"After nine years of using and multiple treatment centers, I thought I was a lost cause, until I found Woodhaven. I entered by choice but with zero willingness. Over time I became honest, open-minded and willing. I began to trust the process and Woodhaven, which wasn't easy because trusting in anyone or anything for that matter, was something I hadn't been able to do for quite sometime. I had the most amazing counselor who did not hesitate to call me out, but guided me in the most loving and caring way possible. The entire staff was also amazing. They gave me a caring ear to listen to my occasional insanity with no judgement. Today, I am over two years clean and sober. From the bottom of my heart and soul I can say, if it wasn't for Woodhaven, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you Woodhaven, for giving me a safe place to start my life over. I now have the life I've always deserved but was too sick to see.
"I have graduated from Woodhaven's inpatient program twice over the past year and I couldn’t be happier with how much I have grown as a result. I was more concerned with being accepted by everyone and I didn’t think that my drug problem was that severe. I ended up relapsing and my addiction almost instantly ruined everything in my life. For so long I had a negative self-image and low self-esteem. I would blame all my issues on other people, never taking ownership over my actions. I have now come to realize that I was the main problem and my drug use was only a symptom of my disease. What I have gained from my second visit is a better understanding of my behaviors, self-acceptance and how I can apply the necessary tools to live a successful life without the use of drugs. Thanks to Woodhaven I have started to reclaim my life and build a future for myself that I thought I'd never have and for this I am grateful."
