What patients say about Hill Recovery...

“Such a wonderful program. The staff is so positive, they always made me feel comfortable."

Roberta M. Patient

“It worked wonders for me. I am very happy with the program. God bless. Thank you all for everything.”

Steven V. Riverside

“I would highly recommend Hill Recovery. As an adolescent I cam in unwilling, not wanting to be sober, and was in denial about having a problem and that I was just going through a "teenage phase." It sounds so cliche, but I really learned so much from this program and the peers around me.”

K.S. Patient

“It works.” That is what you want to hear about Hill Recovery… That is what we all want to hear about Hill. What I have found is that Hill Recovery Works, as long as I am present and willing. Hill provides outstanding support, guidance and the tools (and how to use them) to the alcoholic or addict that is in treatment. Also sets forth the path for succeeding in recovery. Hill is much different than just treatment. I am currently at Hill Recovery a place where I feel cared for and happy. Actually, I also feel safe here. What may be counter intuitive is that I am bummed that I am leaving out patient. I’m done here, but the journey is just beginning. Thanks to the amazing staff, I have the confidence to do what I need to do to stay sober and I know if I have any doubts or challenges I can always stop by Hill, or just pick up the phone. My sincerest appreciation to you all---My wife thanks you also!
