I initially wanted a quick fix with my first attempt at recovery from alcohol. Found a therapy program that only involved one week of detox and outpatient weekly appointments with a therapist. After going through this program for a couple of months, I realized it was doomed to failure. Sure enough, I relapsed after eight months of sobriety. When I got to the point of losing my wife and family due to alcohol it, became clear that I had to enter a program that would work. After seeking the recommendations of several friends in the health care profession, the one program that consistently came up was that of the Villa Paradiso. I was there for four weeks and it has completely changed my life. The staff are friendly, experienced and professional. The therapy was amazing and given me strong confidence in my long term recovery. Villa Paradiso has made me a better father, husband and human being.
