Women’s Drug Rehab Reminds Us All to be Grateful
People wind up in women’s drug rehab for a variety of reasons. Some suffer from a dual diagnosis and turn to drugs and alcohol in an attempt to self-medicate their symptoms. Some were victims of domestic violence and tried to cope with what happened to them through substance abuse. And others still were just following the example set forth for them from a young age by a parent or guardian. The point is that no one intentionally sets out to develop an addiction to drugs or alcohol but it’s still something that happens every day. It’s up to each and every one of us to remember to be grateful for everything we do have, like the air in our lungs and our futures, as too many before us lost their battles with addiction and lost their lives as a result of it. We at Destination Hope: The Women’s Program could not be more grateful, humbled and honored that so many of you have chosen our women’s drug rehab to help guide you out of the darkness and toward the lighted path of recovery.
Continuing on the theme of gratitude, we recently decided to take a page out of the Alcoholics Anonymous program and ask that each of our clients make a gratitude board. A gratitude board is a written list of all the things for which we are grateful. The act of creating and re-reading our individual gratitude boards can do wonders at reassuring ourselves whenever we’re feeling scared, depressed or self-pitying. It can also reassure us that committing ourselves to our recovery at a women’s drug rehab is the best thing for our future.
We’d like to share a random sampling of some of our amazingly brave client’s gratitude boards with you. We hope that they’re able to inspire you and remind you of all the things in life you have to be grateful for as they did for us.
