Thank you Recovery Village at Palmer Lake for giving me the opportunity to take back my life and giving my family back their mother and wife.
If you want a safe and highly professional program to help you understand your addition and implement the recovery tools you need to survive this confusing and devastating illness, you need to look NO FURTHER.
Full disclosure: I’ve been to other treatment programs and all of them were helpful. However, there was something missing. I didn’t know exactly what until these past 45 days at Palmer Lake Recovery Village. I received a new level of education, trauma therapy, meditation and mindfulness skills, plus yoga and so very much more. I also must mention the unlimited access to a full contingent of licensed medical professionals. The flow of treatment is perfect. Beginning with a thorough medically supervised detox, all encompassing inpatient program, with the (imperative option in my opinion) of Intensive outpatient program with a thoroughly detailed after care plan. The staff here has a very unique combination of passion, expertise and unparalleled professionalism. All without ever neglecting the sensitive nature we addicts and alcoholics arrive on their doorstep with.
Personally, my past included some significant trauma events. I really was unaware of how much impact this “old history” had on my life and my inability to stop my use of substances. But they knew and they encouraged me to address this, and made it safe for me to do so. Not everyone has big traumatic events in their past, but the small things that we brush off as insignificant can turn out to be really important.
This is a first class treatment program that I would highly recommend to anyone suffering from the misery this disease brings. Hope is real and attainable.
I have an honest fear of failing but I absolutely know that I have the tools, resources and an in-depth plan. If I follow it, I WILL NOT relapse. Palmer Lake made sure that I’m prepared for life with the support in place to thrive.
PS: Life can be fun sober! Thank you Sonny, Ashley, Amanda, Amanda, Cindy, Tony, Jessica, all the BHT staff, kitchen staff and everyone else dedicated to making our lives better!
