Becky R. believes in miracles. How else can she explain the change in her life from two years ago when she heard a judge say these words after her arrest for selling ecstasy to an undercover agent: “You will spend a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of 45 in the Illinois Department of Corrections.”Continue Reading Imprisoned by Addiction, Freed by Recovery
People from all walks of life suffer from anxiety disorders. Now a new study sheds light on who is most affected by this oftentimes debilitating condition. The research, published in the journal Brain and Behavior, suggests that women are almost twice as likely to experience anxiety as men. Led by Olivia Remes, PhD candidate at the University of Cambridge, this study also found that people from Western Europe and North America are more likely to suffer from anxiety than people from other cultures. “Anxiety is debilitating, disabling, and can increase the risk for suicide,” Remes said. “It can cause significant distress in many areas of someone’s life … [it] can make people less productive at work and can also increase the risk for other serious conditions such as depression and alcohol abuse.” It is important, she notes, that people who think they might be suffering from the symptoms of anxiety — restlessness, muscle tension, an inability to focus, insomnia, constant worry and fear, among others — seek help. If left untreated, anxiety can become quite severe and lead to other mental health problems, which makes treatment of any of the disorders more difficult.Continue Reading Women, People Under 35 at Greatest Risk of Anxiety
It’s time to hit the pause button on your regularly scheduled life and do some self-reflection. Read the following statements and mark them true or false, based on whether they apply to you.
- I often find myself putting other people’s needs ahead of my own.
- I have trouble saying no to people because I don’t want to disappoint them or have them disapprove of me.
- Making other people happy, having them rely on me, earning their appreciation or praise, is incredibly fulfilling to me.
- I have a tendency to go out of my way to please people, try to get them to like me, or give them what I think they need.
- I frequently go along with what other people want or defer to their preferences to keep the peace or make them happy.
I am truly grateful for my stay at Promises. I've been to a few programs in the past and was shocked at the level of compassionate care I received from all levels of staff. Before entering Promises I was in a terrifying space, I saw no light for myself at the end of the tunnel. After a few weeks, I don't carry the same negative outlook on my future I had coming in. I am thankful for the commitment the treatment team made to me to put me in the best possible place to recover.

Promises was an amazing treatment center that has changed my outlook on sobriety. I have been through many treatments before and Promises has been the only one to help recovery stick. I reccomend this 30 day inpatient program to all who even slightly think they may have an addiciton problem, because if it this place was able to help and change the mess that I was, I know it can do the same for many others.
