New River was the place that I account for literally saving my life. I am coming up on 5 months clean and sober and its primarily due to this awesome and amazing place. The staff was amazing, Kristen and Melissa are incredible, knowledgeable, and were always open to talk to whenever it was needed. Being a client there had its ups and downs as I went through some emotional issues, but I had the solid support of the staff, including the Head Tech, Angie who was always supportive and there to share my feeling with. Val and Doc are caring, loving people who love their clients and have nothing but their best interest at heart. I will always remember my experience at New River as a positive one and I would definitely recommend this treatment center to anyone seeking treatment. Melissa, the Director and Primary Therapist, has grown to be one of my closest advocates. We have worked on my trauma and I have learned to open up to her about everything and anything without judgement. She's a strong, amazing woman.

Today we have 4 months clean and sober. Man does it feel good to say that. I have been struggling with addiction since i was 16 years old and an eating disorder since the age of 12. For the past 7 years my life has been a revolving door using , treatment, halfway and repeat. I was lost in the cycle and my life had passed the point of spiraling out of control. I was dying. My disease was destroying everyone and everything including me. I was on the at the point of no return. After countless detox's and drug treatment centers not only did my family start to give up but I myself had lost hope that treatment worked. November 16 , 2015 I made a call like i had done so many times before. This time though I came in contact with a women Kristin from a woman's facility called New River Wellness. I had never heard of this place before and believe me I had been around the block when it came to the Florida treatment center shuffle. The place Kristin describe was not like the other rehabs i had been it was small and intimate. I felt how much she cared and how passionate she was about recovery just from our first phone call. Something about that conversation gave me a littler glimpse of hope and just enough to drive to try treatment one more time. I've found my second family at New River. This place is like a diamond in the rough. They loved me till I could love myself. Today they are one of my biggest supporters. This place and the people that work here have helped saved my life. I am not just another number doing my 30 days in treatment then thrown back out to fight on my own. Today I am more then a number I am Courtney Haviland recovering addict that is no Longer fighting my disease on my own. I am a part of a Family that I found at New River Wellness Center.

As a former client, my experience here has been great. I attended this treatment center with the idea that sobriety wasn't for me, I was just trying to keep my legal issues and housing situation at bay. After time spent here allowing myself to be open to staff and clients, I have a new sense of my worth and what I am capable of. Today I can proudly say that I am now living in a half way house, I am employed, and life just continues to get better. I came in as a lost, confused, broken person feeling as if there was no way out. Without the help of this treatment center and its staff, I do not think that I'd be where I am today. Thanks NRWC!

There is far too much to say about this treatment center. Most importantly, it is not coed. The issues women face in the area of addiction are different from males. In addition, New River is open to listening. Listening to the client first and foremost, as well as the significant people in her life. This is not a " cookie cutter" treatment center, and sadly, more exist than one can even imagine. Valerie and the staff she has assembled are exemplary at what they do. A harsh word is never spoken, and they all try to be role models for these women. Do not infer that this means the team is bamboozled. No way! I prefer to use the term " velvet hammer" The approach is direct , the therapy techniques individualized, groups are closely monitored and respect is highly emphasized .. Respect for self, respect for others. Let me not dismiss wonderful "Doc" as he is lovingly called. Doc is a straight shooter. He presents the best way each person's disease can be treated should medication be necessary. He is direct, thorough, and works with the family should this be an option.However, Doc, one of the finest psychiatrists I have met since arriving in SE Florida,presents the disease with taking medication or without it. The choice is yours. In a setting such as this, where the numbers of clients is so small compared to many places, I recommend without hesitation sending your loved one to New River Wellness. You become a part of an environment that is safe, genuinely caring,and professional. If you or your daughter is suffering from this disease, I recommend coming here. The environment is positive and hopeful. The tools are provided, but recovery still remains in your hands or your loved one's hands.
