"My experience with the ED Program here has been phenomenal. I have learnt a new way to eat, live and be healthy that I never knew ever existed for me. There were doctors walking around and any time I had something going on in my mind I could talk to any of them and they knew my case. I love the clinical staff especially my therapist, Chrissy. She is amazing; she has on point from the very first time we met. She had me working on my emotions and working on my feelings and no stuff that we didn't discuss that."
"The biofeedback showed me how to relax. I started learning techniques – breathing, different imageries. I'm practicing meditation to the best of my ability – and there's just so many things that I have got from this program. After I got into AA, I was with the similar people around who used to call such places spin dryers, but they are not. This place is not a spin dryer. Sovereign Health is a great place for recovery, because you learn so much more than not drinking or not using drugs. You learn the whole gamut of thinking and accepting yourself and relaxation."
"There was more than just therapy. There were life skills that were taught and everyone here cared genuinely about each person in the program. It was an honor, when I received my Masters degrees, that Daniel Duffy actually came to my graduation to support me – because he told me when I was here, "When you graduate – I wanna be at the ceremony". Not 'if' you graduate, 'if' you make it, he said "'when' you make it, I wanna be there" - and he showed up and that was an awesome experience and such an honor that he cared enough to have faith in me – that I could make it."
"I was a chronic pain patient, been having facial pain and headaches for about 10 years. My life was imploding on itself. I was not functioning at all and I feel like – I just feel like I’ve landed - I emailed someone that I’ve landed into a supportive sanctuary here. I just feel supported in every need."
"Unfortunately, I do have experience with other treatment centers and this is one of the best that I’ve been around. The staff is incredible. The groups are very informative. But, also, kind of friendly – they don’t bore you to death – they talk about very applicable things for anybody who is looking to recover. It’s just great, it really is – I actually enjoy coming here"
"You do get to see a medical doctor for any of your needs – there are different needs for different people"
"If you really want to get clean – this is definitely the place to do it. They have unlimited resources here. They’ll put you on medication. They won’t let you just withdraw really bad – they’ll give you something to help with it, so you’re not like dying in your room. If you’re serious about it – this is definitely the place to recover"
"It was great - a life changing experience that changed my view of myself and the world. Wonderful group therapy sessions, with organized contributions from various specialists. The rules and regulations were clearly stated and carried out throughout my stay. They highlighted the importance of compassion, self observation and the significance of understanding oneself and others. Without a doubt, I would recommend Sovereign Health of California for anyone suffering from dependency on substances or external vices."
"I received superb treatment while I was here. This program gave the clarity I never received at any other facility I had been in. More than that, I went places where I had never been before or explored. Received a different view of my addiction. The staff was very professional, I learned to surrender and realize that I was powerless. I enjoyed the diversity provided by the different facilitators. It gave me a different take to a common problem. I would definitely recommend Sovereign Health of California Treatment Center to anyone!"
"The joy and peace that you have helped me to find is priceless! I walked into your group emotionless, scared, tired and jaded. Thanks to you guys, I can walk out confident, worthy, joyful and peaceful. I read my meditation books and am thankful you turned me on to them. I remember your stories and learn from them. Thus far I am a success and much of that success is because of your wisdom. Please know that you have changed me within myself and my perspective on life, my body and my soul is better because of your help."
"When I first arrived at Sovereign Health of California Treatment Center, the only feeling I could identify with was fear. Fear of my past life experiences, fear of friends and family - and the most extreme fear was of myself. I had spent the last year of my life intensely self-destructing. In my time at Sovereign Health of California, I have been blessed with the help of an amazing staff. You all welcomed me and my past. At first you all held my hand as we came to understand who I was. As time went on you walked right beside me. As I walk into my future, I know you are all behind me, letting me go, yet I know if I fall there will be someone to catch me. I know now more than the feeling of fear these days; sad, mad, glad, hurt, afraid and ashamed have become part of my vocabulary. I know I can never re-pay you for your patience and insight, but I will do my best to 'Pay It Forward', living my best life in the grace of God. To my one-on-one therapists, Suzanne and Daniel, you have been angels God has and continues to use in restoring my life. The 'touch' each of you have placed upon my heart is a 'touch' I hope to pass on. May God bless you all and bless the work you are doing here at Sovereign Health of California Treatment Center."
