Isaiah Richardson graduated from addiction treatment at The Recovery Village Cherry Hill at Cooper. 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 realized how sick I kept getting and ruining my family.”
Why did you (or your loved one) choose our treatment center?
“I loved the reviews, and it was recommended by my physician.”
What part of your treatment was the most helpful?
“The staff was great, very knowledgeable. Also, interacting with other patients and sharing one another’s stories. I met some life-long friends there.”
Who made the biggest difference in your recovery journey?
“Myself all around. Nah, but honestly, everyone who’s played a part in this journey, it will be impossible to single out one individual. I will have to say The Recovery Village played the biggest part.”
How has your life changed after getting treatment at our center?
“Being able to wake up every day without being sick, seeing my family and friends see my progress, not having to lie and hide my alcoholism, spending time with my son, giving me a structural routine and learning how to love myself again.”
How would you encourage someone else who needs treatment?
“I’d share my experience and guide them to the right path of recovery. It’s a beautiful experience.”
