My life was out of control. I had thoughts of suicide and was severely depressed. I knew I needed help but did not want to make the decision to “never” use again. My family, work and most important, my faith and spirituality was nonexistent.
I became friends with one of the staff members at Anuvia and was constantly encouraged to get the treatment I needed and that my family deserved. After several near fatal binges, I was given the ultimatum of a lifetime from my wife. I was evaluated and after several missed starts I began Anuvia's intensive outpatient treatment program.
At first, I was very reluctant and somewhat negative, but the more I opened up, I found that I wanted to change my life and my future. God and my family were the most important things in my life. I started getting involved and understanding the tools that I needed in my life to take control and stay healthy and sober in mind, body and spirit.
The Anuvia counselors have been incredible and extremely encouraging and supportive in the process. I am extremely blessed and confident in everything I have learned in the program. I would not change it for the world. It seems very inconvenient at first but it is the best investment of time you could ever spend. It is absolutely a life altering program.
