21 Year Old Young Woman Goes to Rehab in 2007
Does Rehab Work?
HEY, Remember Me?
I’m the girl from New Orleans, Louisiana…I was with y’all at your recovery retreat for 2 months in 2007. Happy to say I’m making 8 years! My husband just made 9 years. We are doing great.
We have 3 beautiful boys and are so enjoying our life of freedom. My relationship with God has gotten stronger and stronger each passing year. I’m a whole person and I’m so grateful that we are giving our children a life of peace and happiness and not of addiction, like my husband and I grew up in.
I just noticed your Serenity Vista Facebook Page and wanted to say “Hi”, and thanks! I am so glad I was able to start my recovery with y’all. I hope y’all are doing well!
Oh and I didn’t mention that my relationship with my family is restored. I’m able to have healthy relationships with them in what I’ve learned and continue to learn. My mom is sober since 2007.
I believe God gives us “double for our trouble”… what I missed out on my childhood I am now getting back in my adult life. I’ve always wanted to have my own family, it’s such a wonderful thing.
Does rehab and recovery really work if you are an addict, alcoholic or codependent? One way to look at this question is to ask, does exercise work? Does studying for a test work? If your Dr gives you a prescription for an antibiotic, does it work? Well, the paper it is written on surely won’t help the infection, but going to the dispensary, getting it filled properly, and taking it as directed will give you the best chance possible. Especially if the infection has been diagnosed correctly, and the antibiotic works on that particular bacterium. Does rehab work? The answer you will hear in the 12 Step Rooms is, “It works. If you work it.”
The Willingness To Do Whatever It Takes
The particular young woman who wrote this amazing and inspiring email to Serenity Vista Retreat was willing to do whatever it took. In her case, it meant learning about codependency and detaching from parents that meant well, but were keeping her sick. You can see from her email that she now has mature and respectful relationships with her family – and they are all recovering. It was recommended to this young woman that she wasn’t ready to return home after the industry standard 28 days. She needed more time for the maturation process and to heal deeper issues. She surrendered to her counsellor’s suggestion. 8 years later, you hear the results of her surrender. This young lady came to her treatment rehab facility for addiction on Christmas Eve. She was willing to do whatever was needed to get the treatment she needed. One more day to wait was too long.
