It’s a mistake to sacrifice your privacy!
In the scramble that precedes getting help with an alcohol related problem, it’s easy to forget about what happens afterwards. Leaving your alcohol abuse and dependence behind you isn’t the same as leaving your history behind.
Here you will only be working with Dr. Barnes and Dr. Wilson. Most other programs employ former clients, well meaning volunteers and other staff who can give in to the urge to gossip. Don’t let yourself be embarrassed, or worse, by risking the exposure you’re trying to avoid while taking care of your problem.
Groups fuel the gossip mill!
We don’t do groups either. Many of our clients have been to AA and other meetings and come away shocked by the public exposure. Residential treatment centers pose the same problem, or worse, to anyone who values their privacy, as everyone should. Think Lindsey Lohan and Dr. Phil.
