Mackenzie Phillips Drug Rehab Success Story

Mackenzie Phillips Drug Rehab Success Story

“I kind of grew up on television. I was what they call a child star. I also grew up in a family that used and abused drugs. My dad was a rock star in the 60’s. Drugs were the norm in my family.
“I came to this Drug Addiction Treatment Center addicted to heroin and cocaine, having just been bailed out on felony drug possession charges. I felt like my life was over.
“I’d had 10 years clean time in the past, but I felt defeated by my relapse. I had done many different programs through the years trying to handle my drug usage. What I didn’t know was that this Drug Treatment Program is different and approaches the whole issue differently than any other recovery program I’d experienced. This Program allowed me to break free from my past by helping me solve the problems that I was trying to solve with drugs! Once I solved these problems, drugs were no longer an option! It allowed me to confront what I have done and take responsibility for the actions that led me nearly to the point of death.
“I was welcomed into a family of amazing people who truly cared about me. I was given the opportunity to repair past difficulties, under the caring and watchful eye of the staff.  The program has given me the freedom to move forward into my future, a future I did not think I had.
“I’m clean and well, no longer eaten alive by my past.  I’m responsible and accountable, ready to live the life I’ve always hoped for!
“This is the beginning of my life. I’ve learned who I am and what I am and I like what I’ve found out about myself. I can now move forward with my life, letting the past remain behind me and that means that life is new and I am new.”

Drug rehab helps people discover reason behind their taking drugs

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

” During the past week of my drug rehab, I have been able to examine my life and past indiscretions. Throughout the process I experienced several things. At times I felt guilty, sometimes I was angry at myself, sometimes I was saddened by my past behavior, and other times I laughed at how young and stupid I was, but overall I felt a major relief deep in my soul for letting that garbage go. It is off my chest. I can accept it for what it is, and it no longer has an effect on me. I can see that I was doing these things not as the real me, but as a clouded, frightened version of myself.

“I realized that a lot of the things I did stemmed from being insecure about myself, my purpose, and my future. I allowed drugs to cloud me to the point that I was numb to the world and told myself I didn’tcare, when deep down I really did care. This caused me a lot of pain and made me turn to more drugs I got caught in a vicious cycle. I let the fire and drive inside myself to do well and be the best person I can be get dim. I put on a good front so that people didn’t notice how I felt about myself and about life. I lost my self-confidence.

“Now I can see the real me. I feel good about who I am. I feel confident and happy. I am focused and determined to continue on this path. I wake up every morning excited and happy to be me and I look forward to the day. I feel like a weight has been lifted and that I can and willb e the person that I want to be.”

I hadn’t realized it until now, but, I’m back!

“I came to this program in a rather terrible condition. I felt as though I would never recover hope. I thought myself a lost cause. I had spiraled out so far I had no idea who I was anymore and why my life had gone to pieces. I … felt distant and empty when I looked inside.

I didn’t realize it at the time but [the sauna program] gave me a body that operated at full speed again. My mind became clear as it had not been for ages.

I have never quite met a challenge such as this. I was opening my heart and changing my perception in a way that could only be called amazing. I learned so much about myself from doing the simplest exercises. All of a sudden I was on top of the world again. I was opening my mind to a way of thinking that I had allowed myself to believe that I would never achieve. I became in touch with my senses and started to feel the world around me for what seemed like the first time.

I am forever grateful to the staff for guiding me through the darkest parts of my life and never once discouraging me. I have faced my inner demons, shed my addiction and I’ve completely rebuilt my entire self. I can feel again, see clearly again, love again. I have miraculously saved my life. I hadn’t realized it until now, but, I’m back! This program saved my life. I’m free. No more addiction. I can’t believe how far you guys have helped me, how strong you’ve taught me I could become. I love each and every person that has been there for me along the way.

I’m finally free!”


I now feel inner peace and self respect

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

“This program saved my life! The program and staff took me from being the effect of my drug addiction to being cause over my actions. I now feel inner peace and self respect I have never before experienced. I love myself and my life now and it’s as if I have witnessed a miracle. I think of my friends here as family and have them to thank for my transformation from rock bottom to a life of responsibility and success.”

This program has saved my life

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

“I came here believing that I would be a heroin addict forever. After overdosing twice and almost losing everything I ever had, I knew it was time for a change. This program has saved my life by completely changing me into a better father, husband, son, and brother. I have gained control over every aspect of my body, my communication with myself and other people is better than ever. I would like to thank everyone here for giving me a chance to start over and live a long successful life.”
