Six years ago, I reclaimed my life after allowing alcohol to become who I was. For a very long time I had known alcohol was taking over but I was certain that I could handle it. I spent years unsuccessfully attempting to quit drinking and then I realized that overcoming this disease was not something I could do on my own.
I found the help I needed to begin my recovery at Schick Shadel Hospital. It was a blessing for me, and I credit the treatment with saving my life. During my ten-day stay at Schick, I learned the science of the disease and the relief of knowing I was not alone. The treatment gave me a huge edge in my continuing recovery, as it is scientifically proven to do, by removing my cravings for alcohol.
My experience at Schick instilled in me a passion to become a psychotherapist and substance use counselor, helping others to find the peace I have found. When I have patients, who seem like a good fit for the program, I wholeheartedly refer them to Schick for treatment.
I am so grateful after six years of sobriety. I now have a wonderful relationship with my wife and revel in the joy of being a grandfather. My soul is happy. Yours can be, too.
