So much more than a mere slogan…
Real People. Real Recovery.™ It’s not a catchy tagline created for us by our ad agency. We’re better than that. We’re real and realistic about recovery and we don’t promise an easy path to sobriety. Real recovery that’s lasting and meaningful takes hard work. The desire to self-destruct is upended. A real desire and drive for personal purpose develops. We know, because nearly every one of us at Granite Recovery Centers has walked in your shoes and is a real person enjoying a real recovery.
No addict has the same story. Most people share a common mental picture of what an addict looks like. Truth is, some addicts do lay in dark alleyways nursing a fix. Others, however, shoot up on lunch breaks at high-powered offices in $1200 suits. Some grew up dirt-poor, in drug-infested projects. Others came from picket-fenced yards and family Sunday dinners, straight A’s in school, and bright futures. Addicts are young. Addicts are old. They’re heroin addicts. Alcoholics. They’re meth addicts and benzo dependent. Some simply can’t get up without a drink. Other can’t sleep without an Oxy. Codone. Contin. Whatever it takes. There are addicts who started by accident. Some on purpose. They had sports injuries. And some just couldn’t cope with the pain of being sober anymore. They tried rehab. They tried rehab 3 times. Some tried meetings. Some tried nothing. Many, if not all, are lost, disenfranchised, lonely, and without hope.
And yet, we are all the same in many ways. We desire peace in our lives, the banishment of our personal demons, freedom from the disease of addiction, and a life filled with hope and purpose.
At Granite Recovery Centers, we believe that every addict can have what we have and is worthy of the gift of recovery that we’ve been given. We believe that every one of us is significant. And real. Born with promise and potential, and deserving of a life worth living.
We are all real people. You and us. As real as it gets. At Granite Recovery Centers, we’re living real recovery, and we want it for you as bad as you want it for yourself. That’s why we do what we do.
