What patients are saying about us
See what our clients have to say about the value of retreat.
My name’s Samantha and I’m happily engaged. I’m the proud, responsible mother of a three-and-a-half year-old daughter. I’m a full-time student, a sister, a cousin, an aunt, a friend, and a daughter myself. And I’d be none of those things unless I was also a sober, recovering drug addict and alcoholic.
For eight years I was an IV heroin user on the brink of death. My life was a mess. My relationships were broken. My family was baffled, and my soul was dead. On December 22nd, 2011, I showed up at the Retreat looking for nothing but a break from my own despair. I had no idea what I was about to be given. Retreat took care of me. They listened to me. They taught me. They encouraged me and they loved me. Without the compassionate care I received as a patient there, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
So, thank you Retreat – for my life, my family and my future.
After using drugs and alcohol for over 10 years, I did not believe that rehab would be an option for me; I didn’t even know how to get into one! I walked through the doors of Retreat on January 10, 2012, weighing only 78 pounds and feeling lost, afraid, beat down and hopeless. I could no longer look in the mirror at this point, and wasn’t even sure if I wanted to live any longer. I knew I wanted to get clean, I just didn’t know what to expect. From the minute I walked through the door, I felt the love and compassion that Retreat offers. I immediately became involved in the groups that Retreat offers and I was able to truly work on myself. I was slowly beginning to fill the holes within me that I always filled with drugs and alcohol. I was able to smile, laugh, and feel a freedom that I don’t believe I ever felt before.
Retreat at Lancaster Pennsylvania was amazing and it saved my life. I cannot say enough about it they go above and beyond for their patients.
As a previous patient of Retreat, I can say they are the first place I would recommend to anyone looking for help. The atmosphere is great and it feels very individualized. Nice facility and you will meet a lot of great people there who will spend as much time needed to help you any way they can.
Retreat is a kind and caring place where I began my recovery journey. Good balance of clinical therapy and holistic activities. Top notch staff, nice facilities and the food is good to boot.
