Horizon Recovery is a type of program that worked for me. I didn’t feel it was an option for me to spend 4 to 6 weeks away from my work. I went to Horizon because it was an IOP (intensive out patient) program.
After many years of alcohol use, and trying to quit on my own. I learned that there is more to addiction than to just stop drinking. I have come to believe that you can’t quit and have a complete and healthy recovery on your own.
I liked the fact that Christianity and God was a part of the program and that my personal counselor was a Christian.
All though at the time I didn’t want my wife and family involved in my recovery, Horizon strongly urged that they be included. This proved to be wise council. It helps each side to understand what’s going on and especially what’s going on with you.
It has been 2 ½ years since I entered the program and I have remained alcohol free. My marriage and family life is stronger than ever before and I have a new out-look n life.
