I Wanna Get Better: Taking Steps Towards Recovery

After admitting that I needed help and checking myself inpatient, the next factor that really determined how quickly I progressed in my recovery was finding a therapist that I trusted could help me.  I mean really there are two parts to that statement.  Finding a therapist you trust.  And believing it is possible for you to be helped.  Both are equally important but I’ve actually had an easier time finding my soulmate than a fitting therapist.
