This audio is transcribed from a client testimony follow-up at our local treatment and detox facility.
Interviewer: Please state your name and where you are from.
Client: I’m A. Sorenson from Utah.
Interviewer: What was your life like before you came to treatment?
Client: My life was really really really crappy. I was strung out and I was sad, and I hated myself and I didn’t want to live anymore to be honest.
Interviewer: What made you choose Solutions Based Treatment and Detox?
Client: My mom actually looked at their website and saw these videos that I’m making and she decided that is something she wanted. I went through one of the worst days of my life and I decided I needed to come.
Interviewer: How has Solution Based helped you?
Client: Oh my gosh! That’s a lot. They’ve given me the tools that I needed to learn how to love myself again. They’ve taught me that addiction is a disease, it wasn’t who I am and that I am not defined by my disease. They taught me how to live sober and happy.
Interviewer: What’s been your most memorable moment here?
Client: That’s a very good question. There’s a lot. Probably our outings! We go to the beach alot and that has always been super fun in getting out of the house and into our own elements. Going bowling and to the movies and I like the meetings. The meetings are, they hit home.
Interviewer: What would you say to someone thinking about coming to Solution Based?
Client: Come! If you think you have a problem, you need to be here. If you are even thinking to come here, this is exactly where you need to be.
Interviewer: Can you think of anything we need to improve on?
Client: No. I can’t really think of anything this place needs to improve on. I think everything I have been through has been, has been exactly what I needed to be[go] through.
Interviewer: Anything else you’d like to add?
Client: You’ll be okay! Who ever is watching this, you will be okay, or your daughter or your son will be okay. Send them here and they’ll get through it. Happy!
