  • I had a really good experience! I learned a lot about how not to react on impulse, getting honest with myself and catching myself when I begin sinking back into old behaviors. The staff is really good and you can really connect with them. The residences are super nice, like the nicest place I have ever been too. I would definitely give people that also have addictions a reference to this place because it really works and helps a lot.

  • I have been to treatment centers before and this was the best experience I have ever had! The approach was great. I needed the structure because when I don't feel like doing something I don't do it. I like that we have to do the groups. I also like that they keep females and males separated because I wasn't distracted. The staff is actually very caring and there are people in recovery, the staff doesn't just treat you as an addict and they aren't disrespectful.

  • Ambrosia was something that changed my life. It helped me with the beginning stages of my recovery and I am excited to see what happens in the future and to stay sober. When I first I got here, I wasn't open to working on myself. After being here for a little bit I became willing and was able to really work on letting things go and becoming a better version of myself. I gained a lot of knowledge while here and I feel that I gained tools that will help me work continue to work on myself after this and work a good program of recovery.

  • When I first came I wasn't ready to share everything. I didn't trust anyone. After that, my therapist really helped me to start sharing and gained my trust. I started listening to his guidance. I have learned to just share instead of keeping everything to myself. Drugs and alcohol were my solution for everything instead of just sharing where I was at. I am ready to change that and make it right! I am grateful and have no complainants. Everyone was great.I'm really grateful for the program and all the staff here. They really helped me to change my life!

  • I came down and was comfortable right away. I was able to open up immediately. I got out things that I thought I would never talk about and take to my grave. I felt safe with my therapist and group. I put myself in vulnerable situations and opened up to people. I learned that it's okay to open up and not keep things to myself. I needed that help. All of the therapist were amazing. I began remembered things I had mental blocks with. Now that they have been exposed I am more comfortable with myself and what I have been through. Now I can help others to become comfortable like I have. All of the techs have helped me and always check on you. Everyone is very kind and has helped me a lot. I would recommend Ambrosia because I came from a treatment center and thought I wasn't going to get much help here. That wasn't the case. I got so much help. All the therapist have their doors up and you can trust them. I can trust all of the staff that if I went to them about something I know that it would not get spread. They encourage higher power which is very important and the twelve steps. They give you a good foundation. We did different activities which helped us get to know each other and realize everyone has the same feelings. Family day was the most intense and therapeutic family day I have ever attended. I was made comfortable enough to go up in front of everyone and discuss my feelings. They take us to twelve step meetings and they are very good and gave me a lot of insight. They give you a good foundation.

  • Ambrosia helped me with my grief issues and my co dependent issues but most of all how to live life on life's terms. Something I struggled with for years. They taught me not only how to stop using but made me realize I needed to change who I was on the inside. I would highly encourage anybody struggling with addiction in their lives, to reach out to Ambrosia. They have a well balanced diet of therapy and fun. I owe my life to these people.
