"Toowoomba Day Rehab Program changed my life!"

About: Lives Lived Well - Toowoomba

(as the patient),

Basically, the Toowoomba Day Rehab Program has changed my life. 

I was at rock bottom with my alcohol addiction; hiding bottles around the house and binge drinking during the day. It was ruining my relationships and I ended up losing my license. 

I had done one on one counseling sessions in the past and while these were very effective, the group environment of the day rehab program was what I needed at this time in my life. 

Being amongst others who were suffering with addictions and hearing their stories made me feel not so alone in my fight to get better. Plus it was and is such a safe environment with them and the group facilitators. 

It is an intensive course but so worth it. It has changed my viewpoint on so many of my destructive behaviours and given me tools to go forward with a more positive and healthy life; physically, mentally and emotionally.

Hello Grateful2020,

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience in attending Lives Lived Well's Toowoomba Day Rehab Program. It is so good to hear that the group setting was what you needed at this point and that it has changed your life.

Your commitment to try again after attending one-on-one counselling and hitting a rock bottom is a testament to your courage and persistence and willingness to engage in the intensive nature of the course.

Finding the right support at the right time is a key part of any recovery journey. The experience of hearing the stories of others in the group and the shared suffering you connected within your own story has helped break the isolation you had been experiencing. Thank you for acknowledging the safe space the facilitators and other participants were able to create with you.

I wish you all the best in your journey ahead as you bring the knowledge and skills you have picked up in the program into your daily life and continue to grow the positive viewpoint you have developed.

Warm regards

Gerard
