When you are putting money toward your health, your future and your family’s happiness, you should make sure you’re making the best possible choice for your Cannonsburg alcohol and drug addiction treatment clinic. While the best thing to do may still be to talk to our hotline experts so they can discuss your personal needs, seeing the reviews and ratings for some of the addiction rehab centers in your area is another excellent way to begin.
works. takes a while. the treatment was a little slow.
Had very good treatment there. Group sections was a strength.
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.
