Overcoming Addiction at New Season
Having a professional counselor to talk to has enabled me to get an objective view on my past behavior. I've learned that many of my past problems were self created & using pills was only a temporary fix. The biggest changes I've seen, are I don't let myself get involved in the drama of "helping" people with problems I'm not equipped to deal with. And I look for ways to help myself with problems without trying to find quick fixes like drugs. If you're to the point where you're done with withdrawal, the lies, the shame, the waiting for your dealer (or pharmacy), then talk to someone at a MAT Clinic today. I was very apprehensive about going. I'd heard all the judgements about people on Methadone, etc. But 19 years later I'm still on Methadone. I have a job, a great relationship with my family and I don't think about using at all. Those years are thankfully behind me. I get 27 take home bottles of my medication. And take it daily like any other medication. Be it blood pressure or insulin. I have No cravings, No withdrawal. And I am happy. You can be too. Give it a chance!

As soon as I started at this clinic, I felt like I was gaining a life back. My day no longer consists of worrying about money and finding pain medication and wondering if I'll be sick. I wake up and get my medication dose and feel good for 24 hours. I feel normal again. Before this clinic, I started to lose all hope. I have hope again, thanks to Naples Metro.

I was particularly moved by the attention received from the staff at New Season, and in particular by Jessica, the Treatment Services Coordinator (TSC). I have a good friend with an opioid addiction who finally got past the stigma barrier and decided to enter treatment. Even though others insisted that there was no way that a new patient could get in and out of their initial visit in time to get to work by 6:30 AM, Jessica proved them wrong. To make things brief, Jessica did what nobody else could: She got my friend processed and off to work on time on his first day of treatment. After meeting with him, she customized a treatment and counseling plan to maximize his comfort and work with his demanding schedule. Jessica, and by extension New Season, has really demonstrated that New Season supports the education and understanding of opioid addiction as a disease. Stigma has been a key barrier to patients entering treatment and staying in treatment, and I really think that Jessica helped ease my friend (who was really skeptical) into treatment. New Season aims to create a community that works together to create a supportive environment where patients can begin to feel whole again, and I really saw this. It is comforting to know that New Season’s Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) program, and the medications used today have been studied and proven to be highly successful in recovery. Indeed, their recovery programs use the latest science to create a comprehensive plan for patients that include MAT, counseling and medical services. The therapeutic programs are customized to the patient’s needs and services and are delivered in a way that respects the dignity, value and self-worth of every individual. I will forever be grateful for what New Season, and in particular Jessica, have done for my good friend.

Finding a medication and an appropriate dosage that has helped me feel and live normally again, combined with the support and encouragement I get from my counseling sessions, has saved my life. My relationships with my family have improved, I've reconnected with friends that I lost during active addiction, I've enrolled in a graduate program, and my professional life has soared.

Augusta Metro Treatment Center has changed my life and has saved my life. My counselor took the time to not only give me homework to do to have a better quality of life, but she took the time and talked with me, really listened to me and my story and I felt like my treatment plan was designed especially for me. Being able to talk with her and do this homework has helped me recover in ways that I can't even put into words. I truly believe in this program but you have to want a better life, you have to want to be better, you have to want it, period. Although I am a work in progress, I get better and better every single day, thanks to Augusta Metro.

The staff is wonderful. Without that staff you couldn't or even have a chance to succeed. The nurse Tiffany, Jessica, Miss faith, the counselor, everybody is just so wonderful and willing to help you out and how small or crazy or a silly your question sounds they have an answer for it and if they don't they'll figure it out but they'll walk you through it and you have a wonderful experience and you say why did I wait so long to actually look for help. And the nurse Tiffany she introduced me to everybody she could and everybody was there so I can not feel scared or overwhelmed she made it as comfortable for me as anybody would like walking you home letting you know it is okay and you're going to make it through. So if you're looking for a clinic that's going to help you succeed, this is a clinic to go to. There is no excuse out there because there are angels with open arms at this Clinic. Thank you Tiffany. Thank you Jessica. Thank you Miss faith. Just thank you Barbara. Thank you.

This is the first time I have been able to stay clean and not fall back into the never ending slavery of heroin use. Up until now the only clean time that I have had in the past decade was when I was in jail.

I'm a mom of three kids who had the perfect family, perfect life.. so was the story of my life had you asked the people around me. In secret I was battling an opiate addiction for over 10 years. When I no longer has access to prescriptions, I turned to dope. It was cheaper and easier to get. By then my days were consumed with getting my fix. Everything else became secondary. Not by choice, I had no choice, I was 100% addicted to the drug, and the process. If i didn't have it, I couldn't function, or think about anything other than how to get it. Life was about keeping from getting sick. That's all i was living for. This program has given me back what I didn't care I was missing.. enjoying precious time with my babies and a better quality of life. Don't let the line keep you from sticking it out.. it's worth the wait. (and you know you've waited a hell of a lot longer on your dealer!!)

My counselor Sonia has literally saved my life. She goes above and beyond what any person or counselor would do. She always has an open ear and is always there to listen when you need someone to talk to. No matter what she will make time for you and she will help you. Her qualities and being a counselor just go above and beyond anything. Like I said she has literally saved my life and she is such a great asset to this program and has been there for me through my journey of this program. She is on the ball with everything that she does with her job and takes it so very seriously. Having a wonderful counselor like Sonia to talk to just helped this become such a smoother transition for me. Come in and just do it. It's the best thing you could do for yourself and your family.

Participating in the treatment plan has been a blessing! Putting my goals in writing, discussing them and finding solutions to my issues with the help of my therapist along with the daily dose of methadone helped me recover. The treatment plan helped me see my recovery as a reality, something possible that I was able to do. I tried many recovery programs even rehab but nothing ever helped I used to get back to my self destructive habits. The minute I realized this program was really helping me I looked forward to each day hoping to get my life back which I DID.

Since being in recovery I have been able to put my energy where it belongs. I have been able to revive my business and put more time and effort into my family. I have also been able to find my calling and work towards my goals with a clear mind. I'm able to be a mother and a wife again without fear. My family supported my decision and continue to help me through this so I'm not going to let them or myself down.

Go. You deserve all the best life has to offer.... and after trying and failing so many times, I know this is right for me. The staff is very professional, caring and on top of it, they educate you on your addiction... all the why's, how's and what if's are answered. MAT is a very underutilized program, but so very productive. There needs to be more publicity and community involvement.

Once I realized how awesome everyone there was (staff & patients) I decided to give it my all & keep going. I am proud to say, I have been clean 3yrs now! Thanks for saving me from myself! Just take that "jump"! Its gonna be scary as hell, but so worth the "jump" in the end!
