The treatment offered at Therapia was the most helpful aspect of my recovery. The 12 steps are where most people in addiction and alcoholism find the solution. The 12 steps are keeping hundreds of thousands of people clean in the fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous and keeping millions of alcoholics worldwide sober in the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. Therapia taught me and familiarized me with the 12 Steps and the staff assisted me in working and implementing the 12 Steps into my daily life. Therapia also helped me to get honest and vulnerable about my past, my addiction and my dishonest defense mechanisms I used to preserve my using. Another critical skill I learned while in Therapia is how to communicate. As addicts we learn to manipulate, lie, cheat and steal. Today I am able to be authentic, honest and accountable in my communication with my wife, family and with my fellows. I could go on about the other tools and skills I've gained from my treatment at Therapia, a few others are Shame Resilliance, Self Love, Setting Boundaries and How to Identify and Eliminate Codependent Behavior in my life. The lack of awareness and focus on these issues fed my addiction. Today I am aware and engaged in working steps. I attended an upper-scale Treatment Facility in the Provo Canyon that had all of the amenities you could ever ask for. The thing I missed at my time there was the Steps and the Skills that I have learned at Therapia. This is what keeps you clean, the Steps and the Spiritual Principles. There was nothing I see as a weakness at Therapia. There are more expensive treatment centers that have every amenity but in my experience at probably THE premier treatment center in Utah, they missed the opportunity to teach an assist with the implementation of the Steps and the Spiritual Principles of recovery into the lives of their clients. I relapsed 2 days out of that treatment center. I have 156 days clean from Therapia. and living recovery in the fellowship of NA. All of this began at Therapia for me.
