Life after MF
Cory - Morriston, FL
Good day! I hope whoever reads this and is questioning about whether or not to go to MF that you do it! I left the program over a couple months ago and they built me back up, educated me on addiction and my life is finally on track! I enlisted in the military because after dealing with my childhood trauma am not fearful anymore. I have continued in recovery and it will always be my priority #1. I would not be where I am today if I didn't just surrender and go to MF. I will keep in touch!
Patty - Morriston, FL
My son is currently at Mending Fences and I wanted to say that I am getting him back! Mr. Collins, There are not enough words to tell you how thankful I am to you and your team. I prayed to God that he would send his angels to assist in helping my son, and my prayers were answered when you came in to save the day. You have NO idea how much my family and I appreciated all that you have done for my son. May God bless you and your team for all the support, encouragement, sentiment, and care you provided us in one of the most difficult times in our lives. Thank you so very much!
Never say "I Got This"
Joseph M - Morriston, FL
I have gone to 12 other treatment programs and I learned early on how to say what I needed to say to get me through and make my family happy. This was different. MF made me feel like I was worth recovery and sobriety. Not for my family or friends, but for me so that I can live. Something switched in me when the CEO himself (who is in recovery and understands us which made me feel like I was right where I needed to be) showed so much care and compassion towards me and every client. He pulled me aside one day and said to me, "you know that we know you are worth it and we will believe it until you do". I don't know what it was about that but something switched in me and I finally realized all this time I was trying to get sober for other people and never realized I was worth it until that moment. I have been beating myself up for years and I finally realized after he said to me, "Never say I got this, because we will never have this but we can work at it everyday". It hit home. My therapist was amazing and so was the Clinical Director. I have never been somewhere that I felt like the whole team was working to get me well. I am forever grateful for MF. I now joined their alumni program so I will continue to have a support group since I left. THANK YOU!
Mending Fences Review
Patti L. - Morriston, FL
Mending Fences surely saved my life and sanity. Set in the country on the same premises as a horse farm, Mending Fences is not a one-dimensional rehab program, but rather deals with the entire mind, body and soul. This is a very intensive and holistic approach: Group and individual therapy, equine therapy, meditation, a gym, swimming pools, and nature outings help the entire person. Addictions are symptoms of an underlying issue such as trauma and the therapy provided at Mending Fences works with the client to get to the very root of the issues causing the addiction. The staff works very hard at creating a safe, comfortable environment. They really work "with" clients rather than "for" or "at" them. You are expected to your own work that will be successfully guided by your therapist and peers. I will be forever thankful that I took this step.
I found my solution at Mending Fences
Fritz - Morriston, FL
Since I arrived at Mending Fences I have had a great experience. The Behavioral Health Technicians were the absolute best at encouraging me and keeping me grounded and motivated throughout my recovery process. I will forever be indebted to them for their important roles throughout my recovery. My therapist was a major influence during my recovery and stay. She displayed the true definition of humility, compassion, love and respect for those with substance abuse addictions including myself. I am so happy that I had the opportunity that she was a part of my recovery. Overall, Mending Fences was more than a recovery center, it was a place to heal and assisted me with my addiction and treatment. I will recommend this facility to those that need help. I can honestly say that the staff here are loving, compassionate and kind. I Love them all!!!!!
Changed my life
Josh - Morriston, FL
My name is Josh, and I would like to tell you about myself and my story. I've been drinking for over 23 years, and the program has helped me put that to an end for good. I am 35 years old and I've made many attempts to quit drinking. This is the best opportunity I've ever been given to really make it in this world and thrive as a sober man. The Therapy and coping skills I've developed here have changed my life forever. I've uncovered a lot of trauma from my childhood that has been suffocating me from deep within. I've released tension and misery that has built up throughout my life. I've taken advantage of the opportunity to talk about trauma I've kept secret my entire life. I lost an unbelievable woman who actually stuck by my side throughout my disease of alcoholism. She stood by hoping I would change. I lost my chance to raise my son with my wife as a complete family. Those relationships are being mended now. I burned the bridge of respect I had from my family and my close friends. I even lost the house I called home. I am grateful I had not killed someone else or myself. I thought life was over for me. I know now it is not. I know now I have my whole life a head of me. I would have died, if I kept living the way I was with alcohol. This program engrained a strong sense of hope in my now clear and sober mind. I can not thank you enough for the dedication you put into me and the others here at Mending Fences. I've been given back my life.
Adam - Morriston, FL
After many treatment centers I found my solution here at Mending Fences. I was reluctant at first and thought I knew it all. They were patient with me and I got so much out of my time there!!!! This staff actually cares and if you are wondering wether or not to come here or send your loved one here... DO IT!!! They helped me immensely!!!!
"I have been to several treatment centers before and this one actually helped me get to the root cause of my addiction. The staff was incredible and helped me a lot! The facility is so serene and beautiful that it gave me a peaceful place to get help. I have to say most of all I am going to miss my horse, Mr. Scott. He helped me so much. I'm proud now to join the alumni program!" Adam R.
Working on showing what Mending Fences has to offer those dealing with drug and alcohol addiction. Great day ahead!!
