For years my father has struggled with addiction, and it has deeply affected our entire family. . After a near-death experience, my father decided to enter a 30-day intensive treatment program at Azure Acres, and it was the start of a new chapter of his life. I am absolutely positive that the support, care, treatment, and education my father received at Azure Acres saved his life. He was in a terrible place in his life, and the guidance Azure Acres provided him allowed him to see the meaning in life once more. He came out of Azure Acres committed to working each day to stay clean, become healthier, and rebuild the relationships his addiction had harmed. My relationship with my father has improved immensely now that he is clean, and able to truly be himself, and I know that Azure Acres has been a huge part of getting my father back. I visited my father once while he was at Azure Acres. In fact, I brought my two small children with me to visit him, and I felt very comfortable while we were there. The staff was very accommodating and kind. We sat and listened to several meetings, had lunch, and spent some time together as a family. While at first I was hesitant to visit, I have to say that what I heard while at Azure Acres changed my view on addiction, and, more importantly, on the personal struggles my dad faces daily. I am so grateful that I was able to listen to staff at Azure Acres talk honestly and openly about addiction because I gained a lot of insight and knowledge. Since my father finished his 30 days at Azure Acres, he has remained clean and sober for more than two years. He continues to return to Azure Acres to be a part of alumni and aftercare activities on a weekly basis, and I can tell that it is something he enjoys very much. He has found a purpose, and Azure Acres has allowed him to continue to grow by giving him many opportunities to remain an active part of their community. My father is now the person I know he could always be. He takes pride in his work, enjoys helping others, and has become a more kind and involved family member. I thank Azure Acres so very much for helping him find the path back to life. I hope that this review will be read by someone looking for help or by someone looking to help someone they love. I strongly encourage anyone struggling with addiction to give Azure Acres a fair try. It could change your life in amazing ways.
