Teen successfully completing drug rehab gives speech to teens
Chad, one of our teens we brought to Inspirations for Youth and Families through an intervention, gave a speech to our teens. He was leaving our teen drug and alcohol rehab after successfully working hard on his recovery.
Watch him in action on this YouTube video
Here is what Chad had to say to the teens at Inspirations for Youth and Families
You are not going home. I thought I was going home as soon as I got to Inspirations. I thought I am going to be the best kid and be out of here in 30 days. I am going to set the record for the fastest recovery.
I thought I am going to be the best kid and be out of here in 30 days. I am going to set the record for the fastest recovery.
Yeah 57 days later I am finally leaving. You are here for the time you are here. So even if you don’t want to be here and you didn’t think you have a problem. You are going to learn a lot about yourself while you are here at Inspirations. I can guarantee you that. So you might as well suck it up and go through with it 100 percent.
I am not going to sugar coat this rehab thing. It is going to be hard for you at times. But fortunately you have therapists that can help you through the tough times and ride the waves. You can’t do this recovery thing alone. Please remember to talk to your therapists when things are going rough. That is what they are there for. Some people think they can take on the world by themselves. It doesn’t work that way.
You will see that it is a lot easier if you open yourself up and be honest about yourself.
