Are you new to sobriety? Facing Rehab but unsure what to expect? Well then, we have the episode for you!

 

In this week’s episode we thought we’d go back a bit and talk about what the rehab experience was like. Why? Because it’s here that most of us are introduced to the world of recovery. Finding yourself in a rehab center can be a VERY lonely and sad feeling. But for a lot of us, this is where we truly were able to begin to believe we could get better. And hope is always a worthy subject. 

 

This topic is brought to us by this week’s warstory from Courtney. Courtney’s relationship with her father had introduced her into the world of addiction long before she would venture there herself. Denial would keep her in many dangerous situations before a moment of clarity following a really bad black out finally had her seeking change.  In rehab she was finally forced to face the demons she’d been running from her whole life. Her life today is born from the seed planted from the healing that took place there. She is a true testament of how real change can happen when we get honest with ourselves and do the work. 

 

Thank you Courtney for sharing your story!
