Art told us …”my first rehab was when I was 16 or 17. I think my parents found that I was smoking weed and they freaked out and it’s like go to rehab and that was 24 years ago.
I was in a year-long rehab, it was court-ordered so I was I was forced to be there and I learned a lot of stuff in there but my heart was it wasn’t in it.
I kind of didn’t really fake it while I was in there but I was trying to soak up all the knowledge that I was able to receive but as soon as I got out I knew I was going to get high and within two hours I was high.
All the previous treatment facilities that I’ve been to it was “all right here’s your workbook here’s all the reasons, your triggers, why you might use, and every single place it’s the exact same stuff just over and over and over.”
I think what happened to me was that I finally went inside myself to find what was causing all this pain. That I needed to find inside myself what I was trying to find everywhere else.
