My Only Regret Is Having Waited So Long

I am ashamed to admit that I have been in inpatient or residential treatment at five other facilities before I finally could afford to switch insurance carriers to one which covered Castlewood, my at-home treatment team's first choice 7 years ago. My only regret is having waited so long. Your staff, including the insightful and compassionate direct care providers, were able to see beyond the food into what I really needed to address. I never felt alone on this journey. I was allowed, even encouraged, to be an active participant in creating and modifying my treatment plan. When I needed extra support, it was always provided. I am not "cured" but I am prepared for the next step. Actually, I am excited about it, when a few months ago I couldn't have told you what excitement felt like. ~ 10/7/2014
