My wife Pam chose The River Source after calling a number of treatment centers around the country. We had hoped to find something closer to home (Seattle, WA) in the process, Pam ran across River Source. I do not recall who she first contacted. In the course of a couple of weeks she spoke with a number of River Source Representatives, these talks persuaded her to pick River Source.
We arrived on a Tuesday. I stayed through the intake process as Pam was so unsure of the whole process or that she could answer simple questions. Two days later she had the desk clerk call and let me know that she was doing alright.
Two weeks later I flew down from Seattle for a visit on a Saturday and Sunday. When I saw her I was amazed at the change in her facial improvement. She had a smile and the many “worry/ depressed” lines had left her face.
I was able to meet many of the staff during those two days and was deeply impressed by the humanistic approach in dealing with all of the personnel. I am impressed with the orderly manner in which day to day activities were carried out.
Although Pam was a skeptic of the 12-step Holistic program-she I snow a believer. In 30 days you were able to reverse her daily life pattern and return her to an active human being. She is no longer alcohol dependent Thank you very much.
