Why are you afraid of making mistakes? Fear of the choice being “bad” keeps you stuck. Accept that you are human. As far as I know, all humans make mistakes. The only ones that won’t give you grace are the ones that have no grace for themselves. So lighten up a bit.
I know some truths that I need to stop denying and start accepting. That unsettled feeling in my gut is there for a reason.
It’s time for me to stop sweeping things under the rug and start having the courage to speak up. I need to tell myself that I am relevant and my opinions matter, and that by standing my ground I can be a positive force for change, because I have something to say that someone out there may need to hear.
I have come to the conclusion that I need to trust my best judgment, stick to my decision, follow through, and let the cards fall where they may.
I think the important thing to realize is that life has a way of working out. Even if we make the worst possible choice, we still have the freedom to make adjustments.
So let yourself try what feels right for you, and don’t worry about making the “wrong” decision. One of the best things I have learned is that the world is a place to explore, and it will embrace you if you embrace it.

What is residential inpatient treatment? Primary care consists of the first 30 – 90 days in initial treatment. We utilize this period to obtain psychological and medical testing, stabilize, develop self-knowledge and form a partnership with each individual to create a customized plan for each patient.
Current Studies have shown direct correlation between substance abuse disorder and impaired brain function. When you abuse drugs, alcohol, or prescribed medication, you are causing a chemical imbalance in your brain. As such, our treatment model is designed to target body, mind and spirit to restore this imbalance and re-wire your brain so that you can stay clean, sober and healthy.
Not only is addiction a brain disease but it is chronic in nature, much like diabetes, heart disease or cancer — it requires lifelong monitoring and management. We offer many referral options to sober living to ensure long-term success.
Individual & Group Therapy in Residential Inpatient Treatment
Individual therapy is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change. Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy in which one or more therapists treat a small group of clients together and utilize the group dynamic and the sharing process to facilitate growth and change.
Behavioral approaches help engage people in drug abuse treatment, provide incentives for them to remain abstinent, modify their attitudes and behaviors related to drug abuse, and increase their life skills to handle stressful circumstances and environmental cues that may trigger intense craving for drugs and prompt another cycle of compulsive abuse.
