The therapy at Ambrosia has changed my opinion on therapy overall. Without their help, I would've never talked about the things that I was able to start working through while I was here. It's a supportive environment with the structure needed to heal and grow as a person. This experience helped me get in touch with who I am outside of being an addict.
Ambrosia changed my sister's life. That's not an exaggeration. She had been to several other facilities, with little, short-lived success, but Ambrosia was the only one that kept her sober for over a year now. She's a whole new person!
Everyone was so supportive. I was scared when I came in, but the therapists brought a lot out of me. All the exercises and classes on how to prevent relapse have been life changing. This never would have happened if I didn't come here!
I knew I made the right decision as soon as I settled in. Moving away from my home up north was uncomfortable, but Ambrosia made me feel welcome and cared about. I've never seen a treatment center where the counselors care as much as these ones do.
I constantly wonder if I'm doing enough, if I'm saying the right things. There's a weight of guilt and worry that I carry around, though I have a hard time letting go of the anger and resentment too. It's a struggle, but Ambrosia is there for me 24/7. They have been life-changing for both me and my sister’s recovery.
