We have been delighted to care for the people listed below.
I am so very thankful for this drug and for those at Assisted Recovery Center of Georgia who have helped me begin my new sober life. For the past 16 years I have struggled with alcoholism. Having tried everything without long term success, I was at wits end.No matter how hard I tried to quit drinking, there was always a constant need for alcohol. Some might call it a craving, but for me it was more like a need. A constant, never-ending voice in my head. No matter what was going on, no matter how happy I was, there was always this part of my brain demanding alcohol. Naltrexone has taken this voice away! For the first time for as long as I can remember, there is silence -no more need for alcohol. This drug is such an important tool for any alcoholic.
I was going to graduate college. I was going to be a veterinarian. I was going to get married and have a boy named Sam and a girl named Olivia. We were all going to have a place in the country to ride our ponies. Instead, I dropped out of college, couldn’t keep a normal relationship, couldn’t even keep a job pouring coffee at a book store. I was convinced it was everyone else fault, and that it had nothing to do with my drinking. My mom found this web site after hearing about your program on the radio. I agreed to go, and it has been the first time in years I feel good about myself. I graduate from college next month!
When Rob got his promotion, one of his biggest concerns was that his drinking would prevent him from succeeding. He wanted to quit, but knew he needed help. I knew part of that help would require me to quit as well. So, I looked into a program that would help us both at the same time. I’m so glad I found the Assisted Recovery Center of Georgia. What set you apart for us was that we were able to stay in a suite together, get sober together, and learn how to lead a healthier life together. I just wanted to tell you guys that you have been great to us, and we’ll never forget the lessons we learned. Rob’s doing great, and we are BOTH still sober.

I have not touched a drop since I returned to New York and I love the fact that I haven’t had a hard time at all doing that. You all were monumental in assisting in my rebirth as a sober member of society, and I thank you all for that. In this day and age, common sense would dictate that you would use the latest medical or scientific d iscovery to cure a problem or disease. Yet every other program I looked into told me to follow a 12 step program and go to more AA meetings. Wasn’t that from the 30’s or something? Most addiction treatments seem to still use blood letting and leeches. Thank you for using a 21st Century approach that works.
It’s been an experience I’ll treasure the rest of my life. From the day I arrived, I’ve been treated with dignity and respect. You’ve made me feel that I deserve to have a good life; that I’m not defective or powerless. You offered me real recovery that has put me in charge of my life. How wonderful to feel the control I thought I had lost. You have helped me to see my strengths and the good that came from the hell I survived. I can now move on to be the person that I want to be. Each of you have a special place in my heart. I thank you with all that is me.
My life was in shambles, my family abandoned me. My wife was taking my kids and leaving me. Inpatient and 12 Step programs had not worked for me. My drugs of choice were cocaine and zanax, valium any benzo would do. If it wasn’t for ARC I would be in jail or worse, DEAD. ARC feels like family to me and I could tell they cared. The medical treatment and the medications prescribed to take away the cravings gave me time to focus on my recovery. ARC has around the clock emotional support. The education presented to me about the effects on my brain and body from the chemical abuse helped me understand how important my recovery was for my physical health. ARC stood behind me in the legal system and was willing to go to court with me. The group and behavioral therapy helped me so much. I am among peers who care about me and each other. I am now clean and sober and have my family back and will continue my peer group support. Every time I walk into ARC I am welcomed into a family with open arms.
I’ve been to hell and you are absolutely right about it being real. We don’t have to be abused by a system that doesn’t understand. I made the choice to take advantage of Assisted Recovery and the program they have to offer. I haven’t had a drink since Feb. 9th. You can do this too. They really and truly understand and will give you TLC along with the resources you need to find your way back to the life you’ve been missing. You are not alone. I sought help from clergy, AA, doctors, and family, but ignorance runs rampant among non alcoholics. You don’t need any of them to get sober. I did it. You can too. Call Assisted Recovery Centers of Georgia!
I was in such a bad place at that time I wasn’t even concerned about the legal ramifications. I was more worried about how I was going to get my hands on some more pills that afternoon. Well, to make a long story short, my attorney told me I had better get myself into a program before going to court. I had been to another one in town, and it obviously didn’t do me any good. So, I signed up to Assisted Recovery, and thought I could fake my way through another 28 days and look like a model citizen in front of the judge. Instead, you guys actually got me the help I needed in spite of myself. I ACTUALLY got clean. 3 years later, I’m still clean and not because of a court order! Thank you for my life back.
As my husband continued the 90 meetings in 90 days “treatment,” his anxiety disorder went undiagnosed. Two months later, he was in worse shape than he had ever been. By December, I had almost given up all hope. On a cold day in January, a miracle occurred. We flew to Georgia and he entered the Assisted Recovery program. There, he got med’s for his anxiety and a life-affirming way to live from the counselors. He has been sober for seven months now. Are we home free? No, there is always the possibility of relapse, but I think his chances are a lot better than they were before.
