From the Desk of our CEO: New Year's Challenge

As an avid sailor for more than 30 years, I have learned to set sail knowing there are new challenges and discoveries that lie ahead. No sailing trip is like the last, and although I plan my route, I leave expecting the unexpected. I’ve spoken with many patients and alumni at The Treatment Center regarding how they feel about the holiday season, and I have learned that for them, it is a lot like setting sail.

For those in recovery and their family members, there will be new obstacles to overcome as well as lessons to be learned this new year, with many of them being unexpected. While this time of year can present its difficulties, it also presents many opportunities to reflect positively on the path that led to this new life in recovery, and to embrace the renewed hope for the future.

The New Year’s Challenge

Many view the New Year as a time to promise themselves to become better in some way, but the truth is, those in recovery have already begun navigating their way to a better life. My New Year’s challenge to all of you is to embrace your journey by learning to expect the unexpected, welcoming each new discovery that lies ahead, and being grateful that this year’s challenges can be overcome, if you take them one day at a time.

On behalf of all of us at The Treatment Center, thank you for allowing us to become part of your lives. We are grateful for the opportunity to work in an industry where we see the hope restored to people’s lives day after day. I wish you all a wonderful and safe holiday season.

So, will you sail along with me and take the New Year’s challenge?

Best Wishes,

Bill Russell, CEO

    I have a dear friend who has been taking heroin. She went off it cold turkey. Withdrawals were bad. She is also on probation for addiction. I have two questions:
    1) I was reading that in the state of Kentucky if an addict goes on suboxone treatment they could go back to jail. My question is: does that go for all States especially New York or is that for just some states that don’t believe in the suboxone treatment? And is New York one of those states that does or does not believe in suboxone treatment for an addict on probation?
    2) My good friend is in an outpatient rehab @present. What would be the next step? Would it be to find a local doctor that can prescribe suboxone or would the facility be able to prescribe without a doctor? For some reason my good friend is afraid to ask due to the fact she doesn’t want to go back to jail if it’s a treatment that could send her back. Thus The questions.
