My Journey Out of the Bar

Black outs, snorting cocaine off the back of the bar toilet, eating Xanax like skittles was just the end of a new beginning to my life.

After a week of having suicidal thoughts, I decided it would be best for me to get some real help. I Google’d long term treatment centers at the bar and I came up with Wellington Retreats number. I called and they accepted me with open arms.

That next Monday I flew to Florida from Texas. I was kindly greeted off the airplane by one of the coordinators, and then driven me to clinical. There I met all the other patients and staff. Everyone welcomed me in with open arms. As days went on, I got into the swing of things and started going to groups. I didn’t know how Wellington Retreat was going to help me but I was open to anything after hitting rock bottom at this point.

The groups are great, every group I was in helped me to become more confident in myself, love myself, not dwell on things and much more. I have become so comfortable here; I shared my whole life story without fear of judgment from anyone. My therapist and the rest of the staff have helped me come along so far from when I came into Wellington Retreat 6 weeks ago.  I have never been happier in my life and I feel I have the strength to stay sober for the rest of my life.

Wellington Retreat saved my life.

I’m a happy, sober mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister and wife. Thank you doesn’t begin to describe how much I appreciate what Wellington Retreat has done for me.
