Delray Treament Center Story Swirling in My Morning Cup of Coffee
“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”
— Sam Levenson
Waiting for my morning cup of coffee to warm me up, to warm me up and wake me up; I begin to think. I begin to think about a Delray treatment center. I start to think about Delray Beach, FL, I start to think about what it was like for me to be in a Delray treatment center. Then I think about all the people who weren’t and aren’t fortunate enough to go to a Delray treatment center. There are those who can’t and then there are those who don’t know how much they could benefit from a Delray treatment center. The cold and startling facts are most of the people who actually want to get sober and stay sober can’t afford something or anything close to a Delray treatment center. This is what I think about waiting for my morning cup of coffee to warm me up. The morning cup of coffee warms me up physically and it gets my engines running, my mind running and my mind runs where it wants to.
We are moving on, come run with me and my mind right now. We’re getting a little unorthodox right now.
I want to tell you all a story about a Delray treatment center. I went to speak at a detox doubling as a mental institution last night. I spoke at the state run facility for people who have been Baker or Marchman acted, or for those of you not familiar with term, people who have been involuntarily committed. Not all of them had a substance abuse problem some of the people there just had mental disorders. As I walked in and saw the people I would be speaking to, I felt no feelings of I am better than or even shock. I felt the cold nostalgia hit me that before I got to go to a Delray treatment center, before I made the decision to go to Palm Partners Recovery Center, I was sitting exactly where these people were sitting, not only in the type of facility they were in but also in the type of spiritual state which is scared, hopeless and desperate.
I got to share my story with these people and to see how they could relate to what I had to say, to watch them shake their heads in agreement with my own experience. It then flooded me with the feelings that no matter where we are; a Delray treatment center, a state run detox, on the streets, in addiction, in alcoholism, in our heads, we all have the same feelings because we are all made of the same substance and that is soul or being. All I could keep thinking is how lucky I was to step out of the place they were in and go to a Delray treatment center. While the Delray treatment center doesn’t keep me sober today it was a milestone on my journey in recovery. I today feel the connection I have with every person that walks this earth, especially my fellow addicts and alcoholics because I know the peril and the fear they have felt due to what I have learned at a Delray treatment center. Knowing there were people out there who had managed to overcome that fear and that peril was paramount for me in the beginning of my sobriety.
That’s one of the amazing things about a Delray treatment center, it brings people with the same problem together to find a common solution. It starts people, like myself who were sitting on a bed in scrubs, beaten and broken down, thinking the whole world was crashing down around them and it lifts them back up. A Delray treatment center is that person who sticks their hand out when you finally have decided you can’t get back up and when you reach out and take their hand, they even smile at you.
My morning cup of coffee has warmed me up and in the process I have told you a story. A story of human beings. A story of spiritual beings on a human journey. A story of a Delray treatment center and a story thats not really a story, but a reality.
Thanks for reading.
