My experience here at Discovery Institute has been very valuable during my 90 day stay. I have learned more about myself and the importance of applying the tools Discovery has taught me once I leave. Without the treatment I received here it would have been much more difficult to uncover these fears I am now overcoming…With the help of caring counselors, I was challenged to work on some areas I struggled with. I want to the my counselor for caring about my overall welfare. I have learned a lot from her. She never gave up on me but instead stuck by me until the end because she believed in me. Thank you Discovery Institute for your help. I am forever grateful and will keep all the staff and peers in my prayers and heart.

Dear Steve and Pete, I enjoy my time here at Discovery Institute. I really believe that the structure program is working for me. I arrived at Discovery broken, scared and spiritually bankrupt hurt with an unfillable void. Sadly, I was at the end of my rope. I had no clue as to why I abused drugs & no reasoning for my unspeakable actions. I have been working the program for 25 days and everyone agrees, I’m a totally different person. Today I am a better me than I ever was. Throughout this process I have learned that my addiction is a disease and with the help of my amazing counselor, Lauren & the wonderful staff here, I am on the road to recovery. Discovery saved my life. I want to do for discovery what it did for me, be better. My experience at Discovery has inspired me to help the sick & suffering who have been through the same hell as I have.

When I first arrived at the Discovery Institute I didn’t have gratitude or acceptance. Also, I was still in denial that my life was unmanageable and that I could still control my drug use and/or the lifestyle I was living. Going through this process at the beginning, I had anger towards the court system, myself and events that happened in the past….Realizing that counselors here knew a lot more than I did; all I needed to do was listen, surrender and prepare to change my life. I didn’t know who I was or what purpose I was serving. Learning from my counselor the most knowledgeable thing was that I do have a purpose; I deserve the life I dreamt of as a kid. I’m truly grateful I had the chance to be a part of Discovery Institute and had the counseling I’ve had since coming here. I feel new and improved.

Although it was a short stay at Discovery, I feel I got a lot out of meetings, commitments, feed back, and advice from my family. But most of all, I felt great progress happened in group and one on one’s with counselors. I feel ready to deal with reality on my own and with support from family. Overall, it was a good experience as I feel I have learned many ways to deal with recovery through meetings, sponsors and a Higher Power; and no longer need alcohol to function.
