I just felt like a number at other treatment centers, like an assembly line of people who were just going through over and over. It is actually really sad to say; people are not getting the quality of care they deserve at these places. And then when you come to Peaks your treatment plan is individualized, it’s tailored to you and what your needs are. I came in with a backpack of trauma following me, legal troubles, the nonexistent relationships with my family, I had burned so many bridges. Then at Peaks, I was assigned to a great therapist, case management helped me with my court cases, and then I was in bad health so the medical team helped there. So I think having everything addressed as a whole, that is really what it took to turn the tide and get me out of the hole I was in.
