In late 2013, I moved to Dothan, AL. Approximately six months later, I found myself falling back into the grip of drinking once again. I knew immediately that I was going to need some help and began making phone calls. It seemed that no cared or would offer any type of help to me. Then by grace and mercy, my phone rang. It was the staff from The Journey Detox. After our conversation, they came to me and brought me back to the unit where I could get help when no one else would.
My personal experiance with The Journy Detox was one of the greatest in my life. The staff were always very helpful and encouraged long-term treatment, which I took the suggestion and recieved it and am still sober today. Living a prosperous and happy life.
My experiance with The Journey has been very enlightining, and I have learned a lot about myself. I know now I have people I can fall back on. Maybe this will be my last journey. If not, I know who I can turn To.
I have just left a place called The Journey Detox and Recovery in Ashland. I have been struggling with all kinds of diffrent addictions my whole life. I have been to numerous rehabs, but I have never been in my 38 years of life been to a place like The Journey.
I nearly died in an accident involving me and a small vehicle where I had to be extracted out of my car with the jaws of life. I nearly lost an arm and broke my neck and hip. After God saved my lifeliterally, I died in the ambulance. I became addicted to perscription pills, and felt as if I could’nt getout of bed. I felt like I had the flu. After two years of complete fear and misery, I heard about this detox center from my loving brother, that also deals with addictions. In May 2019, we lost our older brother to an overdose. His heart stopped.
I feel so alive, so great when I arrived at The Journey. They told me everything was going to be alright. They actually understood me. They had the same addictions before as well. They gave me tranquility. The kind nursing staff checked my other health problems. I just want to say thanks to this wonderful, caring, understanding group of people called The Journey. Who have actually been down this horrible and miserable road.
Thank you sincerely,
My experience at The Journey has been far diffrent than any other detox and in a great way! I am a chronic detoxer. I have been to more than I remember all over Alabama and two other states. I would usually leave AMA or get high the second I got out. I stayed irritated with employees because it was just a bunch of textbook groups led by people who had no clue how I felt. They had never been in my shoes! What did they know? I wasn’t going to listen to them.
Today, I am so grateful I found The Journey. I’m actually willing to listen because the counselors have been where I am. I enjoy groups because someone has my same disease is sober and happy and willing to share how it worked for them. I can respect that so much more because it worked for them. The entire staff is willing to stop and listen if that’s what you need. There is a true feeling that everyone at The Journey cares including nurses on down. They want to make sure we don’t live another day like we are. They take the time to teach us to cope with this horrible disease. I have learned and listened more here than any other detox I’ve been to!
I promise you this much, the staff at The Journey were once where you are now, and they have hope for you. They are my new-found family. I love them dearly.
