"Upon entering Singing Trees, I was terrified, suicidal and feeling completely hopeless. I had lost touch with reality and lost myself. This was my second time in a rehab facility. I had failed the 1st time and relapsed and was afraid of doing so again. That fear had me stuck in a vicious cycle for many years. I was immediately met with love, compassion and open arms. No judgment, no blame only genuine sincerity.
I soon learned that the entire staff are all in recovery. They all had been where I was, they understood all the confusion, the anger, the insanity my life had become. I felt completely comfortable and safe which enabled me to open up and let those feelings out so I could understand my addiction and behaviors.
Singing Trees gave me the tools to recover my life, to put the past behind me, to let go of the chaos and drama. I no longer needed drugs and alcohol to achieve this. I found myself, a new strength and most of all a sense of peace and serenity that I’ve never had before.
Singing Trees saved my life and the quality of it in more ways than I can say. I will be forever grateful. I now have the strength and courage to face life and whatever comes."
"I came to Singing Trees broken, confused and aimless, bereft of my sanity, physical health and any sense direction. Singing Trees Recovery Center provided me with the proper blend of nurturing, structure, and clinical help that I desperately needed at that time. Through the lessons learned at Singing Trees Recovery Center, I have regained an interest and engagement in life. I entered homeless, I now own my home. I entered unemployable, I now have a rewarding career. I entered unable to sustain a loving relationship, I now am married, have an amazing wife, and a beautiful child. I no longer live in fear of what the next day holds.
Words cannot express the amount of gratitude and love that I have for this wonderful program and their fantastic staff."
Anil - September 2011
When I came to Singing Trees in January of 2011, my alcohol addiction was out of control. The consequences for my life were devastating. I had lost hope.
i was warmly welcomed and then immediately plunged into the program. I was challenged at all times, forced to look at all times, forced to look at my addiction and denial, but always felt safe and often had much fun. the counselors were warm, caring,and professional. Group counseling sessions explored addictions and denial and helped develop practical and spiritual tools that are central to my sobriety. Individual sessions-at least four a week-focussed on my specific needs and set individual goals.
The residential cabins are comfortable and attractive. The natural setting, a short walk down to the Eel River, was a source of recreation and spirituality.
Today, with help from Singing Trees, I have hope and confidence twoard a sober, productive, enjoyable life. I have learned the the work of dealing with addiction is never over.Aftercare is an essential part of the program and has been very helpful in my sobriety.
I will remember the Singing Trees Program warmly and recommend it without reservation to others who struggle with addiction.
My name is Patty and I came into STRC on July 29, 2010 a 57 year old Alcoholic/Drug addict. After 43 years of on and off battles with my addictions, I was given the gift of a 30-Day stay. STRC gave me the knowledge that what I had was treatable disease and provided me with the guidance, support, and tools I needed to manage my life.
what makes STRC unique is not only its beautiful setting in the Redwoods along the Eel River, but its entire staff. The staff have all walked the road of addiction and bring their own experiences and knowledge to people like me who have the desire and willingness to change.
I truly believe i would not be where I am today if it were not for the help i received here.
