Addiction Recovery Stories

Stories of recovery and success from Resilience Alumni

"Wow.  My son just described his time with [Discovery's Resilience] as one of the best experiences of his life.  Who would have thought???  He grew spiritually.  He broke out of his shell.  He became a leader and helped to encourage the other reluctant kids to accept and learn what they were trying to teach them.  Instead of fighting the program and just going through the motions, he fully immersed himself in everything that these caring counselors and staff were trying to instill in him.  Within a month, he seemed like a completely new person with respect, empathy, ambition...you name it. He evolved into this young man that I always knew was there but was hidden during his years of drug abuse.  He is now feeling healthy and clear headed. He is much more loving towards us. He is communicating honestly with us about everything. He is determined to stay sober and get everything he possibly can get out of life now.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

"This is an one of the best choices to turn to when you have a teen that has severe drug addiction and/or behavior issues and are at the end of your rope as a parent. My son is a drug addict and at 16 had taken everything from alcohol, weed, Xanax, wax, etc sometime several at the same time. He had been arrested many times for theft and drug dealing. He stayed here for over a month and came out a different person. He has been sober since he left here.  This place is amazing and so is the staff.  The entire time I never had to worry because they keep the teens safe (even from each other with the many security measures in place) and treat them well with a lot of healthy activity and therapy and very good home cooked meals.  For example, almost every morning they are taken to the gym. They do therapy all day long in different groups and also have school time. The teens are taken to different AA meeting every evening and have assigned chores and responsibilities daily. And of course there are always consequences if the teens do not adhere.  Also there is the time where you can talk to your teen on the phone and visiting times.  It is definitely a very intensive and serious environment for a teen with serious problems.  This place saved my teen and no only gave him the strength go back into the normal world sober but to go back to the normal world honestly and with confidence.  Thank you [Discovery's Resilience]."

"[Discovery's Resilience] is by far the very BEST treatment for adolescence.  If my daughter didn't go there, I believe with all my heart that she would have killed herself.  What they did for her and my family is tremendous.  Something happens there that is magical.  I slowly got my daughter back.  My daughter is sober.  She follows the 12 steps.  She has a full time job.  She is living on her own.  She has this amazing spirit and there is just something so special about her.  I would have none of that if it wasn't for Discovery.  I believe one of the most important things that Discovery does and it is so crucial...They care after treatment.  Their aftercare is....there is nothing like it.  I have this new BIG family now.  They are as committed to our family's recovery now as they were 3 years ago.  Not only did they save my beautiful daughter's life, they gave me one.  There is no other program out there like this one.  TRUST ME !!!!!  Do you want to know why?  Discovery is authentically there... always.  The beginning, The middle, and the journey after.  I am forever humbled and grateful for this program.'

 "I don't even know where to begin because this place helped my son save his life. Every staff member at Center for Discovery truly cares about every teen who walks through the door, willing or not willing to be there. We were treated with respect every step of the way. The change in my son's nihilist, my way or the highway attitude, lack of respect, and alcohol abuse has changed dramatically. 

We lost our son to substance abuse starting about two years ago and he almost died because of it. CFD helped him take his life back and for the first time in two years, he is hopeful for the future, and actually wants to help others in his situation. I can't say enough great things about CFD, but a special shout out goes to Robert Wilton, my son's therapist. Without him, I don't think my son would have achieved the level of success in treatment that he did. 

We will be eternally grateful for this program."
