Testimonial: HIV Positive and Recovering from Drug Addiction

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles greatly appreciates the many patient testimonials we receive.  In the interest of confidentiality and patient privacy, we go to great lengths before posting them for public viewing, so we couldn’t possibly show all of them.  Sometimes former patients will make their relationship with us public, which gives us a chance to show the positive results of the work we do.

The Daily Sundial of California State University, Northridge, posted an article about a former patient of Tarzana Treatment Centers.  While his name and picture are used the story, we will not.  The story is very informative about how he deals with being HIV positive, and his struggles with drug addiction.

In a follow-up interview with us, though, he expressed a desire to paint a clearer picture of his life in recovery and experience with Tarzana Treatment Centers.  His joy lies in recovery and he would like people to know that he does not dwell in the past, but instead uses his experiences to help others.

His hopeful optimism was evident when he spoke of the status of the relationship he has with his children.  While it is still in the rebuilding phase, and may be for some time, they are as open to moving forward and having dad back in their lives.  He shares daily conversations with them through text messages, and a phone call when possible, since they live out of state.

Future goals for this man in recovery include educating the HIV positive as well as non-positive population, and help to remove the stigma surrounding the disease.  He is currently studying Health Education at CSUN, and speaks for Positively Speaking.  He also works with the Tarzana Treatment Centers Community Advisory Board.

Staying active toward his goals proves to help in his own recovery from drug addiction.  He is an example of how positive behavior contributes to long-term recovery.  Due to the circumstances of his life, he is currently on disability and looks forward to the day that he can get back to work and get off of government assistance.  He is always looking forward.

While success in recovery greatly depends on an individual’s motivation, alcohol and drug treatment is often needed to encourage it or for that which is lacking.  For this patient, his motivation came from being tired of chasing a habit.  Knowing the problems his addiction had caused in his life led him to a desperate desire for help.  

Tarzana Treatment Centers was eager, as always, to make available everything he needed to get back on his feet and begin a new life.  “Tarzana Treatment Centers is amazing!” is all he could say to describe our part in his recovery.  He spoke highly of Charlon Davison, saying she was “perfect” when it came to leading him gently towards recovery and taking care of his new health needs.

We wish all of our former patients well, and continued recovery.  This gentleman is a fine example of how recovering individuals contribute positively to society, and are true assets.  Seeing former patients turn a downward spiraling life around makes all of our work worthwhile.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides a wide range of HIV services as part of our commitment to integrated behavioral healthcare in alcohol and drug treatment.  If you or a loved one are HIV positive and need help with alcoholism or drug addiction, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us here.
