To the magnificent LVRC—I first discovered LVRC when a relative attended a few years prior to me. She couldn't say enough good things about it and there was overwhelming evidence of its positive influence on her. After researching my treatment options, I chose LVRC for their pain management program and qualified specialist. During the pain program I realized things about myself that I had overlooked for a decade, and I began my evolution to recovery. The culinary staff was amazingly accommodating, the medical and nursing staff compassionate and responsive; the counselor/administrators non-judgmental with a realistic honesty. Also the support of the RT’s (Recovery Technicians) and receptionists was the icing on the cake. I became comfortable and connected with everyone for the first time. Please believe me when I say that that alone was worth it. Though I was resistant, they never gave up on me. LVRC is by far one of the most difficult, enlightening, wonderful, life changing experiences of my existence. The best decision I have made thus far. Without them I wouldn't have 16 months clean with a renewed positive outlook on life. My appreciation is immeasurable, thank you.
