The staff was great, always attentive to my needs and gave the extra attention needed during the occasional downtimes of recurrent depression and anxiety spells.
Before coming to ATMC I had been on various meds for depression, anxiety and various other psychiatric issues. I was also a stimulant addict hooked on bath salts like apvp, mxe, butylone, methylone, 4-mec, 4mmc, MDPV, 2C-E, 2C-C, 4-ACO-DMT, and K2 like smoking blends and the list goes on for over two years.
I had been on the medications ever since I was in the 6th grade, mind you I’m 28 now. I developed almost daily psychosis over the past year and had numerous visits to hospital in and out-patient facilities with no success. I’d turn right back to my drug habits and continue to seek that perfect medication to cure my problems, every month switching meds to try and ease my problems.
Then finally one night I overdosed with nearly 400mg of Phenezapam which placed me into ICU and a psych ward for a week, only remember bits and pieces of my stay. Nearly killing myself I was unable to walk and control my bodily functions.
Then I made it to ATMC, getting there was all a blur only remembering arriving and a resident offering me a cup of tea. I started working the program using the detox facility to its fullest and within a month and a half I was off all my medications and my psychosis was non-existent. The staff was great, always attentive to my needs and gave the extra attention needed during the occasional downtimes of recurrent depression and anxiety spells.
Though all the detoxification processes and superb counseling from Nina and the support of the staff, and great friends I made I have changed my life from one of a shy reclusive drug addict with failing health who didn’t care if he lived through his next binge to a witty, genuine individual who is happy to be alive to finally be free from my addictions and years of psych meds. Things are not perfect but no one’s life is. But I believe I’ve been given the proper tools and training to continue coping with my now only occasional depression and anxiety spells.
I have to thank everyone at ATMC for changing and saving my life and giving me the chance to start it over with a clean slate and to confidence to start my life over again.
