Alumni Testimonials
  • Hello my name is John, I'm an addict. I want to tell you a little bit about how my new life began. My life was like most it was so unbearable and unmanageable I didn't care if I lived or died. I was living in a hell that I thought there was no way out until I asked God to show me a way out or not let me live any longer. I destroyed everything in my path until I was looking up a magic pill and found JUST BELIEVE RECOVERY's phone number. When I called they said they would call me back. I really didn't think it would work anyway and didn't care. I kept getting these 800 number calls I just thought it was bill collectors and didn't answer. One day a 252 number came up and I actually thought it was the drug dealer and answered it. Little did I know it would be my little guardian angel a Taylor from Just Believe and my journey had begun. As I went through detox I still didn't believe this would work for me. I spent 8 days in Royal Detox. When transferred to Just Believe I wanted to leave that day but no one was listening to me no one seemed to care. Little did I know I was still being a spoiled brat. As I was sitting in the lobby of the center scared to death a therapist walked up to me and asked who I belong too? I said I don't have a clue and she took me under her wing and guided me through the hardest days of my life. That lady my friends, was Ms Maria, whom I spent a lot of time with for the next month. When I returned home I remembered the tools that were given to me and how I needed a meeting in 32 hours of returning home. So on Valentine's Day I took my wife to a meeting and was I surprised with the love and friendship from this amazing group of people. Then as days went by I constantly went to every meeting I could, meeting people that would become a big influence in my recovery. One of the hardest things I had to face in this year was losing my first sponsor to cancer. He instilled in me a lot of knowledge and discipline one of the biggest one was keeping your commitment. I went forward and started a NA meeting and volunteering at IOP PROGRAM speaking at churches and AA meetings. It's so amazing how God has brought me and my wife together as a team. To help the ones that was just like us, we can now give back. You have to give it away to keep it. I want to thank JUST BELIEVE and Taylor Hart and Maria Murphy for working with me and giving me all the tools I needed for this new adventure. A special thanks to my buddy Jason he was always there for me.
    John J. Alumni of 01/2015
  • I was literally hand plucked by a Just Believe Alumni (sister) out of a crack motel in Paterson, NJ and I couldn’t stop injecting heroin or smoking crack. The support (community, staff, alumni, etc.) created an environment of reciprocal support while I learned how to not only abstain from drugs use but learn to live content with my life through self-esteem, integrity and spiritual philanthropy. Today, I am a work in progress and through practice continued, daily maintenance on my recovery which included regular attendance and participation of a 12 step program coupled with participation in a spiritual practices. Through all this I have options and a gifted, blessed life.

  • I reached out to a friend who worked for the facility to get here. When I came here I was emotionally, spiritually and mentally broken. Through the work of the clinical staff we recognized problems I didn’t even know I had. I learned how to live my life without using by working on myself for once. I am doing everything that was suggested and taught to me. I got a sponsor, homegroup, a service commitment in my homegroup and I am actively working the 12 steps of NA. This place has given me my life back. I live a live beyond my wildest dreams and love my self today.

  • All the staff here truly care and want you to stay clean. Not everyone agrees with their methods but I promise you they all have your Best intentions at heart. Crack brought me to my knees and disappointing my family brought me to Florida/ Just Believe. I knew for a fact that Family or as my people say (OHANA) here at Just Believe would treat me with the love and care I needed. I thank Therapist Amy, Aunty Marilyn, Therapist Michele, Admissions Manager Taylor, Alumni Coordinator Corie and all the techs that kept it real and made my time here smooth, doing thinks they really didn’t need to. I will take all the things I learned and use them in my day to day life from the suggestions, the numbers I got and good supportive conversations I had. There is so much I could write but I truly thank Just Believe from the bottom of my heart. Aloha A Hui Hou. Mahalo Nui Loa. Thank you so much.

  • Amazing program with an amazingly staff. Anything I needed was met with urgency and respect. Just believe Recovery center has a loving staff from the clinical director down to the cook. I’m so lucky to have had the opportunity of someone believing in me!

  • I started using at the age of 14 but it wasn’t much of a problem till I was 17. I checked in to a treatment at the age of 18. I got out and stayed dry for 7 months. Then picked back up and ran in and out of treatment till I came down here at the age of 21. My drug of choice was opiates. Just Believe is by far the best treatment center I have been to. I went through their detox, PHP, transitional living IOP. The staff is great and will work with you every step of the way. They showed me more about the program than any place I had been before. Returning home, I’m going to continue to work the steps, go to meetings, and work with a sponsor. If you or a loved one is needing help, then Just Believe is the place I would recommend.

  • I arrived at Just Believe September 2014 and was amazed at the support and love they have to offer. Through trial and error I unfortunately had to return in February and was in disbelief when they were going to give me a second chance. The staff at Just Believe will do everything in their power to help you succeed. I followed all their suggestions and I am still clean today because of them. Just Believe literally saved my life. It was scary to come to Florida on my own not knowing anyone, but at Just Believe they made me feel a part of. Their clinical staff gets to the underlying causes of your disease and helps you work on understanding them. I moved into their transitional living after I finished my time at their PHP. They showed me how to be responsible and how to be a normal human being. Shortly after my stay I got a sponsor, home group and started to work my steps. Just Believe welcomed me. Made me a part of their family and keep me accountable every day. The only way I can repay Just Believe for what they have done for me is to stay clean. Before I came down here I literally had nothing. I lost my job, vehicle and destroyed so many lives of others. Through Just Believe I realized that I could have those things back. I never thought I would be where I'm at today and it's all because of the things that Just Believe has taught me. Today I have a great relationship with my family, a great job and a place to call my own. After I left Just Believe I was happy to be considered alumni and grateful to be a part of something bigger then myself. To give back what was so freely given to me. Thank you Just Believe for helping me become the young man I am today.

  • Wife of Alumni Today I sit here in full amazement with the recovery my family has got over the last year. We went through throwing our hands up, going to lawyers for a divorce, to now not being able to have one minute away from my soulmate. What a roller coaster ride this monster tried to give me and my family and he did but just for a short time 10 years. Now that monster is arrested "just for TODAY". I never imagined that my life nor my family's life would be this way, it just wasn't possible but with the help of God and Taylor (just believe admissions manager) constantly calling after that first call from John, it happen!!!! We have had lots of tears of joy and moments that seemed impossible but anything is possible with God. This monster had me so crazy that I had so much anger and bitterness and hate in me that I never ever wanted to smile or to laugh, but with the help of a young man at Just Believe telling me about a group called Al-anon for then I was taught that I'm not in control. My thoughts on this: These people just don't know cause there isn't anything wrong with me, little did I know yes there was. I was as messed up as my husband. Just like my husband today I am freed from that monster but for only today. I take one day at a time not trying to look into the future or the ‘what ifs.’ Enjoying each clean day I have with my family and it's better than winning any lottery or having all the money in the world. I have recently started an Al-anon meeting and it's really growing it's so amazing how you see someone change right before your own eyes. I want to thank JUST BELIEVE RECOVERY AND ROYAL DETOX for giving my husband the tools to start a brand new clean life my heart and soul will be indebted to you and your staff. To Maria, you were the momma bear that kept us straight and always giving me strength to move forward. Thanks for everything a BIG THANKS TO ALCOHOL ANONYMOUS without this program life would truly be different!!!!!! Jan. 21, 2016

  • I came into Just Believe broken. I felt as if I couldn’t go on in this life, and didn't know how to live. I chose the program without any prior knowledge of it, I just knew I needed help. Upon arrival, everyone was kind and understanding, which aided in easing my nerves. The staff was genuine, and they gave me strength on days I felt I had none. Without the people in this program, it would be like every other treatment center. I was given the tools to live a life of recovery and was overtaken by a sense of pure happiness. I learned so much about myself and grew spiritually. Just Believe changed my life, and for that I am eternally grateful.
