This center is a residential drug and alcohol rehab offering 12 step recovery, smart recovery and dual diagnosis. They have a little something for everyone that comes for treatment. They have a good understanding that we are all different and have different needs that we need to work on and they take a great deal of pride in knowing that we all need help in different ways. This is by no means a state funded center and the level of service reflects i the care and attentiveness that you receive while you are here. We are able to participate in the areas of treatment that reflect what we are interested in and we are able to tailor the program how we see fit. I was greeted in the hallways when a staff member saw me and that meant a lot to me as I did not feel as though I was just a number and being taken care of like a revolving door to just get in and out. I really enjoyed the food and the classes I took and I felt like I gained a lot of insight into my addiction and clarity as to why I was using and how to move on from my past issues and overcome things that i thought I was never going to overcome in my life. I am clean and sober today and it is because of this center that I can say that today.
My defining moment of change happened after I just got tired of living the life that I was living. I got tired of being in the relationship that I was in. I got tired of moving from home to home and living on the streets.This is actually my second time getting clean. I did everything wrong the first time. This time, I used everything that I learned the first time around. I now do what I need to do. I just got so tired of living a drug life.My first time in rehab was back in 2008 and I’m actually one of those people who loved rehab. I knew that if I ever wanted to try and get clean again, I would go back to this place. Once I finally decided that I was just so tired of it, I knew exactly what to do. I went right back to it. I pretty much just woke up one morning and said, “I’m done with this and I want to go back to rehab. and i did that day i made the call and they came and got me and everything.this time i listened i applied every thing i was learning there to my recovery and i took it more serious this time. i went to groups i saw a counselor i participated in every thing the program had to offer. they taught me how to cope with life out side of rehab so i did not go back to that life and i believe that is why i am successful today.”My life is so much different now. I have my family back in my life. I have my kids back in my life and a lot of good things have been happening in every part of my life. I can hold a job down now. I have great friends in recovery, I don’t have to worry about anybody using me for anything. I love my life now that I’m clean. i have been clean since and i am, not looking back i am truly moving on to better things and i am very proud of myself and i am so thankful for these guys they saved my life and saved me from myself.
i gave up drugs and alcohol for good for my health my well being and my family. drugs have been a curse that has haunted my family for years. i of course said i would never do them but when your a curious careless teenager those thoughts change. I gave up every thing to do drugs for a long time and shamefully even sold my body when i had to.i felt so low and desperate i thought at one point i did not care if i overdosed i was not worth living any way.i really can not explain why i felt what i did but one day it was like a light bulb went off and i thought what are you doing this is not the life for you.i immediately got help while i was in that mode.i left and drove myself to treatment that very day.being here opened my eyes to a whole new world a better life full of hope and love and encouragement.i completed my program here after a few months and decided to go back to school.My life is so much better now and although I still am faced with trials from time to time, I have been given the tools to work through any situation without taking a drink or drug. I believe that this disease progresses whether I am actively using or not. I believe that my continued recovery is based on being spiritually fit. Every day I start with a prayer of gratitude. I read, meditate and reach out to others. If I find myself off-center during the day, it only takes a few minutes to say a prayer and gain my footing. this is me today better stronger and open to the new world that faces me. thank you so much to the people who dedicate themselves to caring for people like me.
Choices Recovery is a well structured recovery center with a very knowledgeable staff. SMART recovery class helped me to understand my addiction and Choices counseling staff helped and encouraged family therapy sessions which helped me better relationships in my life. Security staff as well as client services staff was always extremely helpful with any client needs 24/7. I would recommend this treatment facility to any family/friends/loved ones in need of help.
This place saved my life. The staff is great and compassionate. They helped me every step of the way. Many activities to keep the clients busy during the program. Clean facility and the food is great.
i am 50 years old and i have spent the last 20 years of my life as an alcoholic. i have missed out on so much through out my kids lives its ridiculous. when i look at myself i do not recognize me sometimes my eyes are yellow and my skin does not look normal its terrible. i am not trusted to take care of my grand children because last time they were in my care i passed out and one of them got hurt pretty bad. i felt terrible. i realized i am not going to get any younger and it was too late to make things right with my children but i sure could make it right with my grand kids so i decided to go to treatment. my kids agreed that if i got help i could be with my grand children any time i wanted and that was motivation in itself to me i was ready definitely ready. i headed off to the treatment center the same day i called and i arrived at a beautiful facility. i was welcomed by the wonderful staff at choices recovery. i felt comfortable instantly and i knew this was going to be good for me. i completed the program and i am now 6 moths clean and sober and i have never felt so good in my life. i am in my grand kids lives a hundred percent i have a better relationship with my children i am finally free and living how i want to thanks to the staff and doctors at choices. i would not change my experience for any thing i love who i am today.
My mom found Choices Recovery for me this last time I relapsed. I’ve been using pain pills for the last 5 years and while I’ve tried plenty of times to stop, getting completely off them and staying off them seemed an impossible task. I’ve been to 2 other rehabs and tried countless times to quit by myself but I’ve never managed to stay clean for month than a month or two. It sucks, I never wanted to be this way and not being in control of my body and my life was depressing to say the least. Choices was different for me. Mostly, it was the staff that made such a difference for me. They’re amazing people, dedicated to helping others. I felt comfortable with the staff there. They made me feel like getting sober was something I could do and that I could stay that way when I left and when home. For the first time I felt like there were people who I could talk to about my issues. Talking to them wasn’t awkward or weird. They understood me and what I was going through and were always there for me when I needed it. Having a place where I felt safe and comfortable with people who actually understood me made such a difference. The other clients who were at Choices with me all seemed to feel the same way. Most of us were there because we wanted to get better. There wasn’t anyone there, at least when I was, who was court ordered to be there or only there because their parents made them go. Which made it so that all of us going through our programs were supportive of the others. I made some great friends there and I’m still in touch with all of them. Since coming home we’ve helped each other stay on track and positive. Which helped a lot since I didn’t have many friends from before I started using and I certainly couldn’t hang out with anyone I had gotten high with. I went to Choices 7 months ago. I’ve been back home for 5 months now and I’m surprised sometimes how well I’ve been doing. My relationship with my mom has improved. She’s starting to truly trust me again and it’s pretty awesome to be able to go out to lunch with her and know that she’s not wondering if I’m high or not. I started a new job soon after getting home and it’s also been going good. I’ve not missed a day of work since starting and last week I got a raise and a promotion. I can’t begin to tell you how amazing that is for me. I went from not being able to hold a job to having one that I like and that I’ve done well at. For the last 5 years my life has been a disaster. I just kept messing it up over and over again and it seemed like every time I tried to get better it only got worse. I have a good life again and I’m working on making it even better. I’m so happy that I went to Choices. I know that I wouldn’t have made it as far as I’ve come without the place.
I started using heroin 4 years ago. I’ve been to 5 different rehabs in that time. It would have been great if the first time I went to rehab worked for me and I stayed clean. That didn’t happen though and each time I relapsed it become harder and harder on my family to support me. I went to my first rehab when I was 17. It was a 6-month program and when I completed that program I honestly thought I’d be able to stay sober. I did everything I was supposed to do when I got home but the desire to use hadn’t gone away and at some point I just thought “screw it” and relapsed. For me, it was almost impossibly hard to stay clean when I wanted to get high. I’m sure other people are stronger than that and actually manage to stay sober when all they want to do is use. I wasn’t able to though. It was hard telling my parents that I relapsed because I wanted to get high. Telling them that I wanted to stay clean but also wanted to get high didn’t make any sense to them. They couldn’t understand it and I couldn’t explain what was happening in a way that they would be able to understand. Throughout the years I spent using they continued to help me get into rehab when I asked for help but as I relapsed after each program they stopped holding out any amount of hope that I’d have a future without drugs. I went to Choices last year and it was the best program I’ve ever been to. The people working there are incredible. Extremely kind and caring and they understood what I was going through in a way I hadn’t experience before. Going through the program there changed my life. Somewhere during my program the desire to use went away and the desire to life a full and complete life become truly important to me. I learned so much during my program at Choices and when I got home I was actually able to use what I’d learned to stay sober. Since going to Choices last year I’ve stayed sober. I’ve now been sober for 13 months and it’s amazing how easy it is for me. Every other program I’ve been to, trying to stay sober after was this crazy hard, almost impossible thing to do. Going to Choices made staying sober something I was able to do without a lot of hardship. Don’t get me wrong, going there wasn’t this magical experience where when I left I was just able to stay clean. I worked my butt off there doing my program and I still work hard at my sobriety. The difference is that it’s doable for me and I want to do the work involved with keeping myself clean. Since graduating from Choices and coming home my life has been so much better. My parents and I had a lot of problems when I was using. Obviously. Things are going so much better now. We’re communicating again. Slowly but surely I’m earning their trust back. I don’t know where I’d be if I hadn’t gone to Choices but, wherever it was wouldn’t have been good. It didn’t just save my life, going to Choices gave me a life that was worth living again.
Drinking has always been my downfall. it has taken every thing from me my family my friends my health. i have lost so many jobs due to drinking. my last time drinking i was so drunk i fell in my bathroom and hit my head on the sink. i almost killed myself i woke up in the hospital and that day i decided to reach out for help. a lovely lady gave me the number to this place and i left the next day when i was released for treatment. i did amazing in treatment i went in looking sick and i came out bigger and better. i gained my healthy weight back i worked out every day they have an awesome gym here.it helped ease my mind from the thought of drinking. i am happy i made the choice to get help here it was the best decision of my life. Life is precious; it’s a journey and a battle. I went through a lot and came out the other side a better man. It was not easy admitting I was imperfect and no one ever wants to feel “less than”. If you or someone you know is struggling, speak up and ask for help.Today, my life is truly amazing, I have real friends, an amazing girlfriend and a loving family back in my life.I was able to start my own business that gives back to families that don’t know where to turn to help someone that is struggling with addiction. I am able to enjoy the things in life that matter like relationships, happiness, love and joy. I have gotten back into sports, golf and other hobbies that I once loved.Don’t be afraid! Getting clean and sober is the best decision you will ever make! Reach out for help.
i attempted treatment times before this and it worked for a while. it was always temporary though its like it called me back in to the darkness. after being sober a few months one time I did well for a while but then I got bored and went to a bar and I actually met people from my home town then the insanity began again—drinking, drugs and more. I swore to myself that I would never stick a needle in my arm but I did speed, cocaine, and almost heroin. I stayed up for days doing speed and could not come down. it was ridiculous the things i was doing to my body. i was unhappy depressed and very thin and frail. during my drug use i went from weighing 267 to 121 it was scary really my family did not even recognize me. it was not until i ended up in a strangers home one day naked and went to leave and he paid me that i realized just how messed up my life was. i was so ashamed. i went on a binge that week and at the end i said that is it for me i will not die this way. i called choices recovery and they got me in the next day. it was so simple they took care of everything for me. during my stay i had time to get in touch with the real reasons i had these issues and the person i wanted to become. i got my butt in the gym and i started gaining my weight back by the time i left i think i weighed 147 and i looked so good. i am proud of the woman i am today i am in school and i am becoming some one and it is all thanks to choices i would recommend this place to every one.
I came here to choices recovery to get help after being an alcoholic for the last 20 years. i got 2 dui's already and i got in an accident about 7 months ago where i almost killed someone i could have caused some serious harm to myself or that person.it was that day i decided to go and get help. when i came here i was skeptical at first scared i did not know what to expect. they assured me they would help me every step of the way and they did. when was going through with drawl there was always someone they to comfort me to help me when i was getting sick. and after i started feeling a little better i got to enjoy some of the wonderful things tha facility had to offer. i pretty much stayed in the gym i worked out they helped me with my diet and every thing. i was pretty heavy when i went in and when i left i was 30 pounds lighter and it was a wonderful feeling. when i went home my family barely recognized me it was so cool. i also met a great support system of friends while i was there that i still communicate with today. without them i probably would not have been so strong. today i am mending broken relationships with my family and i am regaining my kids trust so i can see my grand kids more often then i could before.sobriety actually rocks way more than being dependent on any thing. if you are searching for a place to gain your life back i definitely recommend this place. i am the person i am today because of choices recovery and i would not have it any other way.
I started partying a lot once I graduated from High school. I moved out of my parents’ house and into an apartment with a roommate. My first taste of freedom being on my own. At first I only partied when my friends did. But I soon found myself drinking and doing drugs more and more. Until one day I looked in the mirror and realized I was an alcoholic. I didn’t care that I was an alcoholic. I had come to terms with the fact that this would kill me. I didn’t care. This is the power of addiction.I remember bits and pieces of that final night that I drank. I was afraid to lose my life. I was an empty shell of the person I used to be. I was emotionally and spiritually bankrupt. My addiction had beaten me down. I was afraid that this time I might actually succeed in taking my own life. That night I decided to stop drinking. i asked for my dads help and that is when he found this place and i left the next day to come to treatment. i discovered my love for painting here in the art classes they offer. because of my skills i am now a very well known artist in my area and i could not be more proud of myself. addiction was hard but coming here ultimately led me to my calling and i am very successful. i made my family proud as well. thank you choices recovery for showing me the way i finally see the light in my life.
I cannot tell you how much better my life has become since going to Choices. Doing the program has changed so much for me. Since I started using I’ve wanted to get sober but nothing I did, no programs I went to seemed to help me with that. Instead, I’d just stay clean for the time I was in whichever rehab I was in at the time and relapse almost as soon as I left. It was hard on everyone, most especially my parents. While I was going through my program at Choices I learned how to better communicate with my parents. How to handle disagreements and how to not let those disagreements give me an excuse to use. The staff working at Choices are great. All of them are so nice and always willing to help. You can tell when you work with them how much they care about each client that comes in. I went to Choices 4 months ago and graduated from the program 3 months ago. Since being home, I’ve done really well. My relationship with my parents is better than ever. I’m so much happier than I’ve ever been. I love that I’m clean and sober and can actually get back to living my life.
Before I got sober, I was addicted to opiates for ten years. It completely controlled every aspect of my life. I had no relationships, money or assets. From the minute I woke up each day, all of my desire and energy went towards feeding my addiction. My whole life was upside down for such a long time that I forgot what normal really was and what it was like to have relationships with others or how to get from point A to point B because I had sold my care for drugs. That was my whole life was. Anyone that came into my life would not last long because of the chaos and hell that surrounded me. I was completely numb to everything because of the bad things that were created by long term use and continuing to neglect my health and the legal problems that I created the longer I used. Eventually it would all come crashing down.Any length of sobriety I had within those ten years would be because I was confined to a program and once I came out I would just make the same mistakes again.It wasn’t until I made the initiative and real decision to set myself away and make the commitment to get sober and making sacrifices of not being with my girlfriend or things I was comfortable with. During those three months my value system changed. i got myself into a treatment program and i worked my butt off getting clean every single day. All of sudden I started caring about things differently. I started putting others like my family and my girlfriend before my own selfish desires. After that my life started to turn around. The things that came back to me were so much different than what they were before.i had a whole new outlook after coming to treatment its like seeing the world for the first time again. it was beautiful honestly. i had my moments i felt like throwing in the towel but honestly these guys here they will not let you. they gave me encouragement every single day to stay clean and fight the fight. i could not let my addiction take over my life any more and i did not want that label for myself.after leaving and graduating from the program here i Now I have a steady income, my relationships are healthy, and life is good. It is not way up one day and way down the next. Life is just steady. That is the best place that I can be. If something bad or unexpected does happen, today I am prepared for it. i take every challenge for what it is and take care of it the way i need to. i am much more matured now and i really feel accomplished in my life. Stability gives me the option in life to care about what really matters. For me, my value system changed the day I went into recovery and made the sacrifice to get it right. i am forever thankful for the team here who made it all possible for me i could not have done any of this alone. they were truly my backbone through every thing and they never let me fall. My goal is to become a Peer Support specialist. Learn how to help others and deliver the message of recovery. I am also furthering my own education in graphic design currently on scholarship that I would not have been able to secure without the blessings of recovery.so thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this life possible for me i hope someone out there finds this message inspirational and just maybe they can save your life as well take care of yourself and stay blessed.
When i arrived to Choices I did not know what to expect. But i was welcomed by a great staff and made my intake easy and comfortable. I have been here for over 30 days and it feels like a second home. The classes are full of information and also the staff makes it a point to make the days go by fast. i am leaving Friday and am going to miss my second family. I would recommend this facility to everyone.
Do you need to get help for a drug or an alcohol addiction? Do you know someone who needs to get help for a drug or an alcohol addiction? Then I strongly encourage you to look into Choices Recovery. We took our son Tim to Choices Recovery when he was suffering with addiction and we did not know what else to do with him. He was on a huge bender and it seemed like he would likely die from his habit. Overall we were very happy to have been able to help him and we were very happy that he was able to get the assistance that he got. In all honesty, it seemed like getting free from an addiction habit was going to take a lot more work than it did. And at first, it was hard for Tim, and it was hard for all of us as a result too. Tim seemed to not know what to do and he seemed to be constantly running into huge problems and just getting worse and worse with his problems. We sort of felt like this might be the end for him before we got him into Choices Recovery, and we were blessed by god that we were able to find this program for Tim when we did. I am not so certain that he would be with us today had it not been for that fact. Really he was going down a very bad path and there is no doubting that fact. When it came to triumphing over addiction, Choices Recovery made all the difference for Tim. Here was a rehab center that was essentially able to take him in and show him that he was not lost and that there were answers to even the most difficult of addiction nightmares. No other group had done that. My hat is off to Choices Recovery and I would strongly recommend them for these reasons and for more too.
My son recently graduated from Choices Recovery. I wanted to go over a few things regarding Choices because I was very happy with the services that he got there and I feel like he is a better man because he went there. The staff. This was our first experience with a drug and alcohol rehab center, but the fact remained that I had heard some concerning stories about under-educated and unexperienced staff at rehabs, so I went into Choices Recovery with some concerns in mind. However, I found out very quickly that this rehab center was an incredibly caring and compassionate place and they really did have my best interests at heart. Now, I still feel that way, possibly even more so, because Brad is doing incredibly well as he has graduated the program and moved on to his life once again. The program. Of course this would not be a thorough review if I did not say something about the program at Choices Recovery. The program was truly incredible. They offered so many different types of therapies and modalities and different kinds of treatment options. They used a caring and delicate mindset and they insisted that people who were going there try a little bit of everything as far as getting free and clear from addiction went. The program operated off of about twenty-four different recovery methodologies, and it used these techniques to help people find a way to freedom from addiction once and for all and for good. The location/facility. The location and facility of The location/facility was also very good. Talk about a qualified location! Good building and good premises in a good part of town and a quiet, peaceful area too. All around a good place and a pleasant environment for all of us to take part in. For my son Brad, going here was very comfortable and very pleasant for him, and we were thrilled with that fact. We were glad that he was able to get the opportunity to get help and we were glad that he could be at such a peaceful location. The length of time of the program. Now, even with little to no experience in addiction rehabilitation, I know that Choices Recovery is without a doubt one of the best if not the best when it comes to length of time, and this is for the sole reason that they do what they call a results-based, evidence-based length of time in their recovery services. This is to say that they offer an ongoing treatment approach that allows for people to learn more about the services involved, and to stay on essentially as long as they needed to to ensure freedom from an addiction habit. That was incredible. Overall, I am very happy with the services that our Brad got at Choices Recovery. Overall this was a very pleasant program and rehab center that offered good services and kind care for all who struggled with a habit. We are thrilled that we got a chance to participate! I could go on forever about how great this program was, but I will leave it at the fact that they helped our boy go free from addiction for life. If you are seeking help for yourself or a loved one struggling with an addiction, then I strongly recommend Choices Recovery. Choices Recovery is a bastion of sanity and stability and a well thought out and well-focused recovery methodology. They use caring and conscious techniques that are focused on helping the person, not just on making a paycheck. That was very unique I felt. This rehab center strives to offer excellence and a good recovery modality for all who seek treatment there. My hat is off to them, and I am grateful our Brad was able to go there and get help there. You may or may not know what it is like to be a parent with an addicted child, but just knowing that Brad is okay makes all the difference for me and I absolutely have Choices Recovery to thank for that. This center gave me my boy back and I will always be grateful.
What an amazing program! They helped me so much and so many others. A lot of the staff are in recovery so they know exactly what you are going through. The Clinical Director Francesca helped me so much and is the most compassionate counselor I’ve ever met. Chef Jason puts out 5 Star meals everyday. If you need help this is a great place
