Review for National Council On Alcoholism And Drug Dependence, Inc., Sacramento Region Affiliate, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began Prop. 36 program after completing an inpatient rehabilitation program. In the first level of the program, I was educated on the effects that drugs have on my body. I was given tools in regards to dealing with my family issues in a more healthy way. I was also given techniques to utilize in order to avoid a relapse. My individual counseling sessions gave me an opportunity to share my personal experiences with an educated counselor and being open to receive constructive feedback. The experience of counselors that have walked a similar road made it alot easier to be completely honest without fear of judgement. I was taught to remain teachable and to maintain a spirit of willingness and to make the same efforts in recovery that I made while I was active in my addiction. I was taught there is hope and a better life out there besides using drugs.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

My counseling sessions and being educated about my disease.
