For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.
I came to The Watershed on 5/23/2016 because of a drug problem. However, upon working with my therapists, going to meetings, working the 12-steps, and hearing from other recovering addicts with sobriety time, I came to accept that it wasn’t just a drug problem, but a disease called addiction. It was through The Watershed that was able to be honest with myself and see that once I start that first drink or drug, I lose control over the amount and ability to stop. Personally for me, The Watershed helped me realize two things. It helped me understand, that “I AM AN ADDICT” and also that “THERE IS A SOLUTION”. I’m thankful for everyone at The Watershed, from the kitchen staff to the Techs, from the nurses to the bus drivers, from the therapists to the janitors, and from the administration to the doctors. My life today is the best it’s been in years. I just got rehired at my job as a registered nurse. I’m spending more time with my family and children and I also have an opportunity to grow spiritually. I have to remember why I have such a good life now. It’s because I’m still working a solid program of recovery, one day at a time.
