihood of me dying was fairly high. So, I went to rehab. After I finished the 30-day program I got home and relapsed. It wasn’t right away but it was close enough to when I got home that my parents thought I had no desire to get clean. They didn’t understand and they still don’t understand the pull of heroin. I didn’t want to get high, not really but I was trying to stay clean by sheer willpower and it just wasn’t working. They sent me to that same rehab twice and neither time really helped me. We decided that I needed a something else. That going back to that same rehab over and over wasn’t going to help me much at all. We found Choices and I’m lucky we did. As soon as I got to Choices I started feeling comfortable. The staff were kind and caring and it just felt like everyone was there to help you. At Choices, I was able to choose the program that resonated with me and that helped me in my recovery immensely. I wasn’t stuck doing the same program trying to make it work. I was doing the program that way the right fit for me with staff who truly understood what I was going through. At no point did I feel like I was being placated and just moved along on my program so they could open a bed up for someone else. I was able to work on the underlying reasons for my addiction instead of just trying to work on the addiction itself. I was able to spot the behaviors in the past that were keeping me for staying sober and I knew what I needed to do personally in order to stay sober. When I graduated my program at Choices I felt confident that I had beaten this addiction. I had. I was home for 4 months before I went back to Choices to work. I was doing great on my own but I realized that I wanted to help people the same way I was helped and I love it. Helping someone through the same thing I went through and watching come out the other side happy and sober and ready for their lives. It’s an incredible experience.
