  • Strengths: clean, yoga, safe. Weaknesses: counselors were not helpful, not enough CBT OR scientific treatment. I think the main issue was that I was not ready yet.There needed to be more empathetic focus on acceptance/surrender.

  • I was admitted for 30 days at Endeavor House. I’ve been clean and sober for over seven months since then. The experience at Endeavor House was a new chapter in my life. I discovered so much about myself and about other people’s lives during my stay. Hearing everyone’s stories and processing together in groups is so powerful. I always thought that I had it so bad and no one suffered as much as I did. I quickly realized how ignorant I was. We all shared the same thing, we were powerless over alcohol and all mind altering substances. The staff and counselors were AMAZING. They work hard at keeping a cohesive and peaceful environment.
