Why We Love Our Alumni Community

By: Helana Cabral, Transformations Alumna and Director of Alumni Services You don’t graduate sobriety. This is why being part of an amazing alumni family like the one we have at Transformations Treatment Center is so important. One of the things I love about our Alumni Department is that everyone is an alumnus of Transformations, so we can relate to clients on all levels. We have completed the same PHP, IOP and OP groups, lived in client housing, currently attend meetings, have sponsors, work steps, struggled in recovery, and enjoyed life sober.  Almost anything our alumni are struggling with, we too [...]

Death Brought a Knife

By: Phillip S., Transformations alumnus   As I walk through the valley of the…. Man, screw the shadow of death, I’m not about to rest I got a lot of life left, he’s about to be out of breath I’ve survived all his tests, I ride and I’ve died with the best But my quest, to wrestle with death, has left me to be a bit depressed, and I’m a bit of a pessimist I wasn’t always like this, my existence used to consist of bliss I started life with starry eyes; I was a far cry from the barfly [...]

The Unsung Heroes in Addiction Treatment

By: GayLynn Grigas, MA. Psy. CAP, Intern LMHC, Education and Training Department Director  We are in a battle against addiction, and the carnage that occurs daily is real.  There are foot soldiers on the very front line of this battle; they are the men and women who are our Behavioral Health Techs.  More often than not, the Tech is the first one present when someone in treatment starts to get anxious and filled with doubt and wants to run.  These  amazing men and women have a sixth sense about these things because in that client they see themselves, they know [...]

From a Father’s Perspective

Written by an anonymous father of one of our alumni My son was headed down a very dark path for many years, beginning around the age of 13. The path was getting darker and darker as the years went by. I was at wits end not knowing where to turn. The fear of getting that phone call that my son had overdosed was tearing me apart. It was causing tremendous strain in all aspects of my life. It affected my work, my relationship with my current wife (my son’s stepmom), and my social life. The stress was all consuming. My [...]

How’s That Resentment Working Out?

Well I got another creepy e-mail. This one was from Resentment.  To: Tamara Evans From: Resentment Cc: Addiction, Relapse, Death Subject: How’s that working out for you? Oh hey. It’s your not-so-new friend Resentment. How you doing? Pretty good, huh? Yeah, hah. So, I’ve been on your mind a lot lately. I hear some bullsh*t about how the fourth step of this twelve-step program you’re doing will have that effect. Personally, I like it. Relapse and I have been talking, and she tells me that it makes our good friend Addiction SO happy when I’m on your mind. He just [...]

Courage; What Does it Even Mean?

By: Phillip S., Transformations alumnus    The strength to persevere in the face of danger and fear In fact, it’s a noun, but it acts like a verb It’s an action word The courage to change the things I can; to take a stand To be a man, to lend a helping hand; abandon my wasteland Change may take action and action may take work But what is our sanity actually worth? What kind of legacy are we leaving on earth? Everybody’s got something to say Everybody replays the clichés But our lip service is worthless it’s a dozen a [...]

Addiction is a Family Disease

By: Laura Lawrence, MA, CAP, Director of Outpatient and Family Services Time and time again we hear that addiction is a family disease. What exactly does that mean?  We aren’t the ones using alcohol and drugs!  It is often difficult for us to see our role in the addicts use and even more difficult to separate ourselves from the drama and consequences that are part of everyday life in addiction. One way to look at it is to compare the way an addict needs their drink or drug with the way we need the addict.  If they are Ok, so are [...]

Thank GOD (more on that later, we will talk). I cc’d Death on this email to [...]
