Mountain View was an amazing experience and itâ€™s helped me get my life back in more ways than one. The staff were excellent and the counselorâ€™s are one of a kind, they also helped me rekindle my relationship with my higher power who I choose to believe as Jesus Christ. Iâ€™d like to send a special thanks out to Mrs Ashley, Mrs Lisa and my man Jared.Tristan A.
Mountainview is a phenomenal facility with a passionate and well informed staff. You will find nothing but extremely professional and accredited physicians, nurses, and therapists ready and willing to offer their services and resources in order to set you up for recovery!Olivia C.
I would suggest this treatment center to any addict who is trying to start to build their foundation. The staff is amazing and they truly care and want to help in any way they can. The house is beautiful and there is plenty of land to roam around. I love the scenary and serenity there. Iâ€™m so grateful I had the experience I did there, they helped set me up for success.Jessica S.
Hands down the best facility Iâ€™ve attended. Iâ€™ve never been anywhere where they focus on individual care as much as Mountain View has for me. Theyâ€™re still in contact with me almost 5 times a week to see how I am and what Iâ€™m doing. If you want to be serious about your recovery this is the place to go! Much loveZachery M.
Mountainview Recovery Center changed my life. Ive been to countless other facilities in south Florida but something was missing. I had the inability to get honest with myself and my peers. Upon arrival at the housing, the BHT on staff (Mikey) made me feel extremely welcome and made sure i had everything i needed to begin my journey at Mountainview, and throughout my stay made me feel like i was at home. He really goes above and beyond of what is expected of him to do by his supervisor. Hes the best! When i arrived at the clinical building the next day the therapist on staff (Jake) made me feel very comfortable at the facility. It was very relieving to feel so comfortable and welcomed by the staff and the other clients. My therapist (Lisa) went above and beyond for me throughout my stay in the facilty. She was the first therapist ive ever had that was able to make me feel comfortable enough to let down my guard down and share some painful past trauma that has been eating me up for years and years and was playing a very key role in my relapses. Lisa will forever hold a special place in my heart. The rest of the staff was also a very important part in my process at Mountainview. Ashley, Allie, Cooper, Eric, the Nurse Melissa, Olivia, Michelle and all the BHT staff and admissions department will forever hold a special place in my heart. The love that i was shown by the staff at this facility goes a very long way for a person like me. I love Mountainview Recovery Center and i would not hesitate to send a loved one struggling with addiction to this facility. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FACILITY. If you are struggling with addiction please do not hesitate to reach out! THIS PLACE CARES AND WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE!Jimmy C.
Truly a wonderful place. The owners and staff truly care about the clients, and I was very lucky to have the opportunity to come to such a beautiful place to begin my recovery. Every part of the treatment experience was individualized yet well-planned. Iâ€™m so happy I was able to come here to begin to reverse the devastating effects of addiction on my life. From the time I stepped foot into the facility - the staff immediately began to assist me in taking a look at my part in my addiction, challenge negative thoughts and figure out behaviors I could address and change to move forward. I initially planned on staying for 30 days and ended up staying nearly 60 before transitioning to sober living, but I will be continuing SAIOP with Mountain View. I have to especially thank Ashley, Mike, Lisa, Ali, Michelle and Olivia. All of the staff is wonderful. They sincerely care, and they will go above and beyond to help you if you are willing to change.James R.
Lisa Fredsall - Clinical Director; LCSW, LCAS
Ashley Meehan - Director of Operations; CSAC, ICADC
Ashley Meehan, a Pennsylvania native, is Mountainview Recoveryâ€™s director of operations. She began working in the treatment industry as a behavioral health technician and learned very quickly that she loved spending time listening and connecting with individuals struggling with addiction and alcoholism. Ashley decided to go back to school and obtain her certification so that she could both speak to these individuals from an experiential standpoint and help them clinically. She quickly progressed in her career and moved into an admissions role, where she was able to continue connecting with individuals in need of serious help. In her admissions role, Ashley was able to better understand the function and process and procedures behind the scenes for getting these people into treatment. After several years of working in an admissions role and becoming the director, Ashley went back to school again to further her education and learn about billing, coding, and the relationships between the provider/facilities and the insurance companies. As she continued to progress in her career, she was given the opportunity to cross-train and learn about all the different roles within the organization. Ashley was even given the opportunity to fly out to different states and help with the function of their sister facilities. With a dream to manage a facility of her own, Ashley has finally found a safe place where people can grow and recover. In her heart, she truly believes that Mountainview Recovery is a place where individuals feel welcomed and loved regardless of their background and what they have been through. In short, her role as the director of operations at Mountainview Recovery is everything she ever wanted for her career and more.
Eric Meehan - Director of Admissions
Eric Meehan was born and raised in Staten Island, New York. He completed school with honors and studied at Johnson and Wales for Culinary Arts. While in college, Eric began to experiment with drugs and alcohol. He became addicted to pain medications â€“ an addiction that soon led him to using heroin. In light of his new addiction, Eric began doing things he never thought he would do, and he consequently became very disappointed in the person he was becoming. He knew deep down inside that this life wasnâ€™t â€śrightâ€ť for him; he couldnâ€™t continue seeing the constant looks of disappointment in his family membersâ€™ eyes. By going through treatment and being honest with his family, Eric found recovery, and he has been clean and sober since January 2010. He started working in the treatment field to both share his message and give hope to individuals who do not believe recovery is possible for them. He truly loves helping people, working with families, and offering individuals the belief that hope is possible.
