This program saved my life. I was addicted to heroin and cocaine. I also used every prescription narcotic I could get my hands on (opioids, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, etc.). In 2004 I was charged with 14 felony charges, including 2 armed robberies, in Middlesex and Norfolk counties. My father bailed me out with the understanding that I would find a place to go until I was sentenced. I called dozens of programs but was not accepted into any of them. I had no money, no assets, no insurance, no transportation, and was in serious legal trouble. Someone in jail told me about this program. I was confused by the name "Teen Challenge" because I was 20 years old, but the guy who told me about the program assured me it was for adults who were 18+. I was hesitant because I was an atheist and he said it was a faith-based program. With no other options available I called them and without hesitation, they accepted me into the program. It was such a relief to have somewhere to go. In August of 2004, I came into the program. They patiently brought me to every court date without fail and vehemently fought for me to stay out of jail. I was convicted of 9 felonies, but the judge saw the changes in me and eventually sentenced me to 3 years probation (running concurrently)! I have since achieved personal, spiritual, and economic success. I won't get into all the details here, but the program brought me back to life. This is so much more than a rehab!
Baldpate Hospital is a small, quaint facility in the woods of Georgetown, MA and is a hidden gem among rehabs and detoxes. It's unfortunate that insurance companies now dictate the length of stay at treatment facilities in Massachusetts. It's the same everywhere, not just t Baldpate. Our legislators need to instead of having some flunkie at an insurance company make medical decisions that affect the lives of people that need help longer than the five days that is common among treatment centers in Massachusetts.
To qualify let’s just say I’ve been to 80+ detoxes, 8 halfway house, countless sober houses, and 9 section 35s, prison, etc. So for a person like me walking into this 5 star facility I thought someone must have messed up and sent me to the wrong place. But once I got in, I soon realized this was the best place I have ever had the pleasure of being welcomed into. Everyone from the RSs, the team of counselors, the nurses, you can tell they are not just there for a paycheck, these people genuinely want to help and see you do well. I’ve been out for a few days now and got back on my vivitrol shot. THANK YOU RCA DANVERS FOR EVERYTHING!
