All Kinds of News for March 08, 2017
Sabrina is the most recent graduate of Ginger’s House. She chose to continue her treatment by agreeing with the recommendation to enter transitional care after completing an inpatient drug and alcohol treatment program. At graduation, here are some things she had to say about her time at Ginger’s House:
“I entered the program fearful that I would relapse. I was defensive, argumentative and self-seeking. I really struggled my first few months, but the staff were all so supportive. They were good at holding tight boundaries and being very respectful when they called me on my actions. I learned a lot about living with other people and social skills in general. They really support people with their recovery work.
But it also helps with your behaviors. They really helped me understand my behavior patterns and my negative effect on others. I learned a lot about how my family and upbringing contributed to my reactionary response to people. I identified and practiced a variety of ways to cope with my emotions, such as breathing exercises, meditations, and listening to classical music. I love the staff, the other women, and the house… Ginger’s House saved my life. I also had a lot fun in the program. I loved the activities we’d do together. I will always remember spending the holidays there and really enjoying being sober for the first time in my life. “
