I wanted to share a recent drug rehab testimonial we received and briefly discuss how a person’s personal recovery reaches more than just themselves. It seems you always hear more about the addiction and how far the tentacles can reach as it destroys not only the addict but entire families, friends and careers. All the negative effects that filter down creating chain reactions that inevitably produce the feelings of desperation, sadness, loss, hate and despair. But what about the other side…. the feelings of hope, happiness, freedom and joy. The ripples of recovery can work all the same way.
A drug rehab testimonial from Joy:
I feel like I need to tell you this, even though I’m sure you all have heard it before. Prior to this whole experience, Chris (Joy’s Brother) was telling me that it was too hard for him to explain what Bay Area Recovery had done for him, that I’d just have to see it. I sort of knew about his experience but not really in great detail. At first, I was really skeptical but I attribute that to all the BS I’ve heard so much of before! Although after this past weekend at home with Russell (Joy’s Husband), I’m really seeing what Chris was meaning. I can’t even put into words how different Russell is. I kept thinking and praying for the “Old Russell” to come back but then it hit me, I don’t have that either. I’ve got a new and improved Russell, one that doesn’t have to put up a front or pretend like he’s not hurting. For the first time in the near 17 years I’ve been with him, he’s at peace. If this is what 30 days has done for him, I can’t wait to see what this next 30 will bring!
Also, I’d thought I had gotten rid of everything around the house but I apparently hadn’t found a few of his hiding spots. The first thing he did after greeting everyone when he got home was to go around and trash what he had left. I was surprised to see that, especially because he never even told me what he was doing. I just happened to see him flushing the stuff. We had a great weekend just hanging out with the kids and some of our other family. Our oldest son even told me that his “Daddy wasn’t mean anymore”. That was huge. I told Russell he said that too. This man did chores?!? I can’t even remember the last time that happened! Anyway I just wanted to tell ya’ll thank you!! Joy
A drug rehab testimonial like this are the reason we do what we do. Bringing families back together, saving lives, helping people gain sobriety but even more than that… showing people how to maintain sobriety living happy, joyous and free from the effects of alcoholism and drug addiction.
