"It has been 31 months and counting since the last time I remember that awful feeling and need of what almost beat me and destroyed my life. I am proud and thankful to the staff at Las Encinas Hospital (my family & friends ) for helping me beat the addiction that had taken over me for many years without any turning back. Many times , I felt helpless, worthless and didn’t even want to be around the people who are so special in my life. During my time in rehab, I felt as if a new beginning and a second chance at life was given to me and that there will never be a turning back, after attending different treatment centers in my hometown of Boston, Mass, without any positive results and without any real help, My wife finally reached out and found this great place ( Los Angeles ) away from home where the beginning to my new found self started. I can finally enjoy my wife, kids, family and friends who stood by me every step of the way. I also wanted to take the time to say “ Thank You “ to my far away family at Las Encinas for giving me the support, the treatment and most importantly for giving me again the chance to live sober." "This in the type of place that is a step above and beyond. Recently had a chance to meet the staff and check out their facilities, not to mention the calming atmosphere. Their philosophy is a bit of eastern and western ideas coming together and their treatment programs seem quite impressive, working to help one deal with underlying issues rather than training one with coping skills. Different people learn and build in different ways and this can help achieve that. "I’ve been addicted to cocaine my entire adult life. It was hard to avoid, because it was everywhere where I lived. Parties, social events, you name it. Until I went to Las Encinas Hospital, I had no clue how bad it was. Without the help of my "new" friends, at this place, I don't know where I would be." Aside from that they have great facilities and a very dedicated staff. They have a team that works with you one on one and addresses your specific needs, whatever those may be. The surrounding and atmosphere is very calming too. Of course this isn't cheap but it will likely be life changing. If you are considering treatment, it would be highly recommended to stop by here and take a tour and talk to some of the people to see if this would be a great fit." "This program SAVED MY LIFE!!!! I can't imagine what my life would've been without their help, support and care. They were always there for me and helped me get thru some of the toughest times in my life. Now, I enjoy m life with my wife, daughters, family and dog"
