Heroin and Cocaine Addict for 7 Years
I had been a hardcore Heroin and Cocaine addict for 7 years before I took control of my life at Freedom Treatment Center . During my addiction days, it would not be above me to steal, cheat, lie, or hurt people including those that were closest to me. My life was quickly and most inevitably leading to either incarceration or death. I was raised, as a child, to be law abiding and honest but somewhere along the line I fell off drastically and took the dark road destination debauchery. But what got me there? How can I right myself? Am I just a wasted life? Is there redemption? These questions would plague me in my times of periodic and short-lived sobriety. My life was like a racecar careening toward a cement wall until the day of impact and I tried to overdose with a substantial injection of both Cocaine and Heroin.
My parents found a facility that was far from my poisoned environment and which promised something different than the 12 step programs they had looked into. What was it? I could have freedom from drug cravings and the self-control to live a productive life without the label of “addict for life”. So I knew that rehab was the only place I could go and survive. I arrived to the withdraw unit at Freedom Treatment Center in the pits of despair and physically sick to my core.
The withdraw specialists were very understanding and pulled me out of my toxic haze and into reality. I went through book one and felt more relaxed and comfortable with myself and my environment. Then I went through the sauna portion of the program and I sweat out all of those toxins and drug residues that were crippling my body and by god if I didn’t feel like a teenager again. I could think more clearly and most miraculously I was free of my drug cravings, which up to the sauna program had been haunting me like a poltergeist with abandonment issues. Everyday I was building confidence and everyday I learned tools that would help me in all areas of my life. I literally came in a shell of a boy and left a complete man with responsibility and self-control. I credit my Drug Rehab Success to the Freedom Treatment Center Program.
When I returned home my family could hardly recognize the person I had developed into. There relief, happiness, surprise, and pride in there son was worth the world to them and made me incredibly proud in myself and greatfull forever to Freedom Treatment Center and all the life savers that work there.
Legally, Emotionally, & Physically in Shambles
Before this program my life was legally, emotionally, and physically in shambles. By doing drugs I had lost control of my life and everything in it, ruining relationships and hurting all of the people I cared about the most. The Freedom Treatment Center program has given me the skills to confront any problem or situation I encounter, to communicate with others and handle them when they are having difficulties, and to regain control of my life and everything in it. I am more confident in myself and my abilities than I ever have been. This is a GREAT feeling.
A Son’s Drug Addiction
If you’re reading this testimonial, then you already know the pain and heartache of drug addiction. Our world stopped one summer evening when our son admitted his drug addiction. Several months before, we had started noticing changes in our son — he lost his job, he became very secretive, and he was always borrowing money. He just didn’t act like himself. One day I looked into his eyes and said, “where is my son and what have you done with him?” We suspected he was on some kind of drug, but we weren’t prepared when he admitted he was addicted to heroin. Our family was devastated.
Our son had become someone we no longer knew. Over the next several months, our family helplessly watched his rapid decline. Where was that loving, honest and compassionate person we had always known? Somehow we had to get him back. We tried everything we could, including a short term rehab, but nothing seemed to help. He would be fine for a short time, but the addiction was just too strong. Our life was like a continuous roller coaster ride. No one can ride a roller coaster forever. We were desperate.
- Life as we knew it was coming to an end and hope was slipping away.
And then we found the Freedom Treatment Center . We were intrigued by their drug free withdrawal and detoxification program. Thankfully, our son agreed to get help there. Leaving him there was the hardest thing we had ever done, but we wanted him to get well again. We entrusted our son’s very life to the Freedom Treatment Center , and we were not disappointed. Freedom Treatment Center gave our son back his life. He left us a lost, lonely boy. The Freedom Treatment Center and their awesome staff gave him the help and the valuable life skills he needed to return to the person he used to be — only better! Thanks to the Freedom Treatment Center , our son is no longer that lost boy. He is a man on a mission to help other people just like him. the Freedom Treatment Center gave our son Drug Rehab Success, hope and the freedom to dream again.
Sober Now for 31 Years.
In 1977 my life was ruined. I had lost my family, was divorced, and the Dr’s only gave me a few more years to live. At that point I was also homeless, 42 yrs old, and had been using drugs for 27 years since I was 15 years old. I then had an opportunity to do the Freedom Treatment Center Program. This program totally changed my entire life! I re-established relations with my family and re-married and got a good fulfilling job and became a homeowner. I have been clean and sober now for 31 years with not even 1 cravin. Best of all, I’m still alive and loving life at age 73, thanks to Freedom Treatment Center .
Tired, Ashamed, Then Reborn
I entered the Freedom Treatment Center program after dealing with a cocaine addiction for a number of years. I had been evicted out of apartments twice and arrested numerous times. I had lost all of my possessions and was living with a variety of friends. The last two years were the worst. I had cut off all communication with all of my family because of the embarrassment and shame I felt that for what I had become. My family never gave up looking for me and eventually found me in a bar one night and asked if I would listen to someone talk about the Freedom Treatment Center program. By that time I was tired and tired of being tired and was ready.
I went to Freedom Treatment Center ready to change my life but scared of what my life would realistically be like if I did change. I did whatever was asked of me and as I went through I started understanding why they were asking me to do those things. After awhile I began to actually enjoy myself, IN REHAB, enjoy myself. I started to reemerge as the person I knew before drugs ever became a part of my life. It was like a rebirth of myself before my own eyes. I learned how to confront issues and problems before they festered and felt I had to run from them. I became more confident then I had ever been, which was my biggest problem, self-confidence. My relationship with my family has been repaired and we now have a better, closure and more honest relationship then we’ve ever had.
After the program, I met, dated and married my wife. We have the most honest, open and loving relationship that I never thought two people could have. We are also the proud parents of three beautiful, happy and healthy children that anyone could ask for. I truly have the American dream and it is all due to what I learned at the Freedom Treatment Center and for that I will always be grateful.
Sometimes the Hardest Thing You’ve Ever Had to do, can be the Most Rewarding.
The drug lifestyle is one that I lived for over a decade. Most everything that comes along with getting and using drugs I have either done or seen. During my drug use I got into legal, physical, relationship and familial trouble. Lets just say I was not thought of highly by the people who knew me. Prior to using I was a good student, played football, basketball and soccer. My relationships were as normal as normal could be. But I wasn’t, something in me that I could not put a finger on lead me to using. It started off with occasional drinks, then a little weed, then a little lsd, then a little coke, then crack, then heroin. By the time I knew what hit me I was hooked. I had to use or I would get violently sick. Then I got sick of getting sick and tried to stop. I tried conventional means and failed miserably. I tried substituting heroin for other drugs. Again I failed. Then I tried again, and again, and again. Nothing seemed to work for me. I got pretty hopeless during this period and was resolved to the fact that I would always be a junkie. I was even told this by some “professionals” that were trying to help me.
My brother was at school in Georgia at the time and heard an ad for a place called Freedom Treatment Center . He called my dad, my dad called the intake counselor and then he called me. I was so skeptical and reluctant to try another treatment but what the guy said made sense to me and I agreed to go. Doing the program was literally the hardest thing I have ever done. On the other hand it was the most rewarding. The staff was very caring and understanding of what I was going through. They helped me to apply what I was learning so that it was actually me fixing myself. This was pretty amazing to me as most other treatments rely on someone else telling you what your problem is. I found out myself and fixed it myself. Since completion of the program over 10 years ago I have been clean. Its one thing to be clean, but to anyone that has been though what I have with treatment it is almost totally unheard of to be clean, productive and happy. I am all of them and I attribute it to the Freedom Treatment Center Program and the dedicated staff who helped me along the way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Our Treatment Program – A Parent’s View
On August 15th of 2004, we had the privilege of watching our daughter’s drug rehab program graduation ceremony at Freedom Treatment Center Drug Rehabilitation. This wonderful event will never be forgotten as the day that we got our daughter back from the evil clutches of drug addiction. It had been so long since we had seen our precious daughter sober that we almost didn’t recognize her. It’s amazing the power of a drug addiction, but more amazing is the effectiveness of your drug rehab program. She looked great, and her positive demeanor was incredible. We had begun to wonder if we would ever get to see our real daughter, the daughter we knew and loved, again..
Our Drug Rehab Program – Student’s Perspectives
A Life No Longer in Shambles
My life was in shambles when I came to Freedom Treatment Center drug rehabilitation program. I had deceived myself for ages; so long that I honestly began to believe that I had no chance of ever getting rid of my dug addiction. I began to simply tell myself that my behavior was a symptom of mydrug addiction , and that justified it in some way. I was alive but not living life. Drugs and alcohol had made me numb. Now, in my new life, I have no way of explaining the magnitude of change I have achieved through the Freedom Treatment Center drug rehab program. Freedom Treatment Center has given me back my zeal for life, and I have attained a peaceful stability that I never thought I would again. Drug addiction and alcoholism no longer whisper their temptations into my ear, they are merely shadows of my past. I have no fear of life, and no longer do I have a reason to hide from it. With a renewed outlook on life, I can confidently look others eye to eye and be proud of myself and my life. I have learned how to make my life worth living, and I am finally happy.
Cocaine & Consequence
I was 14 when I first tried coke. It was a stupid thing to do but all my friends were doing it at the time so I guess I just followed suit. It turned out to be the worst thing I’ve ever done in my whole life. We came out a club after a heavy night and one of my friends was really drunk, falling all over the place and acting like an idiot. He tripped over his own feet and fell right in front of a policeman. His shoe came off and what was left of his stash dropped out at the policeman’s feet. The rest of us ran off, but he was taken in. I heard he spent some time in prison. I never saw him again after that. hat night really scared me. I didn’t want to go to jail. So I tried to stop using. I would be ok for a day or two but then the withdrawal symptoms would get the better of me and I’d go out searching for some. I hated it. I hated feeling controlled by the drug but there was nothing I could do to stop needing it. That’s when I started looking for help. I heard aboutFreedom Treatment Center through one of my other friends who was already there. I decided to bite the bullet and check it out. From the moment I stepped through the door, I felt welcome and loved, not persecuted. The staff there was great. They knew what they were talking about and helped me to understand my problem better. There were always things to do to take my mind off the withdrawal symptoms and there was always someone I could talk to, anytime I needed. They also pointed me towards a good group counseling center that I still go to. It’s been 3 years now since I said goodbye to drugs, thanks to Freedom Treatment Center . I’d recommend it to anyone who has a problem with substance abuse.
Pain Management to Addiction
I had a serious accident when I was on my motorbike. I was hit by an oncoming car that was in the wrong lane. After being in hospital for 2 months, I was given a prescription for the pain and sent home. I thought it was a bit soon but I did what the doctors said. They told me to take 2 of the tablets when I needed them but no less than 6 hours apart and no more than 8 in a 24-hour period.
It was hard to deal with the pain. I tried sticking to the correct dosage as the doctors said, but it was never enough to control the pain. I thought I was being weak and not handling the pain well, so I was too embarrassed to go back to the doctor. So I decided to take 3 tablets instead of 2. It can’t be doing me any harm, I thought, it’s aprescription drug . I was so scared the pain would come back that I kept taking them. I was eating them like sweets! I started getting sick all the time and the pills stopped working. It was then that I knew I had a problem. I realized that I had been hiding what I’d been doing from my husband and children. I had to do something.
I told my husband what I’d been doing and he flipped. He knew there was something not right but he had no idea I’d been abusing the pills. He told me about a special center called Freedom Treatment Center that had helped a friend of his get off drugs. We decided to go up and see what the place was like and if they could do something for me.
I was expecting to be treated like some kind of delinquent but they were brilliant. I wasn’t made to feel guilty for what I had done. It was more like being taught about how these drugs had affected my body and led to an addiction. There was no mystery about the treatment and I had very little time to think about the drugs that I thought I needed. I was always involved in one of the many activities they ran on a regular basis. They also had a whole variety of health facilities there, like saunas. It gave me the chance to really look at my health as a whole and start fresh. Freedom Treatment Center reminded me that I need to respect and look after my body, instead of thinking more pills will be better.
I made a lot of new friends at Freedom Treatment Center and I still go there from time to time to say hi. I also try to help other people who have fallen into the same trap I did. It’s so easy to do yet it can be difficult to escape. Freedom Treatment Center provided the helping hand I needed to get my life back on track without the need for drugs.
Marijuana is Not Harmless
I never thought that cannabis could cause so many problems. When I first started smoking it, it was kinda like smoking cigarettes, but more relaxing. What could be the harm in that? Well I found out the hard way.
I used to run a kindergarten in my home town. My 3 year old daughter would come too. She loved playing with the other children and being a normal 3 year old little girl. I enjoyed my job. It was fun and very rewarding. But at night, when the working day was over and my daughter had gone to bed, I would get bored and lonely. So I’d have a smoke. It relaxed me and my worries would just disappear. I thought that was ok.
But things got worse. There was a little boy in kindergarten who would kick and punch all the other children for no reason. I tried to talk to his parents about it but they blamed me for not being in control. When things got stressful I would sneak off to the toilets and have a quick joint. The worst thing was I didn’t see anything wrong with what I was doing at the time. On one particular occasion, I forgot there was a little girl on one of the play slides. I’d gone to the toilets for a quick smoke and when I came back, she was screaming in pain. She’d fallen from the slide and broken her arm. Needless to say I was fired on the spot.
I was devastated by what I’d done. It was my fault. I needed help. A close friend of mine recommended Freedom Treatment Center to me as the best treatment and recovery center she’d ever seen. She took me up there and offered to take care of my daughter while I got better. It has been the best thing I have ever done. The specialists helped me understand the negative effects of what I thought was a harmless substance. I went through detox to get all of the drug out of my system and I received counselling to help me learn how to deal with stressful situations without resorting to cannabis. I’d been damaging my daughter’s health with my selfish habit and I don’t think I’ll ever forgive myself for that. But I know now the damage thatcannabis can do, not just to myself, but also to everyone else around me. Freedom Treatment Center saved not just my life, but my daughter’s too. I can’t thank them enough for the excellent treatment and recovery service they provided.
You Truly are the Savers of Life
On the 28th of April 2000, we attended our son’s graduation ceremony at Freedom Treatment Center . Our son’s graduation event will forever be etched in our memory, as a rebirth of our child. It had been so many years since we had seen him drug or alcohol free that we actually had a hard time recognizing him. He looked absolutely wonderful and his behavior was so accepting and calm. For years, we had wondered if we would ever see our “real” son again. We met so many people the evening of our son’s graduation from drug rehab and we cannot remember all of their names, but we want to thank each person who took the time and effort to make a difference in our son’s life. Your efforts are most likely the reason our son developed the will to change, as all other efforts that had been made through the years had not made a difference for him. You are truly the savers of life!
Three months ago I arrived at Freedom Treatment Center drug treatment center with what seemed at the time only a glimmer of hope. After twenty years of heroin and methadone addiction, countless efforts of attempted help that failed, happiness as a drug free person seemed as likely as hitting the lottery at five million to one. As overwhelming as it seemed, I couldn’t bring myself to accept the alternatives; death or prison. Not without exhausting all possible solutions. Somehow I still cherished the thought of drug free existence. Happiness had its price and upon arriving at Freedom Treatment Center I’d decided that if I could, if it was possible, I’d make a real, genuine effort. Then, after being exposed to the loving, caring and committed staff members at Freedom Treatment Center , my commitment became “I can”, and “I will”. And sure enough, three months later I am drug free and in control of my life for the first time in my adult life.
Five weeks from today I’ll be thirty-eight years old, with a future as a happy, drug free member of society to look forward to. What appeared impossible became a reality. My purpose as a person has been revealed. Today I can accept responsibility for my past, no longer afraid of my future, and I am wanting and willing to help my fellow man.
The time spent at Freedom Treatment Center has been nothing short of life-saving. The Freedom Treatment Center treatment program and the people who delivered it, words like amazing, unbelievable and spectacular can’t begin to do them justice.
The Freedom Treatment Center Rehabilitation Program works, and anyone that recognizes the threat drugs pose to our society and planet must support the efforts of the Freedom Treatment Center Rehabilitation Program and staff – they deliver.
“I thank Freedom Treatment Center and all who made it possible for me to experience this wonderful life I now have.”
The Freedom Treatment Center Freedom Treatment Center detoxification program has resulted in astonishing improvement in clients. They consistently report increased mental clarity, greater energy, and greater awareness of their surroundings and an increased feeling of general well being following the program. They are now past the physical discomforts associated with addiction and are ready for the cognitive aspects of the program.
