My family and friends had somewhat of an intervention for me. I didn’t want to go to treatment, though deep down inside I knew that my drinking had taken over my life and had been for the past 3 years. At the time I was a 36 year old female and on paper, highly accomplished in my career. However, I was at a point where I felt completely lost. I had moved to a new city, lost a long term relationship, accumulated debt, and on top of that, had an overwhelming sense of shame and guilt that I wasn’t exactly where I wanted to be in life. With all of this, drinking became my only escape and it became my life, and there didn’t seem to be any hope for me. I was literally hopeless.
When my family suggested Klean I was very adamant about not being an alcoholic. I did not want to go to some treatment center that just pumped Alcoholic Anonymous into my brain, I wanted therapy. I truly believed that I had a lot of issues, both psychologically and behaviorally, that needed to be tended to. I knew I was a strong, talented, driven person…I just hadn’t seen that person in a long time and I wanted to know why I was the way I was. Klean seemed like a perfect option for me because of its Dual Diagnosis program.
I stayed at Klean for 30 days. The programming, therapists and staff are all amazing. I definitely think you get what you want out of Klean. They provided everything you need to get on the right track, it just depends on you to do the work when you are there. I did the work and I saw people that didn't. So bottom line is, this place can be life changing if that's what you truly want from it. I was a miserable shell of a person prior to Klean. No self-esteem, no dreams, no self worth. I let people walk all over me and drank to forget the pain that was building up inside of me. Klean gets into the core issues that are causing this self medication. I fell lighter now, and I've got my sunshine back. I haven't had my sunshine in a long time.
