I entered The Life Center of Galax, completely broken and hopeless, quite near death and with little belief that I could be helped. Since alcohol is physically addictive, it is important for an individual wishing to end their addiction to do so under proper medical supervision in order to prevent dangerous health repercussions. The Life Center provided a treatment program that not only saved my life, but provided me with a foundation of recovery. As of now I am in my fifth year of continuous sobriety and I could not be happier. I attribute the dedication of the Life Center staff and the caring and competent manner in which they took more of me as the largest factor within my ability to recover from a previously hopeless state of being.
After Yellowstone helped someone else I knew, I helped a friend go here who was addicted to Heroin. He didn't want to go to rehab, so I wasn't real…
Galax saved my life. The path I was on and the amount of drugs I was taking were killing me. I was so angry at my family at first for making me go to treatment and I was not very cooperative in the beginning. The staff would not let me quit on myself and got me to really see my life and what my problems were. It has been a difficult road but I wouldn’t change a thing.
I had been to 7 day detox, a behavioral center and, then, finally Galax. I learned more there abt myself, my addiction and depression than I learned anywhere ever. They kept me comfortable while detoxing, and all the while, I got support and kindness. It's not all rainbows n butterflies but one clean day is worth so much more than I ever imagined.
