( Testimonies by Recovering Addicts and Their Families )
“The thing that I have learnt and really value the most in my treatment here at Shafa is the consequential thinking. During my using period, I never bothered to think about the effects my actions would have on my loved ones. I put on stake all my relations; never bothering to see the causative effects of my addiction. But all that changed, once I came to Shafa. I worked on response system; unlearning many habits of my past, Now in recovery, I have started a new life; my relations with my family are bonding. I have gained confidence and self respect. Leading a sober life once seemed to be a daunting task to me, but not anymore. All thanks to Shafa.
“My husband had been drinking alcohol since 25 years. I had tried everything to stop him from drinking. Then in 2003 I got to know about Shafa. When I admitted him, I never believed he could recover. On the counselor’s suggestion, I started attending Family Association Meetings. This gave me insight into his treatment. It also made me optimistic about the future. . I am thankful to the counselors at Shafa for guiding me throughout and helping my family to survive in the bad times. Today life is very colorful and beautiful and I pray for all others like me to receive the holistic healing.
“I lost many valuable years of my life during addiction. I had a totally negative outlook towards life in my using days. It was with the help of Shafa that I learnt that every problem in life can be dealt without resorting to drugs. Now I have been living a positive life since last 2 years whereas previously it was difficult for me to stay
away from drugs even for 2 minutes. Whatever I had lost in life, friends, family, relationships, and happiness are all back in my life.
Today my family is glad to see me fulfilling all my responsibilities. Thank you Shafa for helping me in bringing this change in me from being negative to positive.
