“I took back ownership of my life.” – A Canvas Health Substance Use Client Shares Their Story

I wasn’t living in a positive state of mind when I began my substance use treatment at Canvas Health. However, about two hours into my first group I decided to change my thought and embrace the group and be as open as I could be. From then on I started to get to know the group, get to know the staff at Canvas Health, and truly begin my outpatient treatment as an individual who wanted to gain the knowledge and tools to take ownership back into my life.

Bob Jones has been a great counselor and was always very helpful, honest, and allowed my different views on some of the curriculum to be heard. I never felt that I was being pushed or forced to think the way Bob did. Instead, I felt that I was always the boss of what I was going to get out of my treatment, and went every week to my group to learn and help others see that a sober life can still be fun and worth living for. I know for a fact that my biggest lesson I have gotten out of treatment has been to love myself and have confidence in all areas of my life, something I had never done before.

From the front desk staff, Lindsay, Bob, and to all the other counselors I have met along the way I can say without a doubt in my mind that they truly care for each and every one who walks through those doors. I would highly recommend Canvas as a place to seek help if needed, or assistance in their journey to recovery. –Canvas Health Client
