Dual Diagnosis Treatment Program – Lori’s Video Review
In this video, Lori describes her experience with alcohol as a binge drinker. She talks about her ability to go long periods without drinking, but would then have an episode of binge drinking. She stayed sober for 12 years, but then started drinking again because she thought she could drink socially. She did that for a while, but then it escalated.
She realized that she had a problem that included hiding her drinking, as well as feelings of guilt and shame about being a substance abuser. Lori says she was fortunate that the people closest to her saw through her efforts to conceal what she was doing. She entered treatment at Sovereign Health for many reasons, but mainly to develop better coping skills in order to deal with her drinking, as well as post-traumatic stress and confusions about where she was in her life. She describes her positive experience in Sovereign Health’s Dual Diagnosis Program, and says that it is effective for people who are willing to do the work that is required.*
