8 Years Strong since My Successful Heroin Drug Rehab

I often ask myself, “How have I done it?” and maybe I\'m just that bad at math. But I just counted 8 years since I successfully completed my heroin drug rehab at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches. Those first few months of staying clean were the most grueling test I have ever passed, and I would be a liar if I told you I am completely over the temptation. Looking back, I have always called upon the advice I was given at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches to overcome the daily temptation to grab that spike just one last time. When I\'m stressing out and having a bad day, I may recall that first delightful rush, how all my worries disappeared in an instant, and how I know I could control myself this time and… “Stop!” is the word that immediately floods my conscience after these thoughts, as I know that acting on them would be the equivalent of me putting a gun to my head and pulling the trigger.

During my time at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, I learned that while I have so many strengths in this world, I will always be totally powerless to heroin if I were ever to use again. In these last 8 years since my heroin drug rehab at BHOPB, I have had to dig deep within myself to stay the course of sobriety. I will always be grateful to Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches for getting me off heroin. They gave me back a life that is today filled with more happiness and success than I would have ever dreamed possible after being a heroin addict for so many years.
