I Feel Lucky to Have Done This Early In Life

There is a common misconception that people won’t be ready to go to rehab and change until they have been doing drugs for some time and have hit rock bottom. This often leads people to put treatment off until things get so bad they cannot avoid it any longer. There is no need to wait until someone reaches “rock bottom“ to ask them to get help. The sooner a person decides to quit abusing drugs and alcohol the better.

Since the beginning of my program, I struggled really hard. I didn’t accept the fact of being here but later in my program, I realized all of the things I needed to understand about myself. I opened up. I understood who I was. 
The program helped me overcome my past and the things I was afraid to confront. I did it and came out stronger. I’m lucky to have been able to fit this in my life as early as I did.
