“I came to Optimum Health convinced that I was not an alcoholic even though the ride there left my father’s car smelling like my favorite alcoholic beverage. I was surprised that the detox water smelled like my favorite alcoholic beverage and then I no longer smelled like it. Working with my emotions was difficult as I was in denial. My phrase that I had to work with was “I am not NOT an alcoholic.” It worked. I remember passing a liquor store on the way home and getting extremely angry that I had let it ruin my life. Normally, the liquor store calls out to me and I have a hard time resisting the urge to go in and dive into my favorite drink. Not this time. I wasn’t making my father’s car smell like liquor and I was actually angry that I had let the liquor in that ABC store ruin my life. What a change.”

“I had been doing cocaine for many years. At one point, I gave my whole pay check for drugs. As a result, I had no feeling in my hands from all the drugs that I had done. I had already been clean for 5 years by the time I came to Optimum Health so, I expected nothing. I was surprised that the water actually smelled like cocaine. Smelling the water even made my nose tingle the way snorting made my nose tingle. Imagine that! After 5 years of not doing any, it was still there in my system. The most pleasant surprise came after the detox when I realized that I could feel my fingers again. I just kept rubbing myself and saying, “I can feel me!” That was a wonderful day!”

“Though my husband decided I had to go to Optimum Health because nothing else was working, I did not want to go. I expected nothing because I was sure that if the large traditional facility that I was going to was unable to help me, Optimum Health would not be able to do so.
I was very argumentative and persistent as I expressed my disbelief. I left my appointment convinced that I had not been helped. However, after eating my next meal, I noticed that I was able to keep it down for the first time in a long time. The next morning I woke up feeling good. All withdrawal symptoms had subsided. I was shocked.
I called Optimum Health and gave them my good news. I told them that I just could not believe that withdrawal free assistance is available and no one is shouting it from the roof tops!”
