Gratitude in The Watershed

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.

From Relapse to Recovery

I had been in recovery from 2007-2011 for alcoholism.

I relapsed in 2011 & admitted myself into The Watershed April of 2011 after a 3 month relapse where I was mixing prescription Ativan with alcohol. I arrived at The Watershed with a blood pressure of only 60/40. The staff at The Watershed took great care of me as I was on the detox unit for almost 2 weeks then progressed to the other unit for the remainder of my stay.

I had another relapse shortly after rehab; however, I am sober today & have been since June 16th, 2011. I have definitely found freedom & happiness in my life today & any desire to drink or use is non-existent today!

Sobriety has given me a life. I am remarried & about to have my first child in 7 weeks! Never in a million years would I have ever imagined any of this would be possible!
