I knew nothing would change for me unless I was able to remove alcohol completely from my life. I could no longer control my use and it no longer served me in a positive way. The alcohol took me to a dark place where I became isolated with my mental and physical health deteriorating.
I wanted a way out. I wanted more for myself and to be the best man I could be for all of my loved ones. I wanted to get back to the person I was before the drinks took over and put myself in a position that allowed me to grow as an individual and pursue a fulfilling life. I ultimately wanted true connection and to be a part of humanity again. This is when I heard about Recovery Unplugged.
I was open minded enough to give it a shot and I took a plane straight to Recovery Unplugged from a detox in Georgia which may be the best decision I have ever made. Recovery Unplugged and its caring staff loved me back to life and gave me enough time away from alcohol to learn how to deal with life and my emotions in healthy ways. They supplied me with all the resources and tools to rediscover myself and guide me down a positive path. They introduced me to an amazing community of people who all had the same goal as me: to be the best versions of themselves.
Recovery Unplugged gave me the strength to advocate for myself and my well-being. With the foundation Recovery Unplugged has given me, my life has completely turned around. There is no telling what is in store for me if I continue to stay connected with Recovery Unplugged, NA/AA, service, my sponsor, and the twelve steps because I have already received so much internally through this experience. I have the unconditional love of my family, amazing new relationships, a career in sales and hospitality, and a healthy mind and body. I am forever grateful to Recovery Unplugged and hope that as many other people like me are able to go to them and find the life they have been praying for. They are there for you right now.
