12 Steps: The Role of Self Discovery in Drug & Alcohol Rehab


Nick: A lot of people talk about this program
of recovery, and I’ve actually found it to be much more than that a program of discovery. Jen: The idea of recovery is regaining things
that we’ve lost, but there’s also a component of discovery, and to be able to look within
oneself and find things that we never knew existed. Andrew: Before I got sober, I really had no
responsibilities. At the time leading up to coming here, I wasn’t working, just no accountability
and no direction in my life at all. I had no motivation to do anything, so drinking
and using was what I did. Duffy’s not only provided the tools for getting my life back
in order, it also helped me discover what I wanted to do with my life, and that’s help
others on a professional level. Nick: I’ve finally found the person that was
following me around for fifty-two years that I had never gotten to know, and that person
is the person who can change. Jen: To learn things about ourselves that
have been there all the time, that we just never noticed or were overshadowed by things
that were destructive. Nick: I’m really finding myself. I’m not doing
what I expect other people would think that I would do. I’m actually starting to speak
from my heart in my art and my music. Jen: Recovery really does involve discovery
and learning new things about ourselves, getting in touch with things that were presently unnoticed
or were not there at all.
