    21 Years Old...rehab Works

    August 22, 2010. I overdoesed for the 6th time by injecting heroin. My stepfather found me in the bathroom, with the turnakit, needle in arm, spoon, and heroin sprawled through the bathroom. He had to give me CPR to wake me up. After waking up, I broke down, started screaming and...

    And Did What I Always Do With Everything!

    Gave Up! That's all I'm good at. I won't change. NEVER! And I hate myself for it. I want to be someone else. I don't want to be me anymore! I want to run away, forget everything and everyone, become someone else besides me. Rehab lied. It didn't help to ****! I'm still as bad as...

    Rehab Saved My Life

    In February 2010, I was in an awful accident. I was actually pronounced dead before they were able to resuscitate me. I was in a coma for almost two weeks. After I got out of the coma, I went to rehab to regain my strength and make sure my head was alright. I had suffered from a...

    Many times, I think it worked for a short while but I wasn't strong enough to keep it up. We done things like write our life stories which was really hard to face up to everything in my life, demons and all. That was in a place in Dublin called High Park or Merchants key...

    I Thought She Loved Me

    I was just released from rehab this past weekend. I have been there for 60 days all because of a girl I met and fell in love with. I have done a line or two before but usually just to sober me up a little. Well, that all changed recently when I moved in with Lisa. Lisa's...

    Six Years Ago....

    I went to rehab, and although I'm not the poster child I have managed not to end up on the streets, so I feel I learned some valuable lessons there.

    I miss it. I felt like I had a whole other

    family. I reminisce about it almost everyday. I guess you could say that just when I finally found happiness. I always wish I could go back for a day, have everyone back and together, I miss all the other clients and staff.

    Just Recently

    Last Saturday I had a huge breakdown and became suicidal. I called a crisis worker and they found me a bed at an inpatient hospital. I stayed there for 5 days. It was the best thing I could have done for myself. I had my meds switched and had wonderful group therapies. I also...

    I've Been to Rehab!

    So I went to a crazy rehab this summer called narconon. It's a crazy place run by the scientologists, but of course they try to tell you it's totally separate from scientology while you're there! Either way, yes, they made us do many ridiculous and mildly brain-washing things...

    3rd Time's the Charm

    I'm not proud to admit it but I was a major drug fiend in my youth. I ran with bikers and dealers.  Coke and speed were available in abundance and I took full advantage of it.  I wound up going to 3 different rehab programs by the time I was 26.  Luckily I burned...

    Ashamed of It

    I am ashamed to be almost 18 and have been to rehab. I am at home right now. I don't want to go back. My mother is making me. I know it is for my own good. I hate being watched. They say I almost died. I just want to die right now.

    Hard But Good.

    i would say rehab was for me one of the most difficult and  most rewarding things I ever did. For once in my life I got truly honest with myself and had an honest look at myself. I didn't always like what I saw but I learned a lot about myself and even to like myself as they...

    It Was Not So Bad...

    I shared how I ended up in rehab in the "I have been to a mental hospital" story. In all honesty it was no so bad. I was in there for alcohol abuse. The rehab was not so unlike the mental hospital was. It was fairly calm, decent people, got to wear your own clothes...
