I was told before booking my flight and planning for the trip that my insurance had been approved and I would be staying for 30 days, was told I’d spend approximately 2 to 3 days in detox. Got there and 3 days later was told my insurance wouldn’t pay for tje 30 days, only for 7 days in detox. Had to rebook my round trip ticket and was charged over $150 just for changing dates. Stayed in detox the entire time, which means I ate and slept for 7 days. Have called numerous times and apparently there is no one in charge of any of these facilities because they continue to transfer your calls to a recording that doesn’t have a directory. I have asked the 2 people I’ve spoken to, who I could speak to about being reimbursed the $918.00 out of pocket travel fees I incurred. Will not gift me a name or phone number to anyone in management or customer service. They lied to me and wasted my time, money and most of all the chance to turn my life around. You see, I’ve had this addiction for a long time and no one to help. I finally, stepped out in faith and asked for help and they failed me and show no concern for me at all. They only wanted money, money, money!!!! No concern for the individual. As for the staff at the recovery center, they were very kind and caring. As for Chris and John, if that’s truly their names, they are rude, uncaring and very unprofessional.
Brook was a great help in the beginning stages on my path to sobriety. Great staff and nice clean location. Would highly recommend to anybody that is struggling!
I am 38 years old and I am from Chelmsford, Massachusetts. I had a really good upbringing with a family that truly loved me. I had a daughter at young age, but went on and graduated from a vocational high school and became a licensed Journeyman Electrician by the age of 22. I met my wife and we bought our first home when I was 25. Shortly after that my brother came to my house with some pills and I tried painkillers for the first time, my self-destruction began. Over the next ten years I went to 8 different treatment centers but it didn’t help. I lost visitation rights to see my daughter, I lost my electrical license, I lost our home, my wife left me and filed for divorce, I had overdosed and been revived, I lost my purpose and I lost the will to live. On February 24, 2011 the phone call came. My older brother called me and said “Our brother is dead”. He had died from an overdose. I remember going through these feelings that I could never begin to explain, feelings of grief, guilt, shame, sadness, etc. all at the same time. I remember wishing that my wife or daughter were there with me to hug. I realized I was all alone and that it was my fault. That is when I cried out and begged God to help me. I told him that I couldn’t do this alone, and asked him to please help me. I asked him to forgive me for being so selfish. Within a few months, God put Pastor in my path. He explained Jesus Christ and the cross to me. He told me that if I would accept this free gift that Jesus had already died for, that I could leave my old life and all of those bad things that I had done at the foot of the cross and I would be forgiven. He also told me something else that day; he told me that he believed in me. I hadn’t heard somebody say that to me in a long time. That was the day that things started turning around for me. That was the day that I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Well, I fell again. I reached out to Pastor and he told me about Teen Challenge, I thought that he was joking, I was 35 years old and assumed Teen Challenge was for Teens. Little did I know that I was committing myself to the hardest recovery program in the world. God helped me endure. In May of 2014, I had been in the program for about three months and I went to the Brockton Family and Probate court for my divorce hearing. My wife told the judge “I am seeing something different in my husband since he has been in Teen Challenge, I would like to postpone the divorce.” Today, the divorce has been dropped and our family is being restored! I graduated in May of 2015! Today my family is proud of me. My mother, has made it her mission to be a voice in the addiction community and tell as many people about was God is doing through Teen Challenge and bring hope to as many as she can. She has joined and started several groups and is working diligently to make sure that families don’t have to go through what we did. My beautiful wife and I are working through the mistakes that I had made, she has been through so much and I am so blessed to have her by my side. God has blessed us with our precious little boy Jonathon. My daughter has turned into a beautiful young woman! She has graduated high school and went on to college where she is studying corporate accounting. She has accepted Christ in her life and God has begun restoring our relationship. I am so grateful for what God is doing in my life through Teen Challenge. I have been gratefully serving at Teen Challenge and keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus. God is restoring my family and all of those other things that I had lost and I have a hope and a future! The scripture that I stand on is- 2 Corinthians 5:17- "This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!"
