Thankful for the Journey
Share your story

I thought YSAS was going to be very clinical but it’s very comfy, very welcoming and  warming. The staff are very flexible in terms of meeting the needs of everyone who comes to YSAS because everyone does have different needs and they are great to communicate with not just about coming down and detoxing but anything like stress and anxiety.

The coping mechanisms and education were the best things about being at YSAS. It’s a great place to detox but the biggest step is stepping out of the door here and continuing not to drink or use drugs. The ability to walk past a liquor store and say no, no I am not going to drink. The gym has been a god sent for me. In terms of not drinking and filling my time with something other than 2-3 bottles of wine a day.

For me the most challenging part of the detox was when it came to the weekend and doing everyday tasks sober.  Alcohol was a daily thing for me. From the moment I woke up to the moment I went to sleep.

My dream is to be a professional actor. It has been my dream since god knows when. That’s the big dream. But life is a journey and I am thankful for the journey. It adds to my experience.
