Abraham Teniza graduated from addiction treatment at The Recovery Village Palmer Lake.  In a recent interview, he shared his recovery story, hoping to inspire others to seek the help they need: 

When did you realize you wanted to get treatment?

“When I was blacking out and waking up in the hospital too many times and causing myself embarrassment.” 

Why did you (or your loved one) choose our treatment center?

“I did my research and saw great reviews and comments about Palmer Lake.” 

What part of your treatment was the most helpful?

“Getting to express myself and letting out my emotions and being vulnerable and telling my story.” 

Who made the biggest difference in your recovery journey?

“Myself in being willing to change and becoming a better person than who I was before.” 

How has your life changed after getting treatment at our center?

“I changed a lot. I’m a better person, I’m happy, I started to join things again. And I’m bettering myself each day to become successful.” 

How would you encourage someone else who needs treatment?

“Don’t be scared; do this for you and only you and not for others. Commit to yourself that you want to become a better version of you.”
