Ashley Fothergill – Starting At Rock Bottom (Stories Of Addiction Recovery)


Coming off of anything is basically going
to feel the same. Once you’re clean, you’re going to have
a clear conscience for the first time in forever. You’re gonna feel okay. You’re gonna slowly get your personality
back. It’s just amazing the growth in people – once
they become clean off everything, like, witnessing that is amazing. An expectation of detox is that it’s going
to be, like, completely terrible. And in a place like this we make sure that
it’s not. We medically help you with your needs. We take care of you, we make sure you’re
well-nourished. You’re not without support, you’re not
120% uncomfortable. You’re getting helped. I am very confident that anyone can get well
from rock-bottom because I’ve seen it. I’ve seen it happen here. Everyday, I see it. People that come in and they’re just so
broken and they’ve lost everything. And they stick with it and they go through
the program and they continue to aftercare. And, like, those success stories just proves
that anyone in this world can do it. Detoxing is not fun. Like, there’s no fun way to detox. There’s no easy way to detox. It’s gonna suck, it’s not gonna be easy. But the gifts of sobriety and being in recovery
are, honestly, endless. And I think that’s what a lot of people
need to hear because you’re hopeless when you come in. You’re hopeless. You’re broken. You don’t really think there’s much out
there in the world for you, but there definitely is.
