Hello, my name is Michael K. I am 25 years old and an alcoholic/drug addict. I have struggled with alcohol and drug use for years, living a life of loneliness and despair. I was definitely suffering from a hopeless state of body and mind with, seemingly, no way out of the rat-race known as addiction. Years had flown by; my life crumbling and shattering all around me day by day. After a much-needed reality check was I finally ready to choose a better way of life. Scottsdale Recovery Center was there waiting for me with open and loving arms; arms which embraced and cared for me when all I knew was a life full of suffering and bitter contempt. I enrolled in and completed their 90 day program, much to my surprise. Setting out and accomplishing goals is not something that an addict/alcoholic like myself is capable of doing: Scottsdale Recovery Center made that a reality for me. They offer wonderfully therapeutic activities such as Yoga, meditation, and fantastic Intensive Out-patient therapy, all run by professional, personable, and truly empathetic counselors and instructors. Getting involved in all of these activities has granted me a wealth of insight not only in myself, but also in the world around me. Now, after much hard work and a boat load of support, Scottsdale Recovery Center offered to invite me into their family as a staff member. I feel truly blessed to be able to give back to other suffering addicts and alcoholics; to guide them and show them that there truly is a better way of living, without drugs and/or alcohol. Scottsdale Recovery Center gave me that blueprint for living a healthy and productive life today and, for that, I am eternally grateful. Scottsdale Recovery Center is truly tops in my book. Thank you for helping me find ME again!
