Our son was at Destination Hope for treatment. Although, he has only been out of Destination Hope for a week or so, he seems to be doing fine and has a very positive attitude. More so than in the past. It is a bit to early to give a final review, but he seemed to react well to the facility and the treatment. Jonathon was very attentive and kept us informed throughout his stay. We asked for a weekly conference call with our son and the Destination Hope team. I highly suggest doing that.

I've been to about 12 different rehabs and some were good and some sucked. I was referred to this place because a friend knew someone that worked there. I must say that I am so happy that I took his advice. This place changed my life. I left there about 3 months ago and I couldn't believe that my life could be this good. I have been able to stay in touch with my therapist and they have always taken the time for me. I know that there are a lot of bad press out in the world about treatment in Florida but this place is top notch. I normally don't even write reviews but I felt that as I am going through the steps that I pay amends to the people that helped me get to where I am today.

Destination Hope literally changed my life, my world, my perspective. They took me from the gates of hell, walked me through and placed me into recovery, into love, into life. I saw no hope for myself when I went in there, I had accepted a lifestyle of drugs, prostitution and living on the street going in and out of jails and institutions for 10 years. I was court ordered to go there and didn't want to be there, didn't want recovery and I made that clear. After working with my therapist, hearing the testimony of the alumni coordinator, attending their group therapy with other staff members and laughing with the techs I found myself waking up happy looking forward to my day and wanting recovery which was a complete miracle because I was waking up with a twisted. Feeling in the pit of my stomach and wishing for death. They restored my hope, showed me love and lead me into recovery. Today I'm 6 months sober which is close to the longest I've ever remained sober and I'm on my 8th step which is the furthest I've ever got in my steps. I have friends today, I can laugh today, I am free from the obsession to use drugs. I have a job, I am a productive memeber of society. I used to be up for days on the streets and watching people drive by in their cars going to work, wishing for a normal life, wondering how they are able to live without drugs, yuerning to be a part of and now I'm here, thanks to destination hope, God, a little bit of hope and a little bit of willingness. I would recommend this program to anyone who feels hopeless, broken or has a family member who can't seem to get this right. I was a hard case and they helped to restore me to sanity. I believe they can do this for you and your family and friends to. I can never repay them for all the work they put into me. I am forever Grateful for every staff member at destination hope.

I had an amazing experience at Destination Hope. The treatment and therapy I received was outstanding. I learned how to deal with the deep seeded issues I had, not just my problems with drugs and alcohol. Also, I was able to still feel apart of society with outside meetings, fitness and weekend field trips. All the things I was taught and the work I put in at DH, prepared me for recovery on my own. I now have a life beyond my dreams, and I sincerely thank DH and the great staff.

Destination Hope Women's program is by far the best treatment facility in the Ft. Lauderdale area. They are equipped to treat dual diagnosis. The therapists and programs are amazing, especially the Tuesday night Family Program. Great support from all of the staff. If I had to recommend a facility to help a woman recover from substance abuse, I would strongly recommend this facility. Maria G

An incredible treatment center! Destination Hope is one of the best treatment centers that specialize in dual diagnosis. I have worked in the medical field for a few years now, and I know their therapists and staff well. They are some of the best people I know. I have friends that got better here. They are miracle workers.
