Finding my Life in Delray Beach Halfway Houses
When I completed drug rehab in South Florida I felt that I was going to be fine, that my addiction to drugs and alcohol was over and that I could go on continuing my life without drugs and alcohol. Nothing could have been further from the truth. My first few days after leaving addiction treatment were some of the toughest days of my life. I didn’t know what to do with myself. I was antsy, confused and unsure how to live my life on a day to day basis without the use of drugs and alcohol. I quickly became aware of while the treatment program helped me to clear the fog from years of abusing substances as well as help to teach me what I was going to have to do in order to stay sober it did not help me to transition into the “real world”.
After a few weeks I decided that I could no longer take it and that I was going to have to go somewhere to help me transition into the world sober. Recovering in South Florida, one of the Mecca’s of recovery I decided to look into some Delray Beach halfway houses. I decided on going to the Sanctuary. The Sanctuary proved to be the finest of all the Delray Beach halfway houses. There were staff members on site twenty four hours a day who were ready and willing to talk at anytime. In addition the comfortable setting made it very easy for me to learn how to be comfortable and just relax at the end of the day. The time that I spent there was more than enjoyable.
While rehab provided a good foundation for my recovery I accredit the Sanctuary in teaching me how to live and helping me step by step transition back into the real world without the use of chemicals. Being active in recovery I have visited friends in many different halfway houses in South Florida and none of them even came close to holding themselves to the high standard of quality and care the Sanctuary did. It was at the Sanctuary that I learned how to live one day at a time and deal with the tribulations that arise in day to day living without having to turn to drugs and alcohol. It was at the Sanctuary where I truly learned how to live with myself and my feelings.Pages:
