Tonight a therapist was filling in for my son's regular group and tonight he was sharing with group, smiling, laughing and joking about it. He actually stopped just to talk more with her when they were on break. She was really great with making him feel comfortable. Thank you!
Oh. My. God. This place has literally saved my life. After spiraling downward and hitting rock bottom, ABC’s staff of doctors and therapists worked with me to treat my symptoms and taught me the skills necessary to put my mental health on a far more sustainable path. It’s a lot of work and requires patience and determination, but they care for their patients, and are determined to see to it that everyone has the resources to get better and accomplish their goals.
ABC has helped save my life. They have given the support and tools I need to live my sober life. From my first visit I was kindly greeted by the sweet receptionist at front desk. Then I was treated by the doctor who was amazing; such a kind, caring doctor. The best part of my experience has been my IOP group therapy though. My group therapist rocks. She pushes you in a good, positive way, and helps build caring skills and life skills in my sober life. I have been clean since April 2016, thanks to the help and support of everyone here at ABC.
I have received nothing but the best care with everyone that I came into contact with at ABC. I am truly grateful for becoming a sober and healthy person again. Thank you guys so much for the awesome care. YOU TRULY DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
I believe IOP therapy helped me out a great deal. My counselor was an amazing listener and was quick to notice things, talk them out, and break it down. She spoke softly and wisely. She has done a wonderful job with all of her group members.
As I didn’t have a lot of interaction with the other staff, I can only speak to my therapist. Absolutely incredible in every way. She genuinely cares. There’s no facade. She encourages expression without forcing repression. She epitomizes what a great group counselor is and should strive to be. She will challenge you to be the best possible while remaining non-abrasive. Her ability to think in and outside the box extends the reach of those she can be of assistance to. I thank her from the bottom of my new-found heart.
ABC has been a great experience for me! With their help my life has changed drastically for the better. All the staff and doctors are kind and engaging. I am glad I chose ABC. I had a lot of options but this place just felt right.
I am happy with all aspects of my care at ABC! The staff is great! Suboxone has helped me with my addiction and with my pain issues.
I came to ABC in March of 2015 when I finally decided to get sober. I attended the IOP group for four weeks and graduated to Aftercare program. Coming to ABC groups and taking Suboxone truly gave me my life back. I am now the mother, daughter, and friend that I used to be and meant to be. I am now three-years sober from ALL substances. And I owe it to ABC.
ABC is great. The therapists are wonderful and the doctors are awesome. Since I have been coming to groups here, I have a better outlook on life. I am more positive. Thank you ABC doctors and therapists for taking the time to help improve my life!
Our therapist is very attentive with everyone. She has a way of getting everyone to open up and she let’s us know how well we are doing. She also has wonderful handouts that I try to apply every day.
My therapist is very kind and has provided us with great direction. She is very supportive to our issues and manages the group extremely well.
ABC has been such a wonderful thing for me. It’s teaching me valuable skills to be able to cope with life. It’s also a fabulous, supportive group of women I’ve come to care about. My therapist is truly one-of-a-kind. She can be very “matter of fact” and tell you like it is when you need it, or she can envelop you in a caring way and speak compassionately when you need it. She truly cares about the women in our group, and I personally appreciate her tremendously!
My therapist is wonderful! This is my first time at ABC. I didn’t even know there were coping skills I was missing that I could use to help me! I am learning a lot in this program. Thank you so much and God bless.
