When I first came to The Watershed, I was planning to stay for a two-week detox program and then was going home. In the very beginning I truly felt like I hated the entire establishment, that they were just bad, greedy people who’s only concern was billing my insurance company for thousands.
I was so beat up from the years of nothing else working in my life that I decided to stay and give the program a shot. This proved to be the best decision I ever made. I soon realized that The Watershed was not the problem. Other people were not the problem. I was the problem.
I began to take the suggestions the staff gave me, and I began to grow as a person. Today I have been sober for over 5 months. The Watershed saved my life. I owe The Watershed everything, as they provided me the tools I needed to change my life. Equally as important, they protected me and provided a safe and sheltered environment. They took care of me until I was able to take care of myself again.
I truly believe The Watershed saved my life and will always be indebted to them. True story.
