Finally Finding the Solution Based Treatment I Needed

Finally Finding the Solution Based Treatment I Needed

by  Charlene O

So, I Guess the Question is, What is Solution Based Treatment?

All I can do is share my experience – to tell you how I have become clean with a degree of love for myself and others. I went to my first treatment center when I was 21. I was angry, alone, and powerless – I was also full of shame.

The treatment at this rehab was based on the 12 steps – or should I say, it was based on their concept of the steps. Looking back now, there was a particularly strong emphasis on step one which involved the smashing of denial. I had to become honest which was great, and it helped me realize I wasn’t alone – I am an addict. The process there was confrontational and shaming – maybe a bit too much so. I learned a lot, but after a few years of recovery, I picked up again.

Finding Hope

I found a treatment program in Thailand based around all of the steps. I didn’t realize it before I booked, but the program also involved exercise, CBT, mindfulness, meditation, self-affirmations, counselling, gratitude, inventory, and other useful tools. It was exactly what I needed. The treatment center focused on all of the steps and the program showed me how to live – by using each step in my life on a daily basis.

What is the End Result?

I know that I’m powerless over drugs, but I’m not a bad person. I have a disease, but thankfully, I also have a solution that works so long as I work it every day.

The key thing missing from my life was compassion. I never liked myself – never mind other people. I couldn’t even offer myself love, so how could I accept it from other people? I did not even trust my mum – an addict who died at the age 40. It took a huge step to start offering myself love, but once I began to do this, the process become much easier.

The Hope Rehab treatment program showed me nothing but compassion, love, truth, forgiveness, and responsibility. The solution in my life about how to live it – not just talk it. I have come to believe in a higher power and to see the beauty in myself and my fellow human beings. I don’t want to use today, and I know in my heart I’m loved, needed, and wanted.
