Before coming to Fulshear Treatment to Transition, I attended an intensive residential treatment program in Utah. Towards the end of my stay there, my therapist at that program told me about my progress I was making and told me that I should consider what my next step should look like.
Honestly, I knew that I wanted to go to a young adult transition program, the problem was, which one. I started my research by looking to see which programs had the least amount of restrictions, the fastest average stay rate, and of course, the boys. I was looking for an easy way out. I wasn’t looking for a place where I was able to reach my highest heights and achieve my everlasting change. I remember coming across the Fulshear website after being recommended to come to this program by my old clinical director. The program didn’t mean anything to me, and I thought that this place wouldn’t be able to change me.
I remember the day when I realized this program won’t change me, because I am refusing to change. I’ve been in many treatment programs before and I knew that I didn’t want to keep flying under the radar. I needed to find a program that would benefit me, not a program that felt like a vacation. It definitely was a difficult decision to commit to Fulshear, just like any other program.
My anxiety and my struggles with my self-esteem left me in a huge pitfall prior to coming to Fulshear. I was worried about the change and being in a different environment, it’s the unknown piece that scares us all. Even though I had to take a huge risk and jump in, it is so worth it to me, now. The judgments I had on this program, really just mirrored myself, and I knew this would be the right fit for me.
