I came to First Step Recovery with a 10 year opiate addiction that absolutely controlled my life, it (my addiction) was like an anchor that held me in one spot, stunting my spiritual, emotional, and mental growth; it affected my relationships with other people and skewed my overall view of reality. I came in scared to get clean, thinking that the detox process alone would probably kill me, but the staff were so kind and encouraging, they helped me find the courage and strength within myself to walk through the fire. No matter how I felt during the detox process whether it was restless, anxious, nauseous, or whatever, Doctor Matney and his staff were quick with a solution to these negative feelings of physical discomfort/withdrawal, that would normally have led me to using again (relapse). I am clean and sober and learning to face life head on, because I CHOSE to walk through the doors of First Step Recovery and ask for help. If you’re currently addicted to opiates and not sure how to stop the cycle of insanity, First Step Recovery can help. It’s your life, choose wisely.
