When I went into Wilderness Treatment Center I was just going to get the courts off of my back. I knew that my life wasn’t going well but I just thought with the courts off of my back, It would be fine. The courts were the problem not me. But after some help from Shane, Rob and the other awesome counselors I saw that was not the case. Even if I did get the courts off of my back, it would most likely be temporary. It also helped me to see where else I had problems and that was just about in every area of my life, like relationships with family, friends and girlfriends. They helped me to rebuild relationships with my family, which now are continuing to grow at five months sober. We did things like the bucket task, which involved me carrying about a 100 pound bucket, which taught me to ask for help when I needed it. I do not think I would have been able to make it this far without the work I put in there and my counselor Rob Brecky who helped me through it. Lastly, the three-week backpacking trip. This was one of the best experiences of my life. It helped me to see a lot about myself and showed me that I can have a great time in sobriety. I thank Wilderness Treatment Center for my sobriety and my life.
