“I have enjoyed my time here at Phoenix. I was serious about getting back on track and dealing with my relapse. The groups were always about the real issues and the staff is sincere. That kept the whole experience a heartfelt one. And that is where I’m choosing to live from here on out. I have been following my head around way to long, but I got a lot out of here and it has been the best experience I’ve had with treatment.”
“[In recovery] my family relationships are now fantastic, and more social, re-newing my interest in things, being positive with high self-esteem, and no longer depressed. Phoenix program taught me how to achieve this, without alcohol. I am in control, feet “great,” and forever will be indebted to the Phoenix Program for helping me to achieve this!!”
“It helped me think about whether the desire to use matches up with the other things I wanted to do. I found substance use was pushing me in a direction I really didn’t want to go. Phoenix helped me plan actions to keep my life on track for the things that are most important to me, like my friendships, job, opportunities, physical and mental health.”
She reported at discharge, “I never really had the chance before to think about why I drink. Now I know I don’t have to use alcohol to have a good time. The communication skills helped me feel confident to ask my friends to spend time in activities that don’t center on drinking.”
The student had been in treatment for a few months and began to grasp how extreme planning is necessary to sustain recovery. The student came to the mother and explained, “I really appreciate that you gave me the tickets, but I just don’t think this concert would be a good environment for me right now. I’ll go ahead and sell the tickets.”
The mother noted, “I was so impressed my 20 year old would do that.”
