The story of Alice in Wonderland has often been scrutinized as synonymous with underlying drug references and addiction. The tale of a young girl who lives a seemingly idyllic life on the surface is actually discontent. While searching for something more, she meets the ostensibly friendly white rabbit. Curiosity quickly grabs hold and she decides to follow, conceivably falling down the rabbit hole into a far-off world that, at first, seems full of wonder and whimsy discloses itself as shadowy and merciless. On her journey she meets many characters that encourage Alice down a dark path that includes taking numerous mind-altering substances along the way. That’s why we chose to use Alice in Wonderland a fairy tale of addiction as the theme for our facility.
This depiction of substance use is not unusual to the activities seen in addiction. Everyone’s story is different and the depth at which one falls down the proverbial rabbit hole is varied, but we all share a commonality, most all of us see a darkness in which we can’t escape on our own.
