By | Music | No Comments

In order to make it through rehab, I had to basically have my own soundtrack. The music was what got me to remain focused each day. I would listen to songs that always got me to pay attention before using. Plus, I also added in new songs that helped me feel motivated.

How My First Week of Rehab Went

By | Benefits of a Luxury Rehab | No Comments

My first week of rehab was interesting, I guess you could say. The pain was constant, but things were obviously changing during that time.
