Nothing Changed…But Me: Real Recovery Stories 48 Hours After Leaving Treatment

Nothing Changed…But Me chronicles the journey of 33 alumni from Sierra Tucson, one of the world’s most renowned treatment centers located in Tucson, Arizona. These individuals and courageous change-seekers spent 30-45 transformative days in the heart of the soul comforting desert, in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains.

Their stories as to what landed them there are all unique. But what bonds them is their realization, the very real fear of leaving the bubble of safety where their transformations began. Their challenges, struggles, and courage during their first 48 hours after leaving treatment are shared in this book. How does one venture forward with the stark realization that nothing in their world changed, except themselves?  These are their stories during those first 48 hours.

Colossal metamorphism isn’t for the faint of heart. This book is for anyone who has ever encountered recovery, or who has supported a loved one in the midst of a life change. It takes raw honesty, strength, and a sometimes never-before harnessed grit to face life anew.

“Perhaps this sounds trite or idealistic; however, after the total and complete hell I’ve been through, if I’m alive and sober, it is so truly miraculous that I want others to know that even the most utterly hopeless individuals have hope.” –Elizabeth G.

The time spent at Sierra Tucson was the true beginning of my journey. Not only did I overcome my addictions, but I began to focus on the root causes that created my compulsions. I understand myself so much better now.
