Biggest Takeaway from Cycles of Change: The willingness to be honest with himself.
Andrews’s story of cocaine addiction begins in Boise Idaho. He enjoyed the “party” lifestyle but eventually realized that he needed help. It was either find treatment or be homeless. Andrew chose to go to rehab at Cycles of Change and realized he was fortunate to have that option.
“The staff has helped me a lot”
“They were always there for me when I needed to talk”
Not having his cell phone for about 30 days really helped him. He would get stuck on his phone for hours and by not having it, he could focus on getting proper treatment for his cocaine addiction. Gathering his thoughts, and learning what was triggering his behaviors was very beneficial. Working with the caring staff and knowing they were there for him was also a huge help.
“Brad was a great Therapist. He really helped me with some meditation. James was always there for me too”
