On April 29, 2019, Jason entered treatment at Monarch Health & Recovery. Unsure about his next steps in recovery, Jason began attending counseling and seeking medication assisted treatment. "I knew I had hit rock-bottom. I had no income, no where to go, and my mother was worried sick that I was never going to make it. I knew I had to get help right away."
With the help of Jason's counselor, case manager, prescribing physician, and mother, he continued to attend counseling and seek medication assisted treatment as advised. After a year of counseling, Jason went to the physician, wishing to taper off of Suboxone. "It wasn't easy, but I knew that I didn't want to be on Suboxone for the rest of my life. I also knew that I didn't want to attend counseling forever as my plans were to work and earn a living so that I could start to enjoy life." Jason, in accordance with the physician's orders, successfully tapered off of Suboxone and was lowered in his level of care. Two months later, Jason successfully completed the program, proudly becoming Monarch's first success story!
It has been over a year since Jason completed the program and he has maintained his abstinence since. "I am proud of the man I am today. The new me is out working, earning a paycheck, and living life to its fullest. The old me, the man seen high and living in an abandoned car, he's history. Now when people see me, they smile as they are proud of the person I have become. These are exciting times and I don't want to waste a minute of it. From here on, my life will consist of working, earning a paycheck, and catching up on all of the time that was lost when I was in active addiction."
