I’m doing very well, apart from a flu, although even that was a stimulating experience. I am now fit and 100% involved in the work process again since 2 weeks. But all this doesn’t fully occupy me, which is why I have other things on my track – like sports, additional hobbies, things to do etc… I also notice that I am drawn to people – I used to be a hermit, now I am much more aware and social.
The only thing that is still adjusting, and which will probably take some time, is my sleep. I always wake up in the half-way point, mostly sweaty, and I still don’t really dream, at least I can’t remember it. But after the long dry spell for my body, that’s all still in the process.
I am extremely grateful that I have been given the opportunity to participate in the ANR procedure, which convinced me right from the start. I have my life, my family, my body and so many other things back!
This patient was in the heroin program for several years, had family and a job and no connection to the drug scene. Unfortunately he consumed cocaine once at a party and couldn’t sleep for several nights afterwards. As an “old” prescription he used a small dose of heroin. The relapse was on track. He was then treated a second time, this time successfully.
