From every angle, you feel judgement and misunderstanding. From strangers, acquaintances and, perhaps, even family and friends, you’re told to just quit your substance use. When you look around, you don’t see the support you know you so desperately long for.
Without question, it’s hard for the outside world to grasp just how complicated and terrifying addiction is. And while the thought of pursuing addiction help is easy to reason with, taking actual steps to get there leaves you feeling paralyzed.
How can you tackle your addiction head on and face reality without a drink or drug? Perhaps deep down you’re certain you can do it, but you know you can’t do it alone – and alone you will never be when you enter addiction recovery at Covenant Hills. You will be fully supported by all our experienced staff and even our previous residents like Pat, who knows exactly what you’re going through.
To the beautiful person in bed #1:
My name is Pat. This bed was my spot for 70 nights. Some nights were full of struggle, some full of tears, some full of pain, and some nights [were full of] gratitude.
I wanted to write you to tell you that you’re in a very special place, full of love and genuine caring.
This is the place to get honest and raw with whomever your higher power is. This is where you find out who you really are and what you’re made of.
I want to wish you all the success in the world. And I want you to know I’ll be praying for you for the next 30 days.
I pray your heart will be open and you find the strength to battle your demons; we all have them.
Please make this [your] home away from home, and I pray you sleep peacefully while you’re here.
Love & blessings, Pat
