Dear Doctor El Asyouty and the entire Recovery Road team,
I’d like to express my gratitude and thanks for the help I’ve received through my out patient care provided by Recovery Road. I came into the program with severe depression, anxiety, and alcohol dependency.
I am familiar with out patient services as I’ve been before, and was very surprised and grateful for the care I received and what I found at Recovery Road. I came into the program with some trepidation that I would be getting 12-stepped, which I didn’t need as I was quite familiar with AA. What I found were some fantastic tools through Cognitive Behavior Therapy that allowed me to see the negative tape that was playing in my head, and how to change that outlook and identify what was actually real vs. perceived, and how to change that tape in my head in a more positive direction.
What I received was a recipe for living a more comfortable and happy life through identifying my negative thoughts and what the actual truth is, and therefore changing my reactions to situations. It was a real eye opener to see how much of my depression and anxiety issues where generated through my own thinking and outlook, and that through some simple identification and changes in my thoughts and actions, I could change a seemingly impossible situation to something manageable.
Our therapist Clyde was fantastic, as was the entire staff at Recovery Road, and I would highly recommend the program to anyone dealing with these multiple emotional and addictive issues. I found that combining the Recovery Road out-patient program with my 12-step program, and in addition to outside therapy as well, I have made huge progress and now not only have hope, but am confident that if I continue to apply the tools I learned at Recovery Road and stay sober, that I can be comfortable in my own skin, and happy again.
Thanks again to everyone at Recovery Road for getting me on the path to recovery and success.
