In 1996 I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and once I found alcohol I used it to, what I now know is called, “Self Medicate”. I had severe social anxiety and anxiety in general, I couldn’t leave my house without having a few shots or beers in me. I gave up on an incredible job because I couldn’t leave my house and I couldn’t last the entire day without drinking, my life was unmanageable.. My employees and family did not trust me, couldn’t rely on me, and all had told me how worried they were. So I made the decision and went to Shoreline. While at Shoreline I was taken out of my comfort-zone and all the staff took their time with me and helped me learn to function through my anxiety without self-medicating. My anxiety was through the roof and my Therapist, Case Manager, and all the other staff helped me every step of the way. I’ve never received so much love, understanding, and compassion from people that I had just met. I now have 5 months sober and have utilized every single tool that they have given me in order to get here. I still have anxiety but I’ve learned how to reach out to others when I need help, calm myself down, and do something positive to change my thought process. My family trusts me, my employees can depend on me, I work harder than I ever thought I could, and I’m continuing to go to meetings and regular therapy. Thank you, Shoreline.
