What Will Your Rock Bottom Be?

The lowest point, the worst of the worst, the ‘rock bottom’. Call it what you will, many people who suffer from addiction have a personal story of landing at a place so low, there’s no further place to fall.

People have told us…

“I lost my marriage and then lost custody of my kids.”

“My best friend died of an overdose right in front of me.”

“I was arrested and my kids saw the whole thing.”

“My brother threw me out of the family business after 20 years.”

For every person who has reached the bottom and lived to tell, there’s a unique and personal story all their own. A story not one of them wants to tell.

Throughout our years of offering treatment, we’ve found that the path of addiction can only lead to 1 of 3 places: Recovery, jail, or death. Addiction makes this promise: “I will kill you.” 

But there’s another powerful, life-altering reality we want you to discover: Recovery is possible. There’s Hope. There’s Help.

If you’re tempted to stop reading because the voice in your head says, “I can’t do it. I can’t handle the symptoms of withdrawal again,” you should know this…

Years of research and study has proven that with the use of medication, the overwhelming cravings, and crushing symptoms of withdrawal can be stopped so you can live a normal life during treatment.

Here are the facts:

People using Methadone Treatment are more likely to…

  • Hold a steady job
  • Have custody of children
  • Have a home
  • Have stable relationships
  • Live healthier lifestyles
  • Live longer

Medication-Assisted Treatment works! While in treatment, you can live at home, set goals, contribute to your community, go to work, raise your family, think clearly… and rebuild your life.

Typical methadone treatment lasts between roughly 12 months. This gives the brain time to heal itself while you work on getting your life back on track. When you’re ready to complete treatment, you can safely decrease your dose while in the care of our doctor.

Through our Path To Recovery program, counselors will help you learn to spot triggers, move beyond guilt and shame, find motivators in life, learn how to avoid relapse and much, much more.

You have choices. But here’s what you DON’T have to do:

  • You DON’T have to lose your life to addiction.
  • You DON’T have to wait to hit your rock bottom before you get help.
  • If you’ve already hit bottom, you DON’T have to stay there!
