The nutritional part of this program was a huge role in making me feel comfortable while I was doing my opiate medication detox.
I sixteen years old and an opiate user and escalated to Oxycontin from my previous drug of choice.
Before coming to ATMC I had been chewing up 240mg oxy a day. I had attempted to detox numerous times at home alone with no obvious success. I gathered up enough courage one night to find help, and then found myself talking to Diane on the crisis hot-line. She reassured me that help was out there for me and that she was able to assist me in reaching my goal. This goal was to get off of opiates ASAP!
So four days after talking with Diane I was in Sedona, AZ at ATMC. That was one week ago, and today I’m leaving to go home with well-structured plans on how I can remain sober long-term. The nutritional part of this program was a huge role in making me feel comfortable while I was doing my opiate medication detox. “I am really, really good!”
I deeply thank all of the clients and staff at ATMC who helped me through my recovery process.
