Getting treatment is the best thing that I could have ever done for myself. I came initially to get time off my jail sentence but after being here for 2-3 months I have understood why I needed to be here and why I was self-medicating. I was running because of fear. Fear that I would never line up to meet the expectations that people had for me specifically my Dad. I figured if I was in a haze all of the time I could use that as an excuse to never have to meet those expectations. After understanding that now I know that by being clear headed I have a ton to offer this world and I can exceed any expectations I set for myself. I can now accomplish anything I want and being sober and clean is WAY more fun.
