The Delray Recovery Center has helped me in many ways. They helped me deal better with my traumas, become more educated about the disease of addiction, and open up more. The Delray Recovery Center crew is a great group of people who are willing to help if you are willing to change. I have strong hope after your recovery program. There is no doubt that the therapists are fantastic people. They helped me out so much and I won’t ever forget them and what they did to help me in recovery.

It brings me pleasure to acknowledge the excellence of your facility. My husband recently stayed at the Delray Beach site. I was so pleased with my visit. Immediately, I noticed the neatly-groomed grounds and cleanliness of the rooms. It was very impressive.
During my husband’s stay, he became very ill and needed emergency medical care. It is impossible to express, in words, our thanks and appreciation to Brett for his unbelievable job of observation, caring, and kindness to him. Also, for his patience with my many phone calls and willingness to assist beyond the call of duty with compassion.
I am also thankful to Mike, who assisted with the packing, and Joe for his conversations. The respectful and helpful manner of The Delray Recovery Center staff was beyond what I expected. My gratitude and prayers are with all. God Bless you and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I think the world of you and what you’re doing to help people. I do owe my life to you, Brett, and Mike, literally. Words aren’t enough to express my gratitude, nor could anything in this world. Maybe someday, when you run into me clean and sober, you’ll get some ‘thanks’ from above.
Those several days I spent with you changed something in me. I can’t quite put my finger on it–but it’s good. And you guys all had a part in it. For that, my deepest gratitude belongs to you, Joe, Brett, Mike, and the young lady who welcomed me with all the grace she had in her.
My hope is that we can become friends. Quality people like yourselves is what I need in my life.

Why has The Delray Recovery Center been successful when other programs were not? The Delray Recovery Center was a much longer term program than he had participated in previously, and Mark knew that if he didn’t follow the rules that he had no chance of future family support.
These consequences may have been just as important as the rehab center itself. They staff at The Delray Recovery Center is appropriately strict, honest and demanding of their clients. They helped him address legal issues as well as helping him gain employment.
This was a relatively unique aspect of the center. It forced individuals to be proactive and encouraged optimism regarding the future.
I do not know if this is similar at other programs. The therapists at The Delray Recovery Center have also been exceptional: Chris, his therapist has been great–forthright, and great at communication. He has helped Mark sort out numerous psychosocial problems. Mark has continued to follow up with him intermittently since completing the program at DRC. I have no hesitation in recommending The Delray Recovery Center for someone with Mark’s challenges.
