I was in Diamond House (DH) in December 2018. I am an alcoholic addict with PTSD and depression. I arrived at DH late in the evening of the 26th. I was scared to death. Fear gripped me because I had not been away from my family in more than 23 years. I was also experiencing heavy withdrawal and was afraid of what the detox would bring.
I had been trying to detox myself for a few months and no matter how hard I tried to get clean, I repeatedly failed. I had sweats, shakes, hallucinations, anxiety, pain, but fear had me.
The relief I felt from the moment I arrived is indescribable. I was treated with respect, love, kindness, and dignity from the moment I arrived. DH truly has thought of every detail to assist us addicts and alcoholics gain a foothold on this disease. Every activity is designed to assist us with getting our lives back.
One beauty of the program at DH is the introduction to several programs of recovery, for example; AA, Celebrate Recovery, NA, SMART Recovery, LifeRing, and Refuge Recovery. Attending these meetings helped me find where I fit. Today I do both AA and Celebrate Recovery and this is what is working for me.
Diamond House worked on my whole recovery and has set me on a path to success and peace. They treat each person as an individual. I was medically detoxed and my addictions, PTSD and depression were treated.
There is not enough gratitude I could show or say to cover the gifts I have received. I HAVE MY FAMILY BACK, I have self confidence, and the shame I walked in with and have always felt has been lifted.
I still work hard to maintain myself, my sobriety and be productive in this world. Diamond House Detox provided the foundation I needed for success. The comfort and amenities provided are too many to mention. The food is nothing short of amazing. The spacious comfortable rooms afford us the opportunity for alone time to reflect on assignments or hard issues we are working on. Outside assistance was brought in to assist me with my PTSD. What ever the issues is, Diamond House will address it and provide the individual attention some of us need
have been given a miracle and a new path forward…THE RIGHT PATH. Thank you Diamond House.
