Where did you go to treatment and what did you think of it?

From that ten-cent phone call and a cup of coffee to AA's General Service Office. What's your take on service?

Where did you go to treatment and what did you think of it?

Where did you go to treatment and what did you think of it? I went to a rehab here in south Louisiana and I've met some really incredible people. It was like a spiritual retreat for me. I think it might have been the best experience of my life. It certainly was the most life-changing experience.

I didn't go to any facility for my alcoholism, but I did for a mental illness. Really great people, life-changing experience. I was 6 months sober and it was nice to start attending to my problems with a little help!

I have never been to a treatment center. I know many who have and they claim it was a wonderful start to their sobriety/recovery.
I have known many who have been several times and they are still drunk.

I've never been, though if I'd stayed on the path I was travelling with my booze, I could see it just up the road there.

I was in an in-patient treatment center a long time ago. Later, was in an Intensive Outpatient Program. I did not remain sober, but that says a lot more about me than about them. When I was finally ready for sobriety, it was (and remains) in AA that I found it. Matter of fact, it seems the biggest suggestion I heard from both facilities was "Go to AA". I didn't listen to that then, but Alcohol eventually beat me utterly senseless and then I was ready to give up and get sober. It takes what it takes, I guess.

I have nothing bad to say about the facilities I was involved with. I just wasn't really ready. However, I am lucky to have survived to become ready.

Thanks,

Ed
