From the moment I walked through the doors, I was greeted warmly by my first name by every staff member there. I walked in a broken woman, wanting to take my own life. My therapist allowed me to figure out a lot of things about myself, to get down to cause. I was able to walk out feeling whole. Everyone here truly cares about you and are passionate about their job.

I didn’t want to leave Ambrosia. They treat you so well here and take you in as your own. The culture and the people make your stay seem like you’re not just in a rehab program. They actually care and that's so hard to come by. I’m very thankful for Ambrosia and for every staff member. I know if I need anything, I can knock on any of their doors and they are always willing to help out.

I almost died before coming to this treatment center. When they told me about Ambrosia, I was scared. I’d been to a ton of places before. The minute I got here, I was treated with so much respect. Everyone truly cares about you and values you and their jobs. I’m so happy I came here. Love you all!

I’ve never been to treatment before and, although I was scared, I made the leap. I’m so glad I made it here. It's all phenomenal. Thank you to all the staff that spent time with me and helped me understand the real me behind my addiction.

I went to Ambrosia last year. I was in the trauma program. I learned a lot about myself and ways to cope with my feelings. The staff and the treatment program saved my life, and I will be forever grateful.

Overall, I had a positive experience at Ambrosia. The staff, including the techs and the counselors, were all welcoming and helpful, always treating the clients with respect and kindness.

Ambrosia is a great facility to learn about addiction. The staff is very knowledgeable. The sleeping quarters were very comfortable and the food was great. I have no complaints, because my experience was very pleasant here. I especially enjoyed my case load group with my counselor. He's a great person who made me feel comfortable enough to share with my peers. Overall, my experience with all of the staff and peers was great! Much better than first attempt at American addiction centers.

Ambrosia Treatment Center is a very helpful place for addicts who seek recovery. My experience here was helpful. I could have learned a lot more if I would have taken more suggestions and followed the rules better. Overall, I honestly believe Ambrosia is a good place for people who are willing.

My experience at Ambrosia was good. The counselor in charge of my treatment plan and therapy was superb and had vast knowledge of the topics in which I was treated. The community interaction my opinion was the best part of the Ambrosia experience.

When I first got here, I was 2000 miles from home, no job, no house. But, things changed rapidly when I was working with my therapist who helped me explore the real Matthew and pushed me to understand the true nature of my disease of addiction. I was broken, spiritually dead and didn't know who I was. Five weeks later, I have respect, strength, courage, honor, honesty and love.

It has been a true pleasure getting to know the professionals at Ambrosia. They are asking all the right questions. It became immediately obvious that their primary concern was to understand the unique circumstances of my situation. Knowing they cared about what was at stake made all the difference in the world.

Amazing staff. They really give a lot of attention to the individual and the family. I was at Ambrosia for 90+ days. They took care of me like I was one of their own. They were always so good to me and really made me feel a part of a family.

Peter battled addiction for over 20 years. In January 2018, he finally got (and stayed sober) after treatment at Ambrosia.

"My therapist really got down to the core of what my problem is. She's given me tools to walk out that door today and be a sober man, and to stay a sober man."

Review Questions

Every review on our site or on Google, Facebook,, etc. comes from real people that found real hope at Ambrosia.

You don’t have to take our word for it. There are hundreds of positive reviews on sites across the internet.

Here’s an exact quote from this year’s DCF state inspection report:

“The organization has made it its goal to keep maintaining excellence in everything they do. Their clients are very satisfied with their clinical treatment and the therapists are always open to new suggestions to give their clients the best treatment. “

Here’s another quote from a letter written by State Attorney Dave Aronberg:

“Please accept our heartfelt appreciation for you dedicated and distinguished service, and for all you have done and continue to do to ensure that individuals with substance use disorder not only receive appropriate care but are protected from predators with the industry.”

Quite simply, we’ve been in business for over 10 years, and we do good work. Our care goes well above the standards of insurance companies, state boards and our competitors. We don’t cut corners and we do what’s right for each person — no matter what.

Yes! These stories prove that you can get (and stay) sober! Even if you have tried other treatment facilities before, the hope you’re looking for is just one phone call away.

Cris Carter

 In the 1980s, it was out of control. Without much thought, I found myself regularly abusing alcohol and cocaine. Despite the partying, I was looking pretty good on the field and my lifestyle was still hidden from the public. However, in the summer of 1990, cocaine caused me to fail my third drug test. Buddy Ryan, the coach of...

Jennifer’s Story

I remember laying on an air mattress that didn’t inflate anymore, in 80-degree weather, no air conditioning, empty vodka bottles laying on the floor and feeling absolutely miserable. I watched as my family slowly slipped into hopelessness right along with me. It was the worst ten years of my life. I had nothing and no one left towards the end...

Stephanie Morcom

In my early 20’s, I was diagnosed with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis, and my doctor started me on pain medication. Before I knew it, my life was a train wreck. I hated the person I was. Growing up in church, I believed that addiction was a moral issue, and I loathed the fact that prayer wasn’t taking it away....

Andrew Gallagher

My addiction started with smoking weed with friends or an occasional party on the weekend, but I quickly became interested in harder drugs, especially pills and psychedelics. Within a few years, my life had become a living hell. I would do anything to get money for the next high, even putting my life on the line. My actions tore my...

Daughter Sober: June 25, 2018

Susan Pearce

My daughter was desperate before Ambrosia took her in. She couldn’t stay sober, and I couldn’t stand her. She wasn't welcome in my home anymore. I know it was heartbreaking for her to hear me say that. She thought I hated her for all the awful things she put me through. Some days it felt like she was right. I...

Jacqueline Tobias

My addiction started at the age of 12 when I smoked marijuana for the first time. A couple of years later, I had my wisdom teeth removed and the surgeon gave me painkillers. I instantly fell in love with opiates and the way they made me feel. At the time, I had no idea that a doctor’s prescription could kick...

Jennifer Cleveland

Like so many others, I started drinking as a teenager with my friends. It started out innocent, but before I knew it, I had formed a relationship with alcohol that was going to take me to places I never imaged that I would go. When enough was enough, I knew I needed help. I came to treatment completely unmanageable and...

Nick Williams

I swore I'd never touch drugs, but it happened. Once I started smoking weed, I justified taking pills, then doing a little coke. I kept justifying until I needed to stick a needle in my arm to get out of bed in the morning. Buying, using, and hiding my addiction was a 24-hour grind. I couldn’t shake the constant, bone-chilling...

Benjamin Geigus

I started smoking weed when I was about 14 years old, which slowly turned in to harder drugs and a lot of drinking. I would go to parties and have a good time, but when everyone was done at the end of the night, I kept going. For some reason, I could never get enough. Things got worse when I...

Sivia Franko

My addiction started at the age of 18, right before college. I was working late nights and double shifts at a restaurant, and my boyfriend at the time gave me half of a pill to help with back pain from standing all day. I functioned normally for the first year, only taking them on the weekends during college. During the...

Pat Fay

It’s hard to say if I was genetically predisposed to addiction, but I do know that something is fundamentally different about how I process drugs and alcohol compared to other people. My using started out relatively innocent with what I consider average teenage behavior, but “normal” activities like smoking a joint or stealing a few beers from my parents had...

Lawrence Traynor

As far back as I can remember, I struggled with loneliness and a lack of self-worth. Alcoholism runs in my family yet; somehow, I never felt like I fit in. People drink and do drugs for many reasons: to change the way they feel, to cope with mental illnesses or to escape the past. But at the end of the...

Patrick Spross

When I started drinking on the corner as a kid, I had no idea where my addiction would eventually take me. A couple of years later and I would be selling drugs on that same corner. The progression of this disease catches up with you before you have any idea what is happening. Eventually, opiates and prescription drugs took over...

Daughter Sober October 28, 2011

Michele Schreck

My daughter’s addiction started with alcohol and eventually progressed to opiates, like so many do. We tried to hide it for a long time which put so much stress on our family relationships. After a while, unimaginable things started to happen. She was stealing, getting into car accidents, and getting in trouble with the law. It was awful watching my...

Brother Sober: August 8, 2016

Devyn Taylor

I didn’t even know what was happening to him until it was too late. I noticed that his actions were different, but I couldn’t figure out why. I was constantly worrying about him. Late at night, when I would hear the garage door open, I would sigh in relief because then I knew he was home safe. My brother’s addiction...

Child Sober: September 4, 2015

Melisa Grace Harrison

My daughter’s addiction started with prescription narcotics. As a young girl, she was sick often, and she was prescribed medication that eventually lead to her addiction. Once she graduated to heroin, things really got out of control. Heroin seemed so bad to me. I didn’t know how heroin looked or anyone that had ever tried it. Drugs robbed my daughter...

Lauren Schreck My addiction started when I was around 12 years old. I felt so different than my peers. Whether that was true or not, that was my reality. Everyone else seemed so sure of themselves and put together. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. I realized that if I experiment with drugs and alcohol, my classmates and...

Bill Scannell

I started drinking recreationally, but I quickly lost the power to control myself. I was angry and irritable constantly, and it tore me up to have to watch my family go through the pain of living with an addict. I put my family in danger many times over the years and caused more emotional pain than I could fathom. Despite...

Erik Hurvitz Imagine waking up every morning with the worst flu you've ever had in your life, compounded by crippling depression brought on by out-of-whack brain chemistry and the only way you know to temporarily make it better is to hurt the people you love most by stealing, manipulating and lying.

I was 12 years old when I had my first taste of alcohol. I snuck a bottle of Old Grand Dad out of the house to bring sledding with friends on a cold winter's day. All I wanted was to fit in. I remember how it burned my throat and, while I didn't like the taste, I loved the effect....

By the time I set out on my journey of recovery, my life had spiraled out of control. I knew if I didn’t act soon, death would surely be knocking on my door.

From an early age, I was in search of a means to be comfortable in my own skin. My first encounter with alcohol made me confident and able to speak freely. Even though I became sick from the alcohol, I could not wait to do it again. I drank every day in high school. From then on, the older I...

On the outside, I had it made. By 18 years old I was a successful makeup artist in Hollywood, working with famous clients on massive projects within the industry. I even won two Emmy’s for my work. But, behind closed doors, I was addicted to opiates. There was so much stigma in the industry about addiction that I knew if...


Don't see your insurance? Click to verify.


Not ready to call?

I don’t know if I need treatment.

You’re here because you know the problem is out of control. You’ve spent months if not years trying to convince yourself (and those around you) that your drug or alcohol use isn’t “that bad.”

Don’t let denial drag out the suffering. Addiction is serious. You can (and should) get help before it completely takes over your life.

I don’t know what treatment would be best.

Have you tried getting help before? If so, it’s time to follow the science. The most effective process involves detox, rehab and outpatient treatments.

Don’t be overwhelmed! All you have to do now is call to talk about where you’re at. You’ll take it one step at a time from there. Before you know it, you’ll be sober. You can do this!

I can’t convince my loved one to go.

Even if you’re feeling powerless, there’s always hope! Donny, our dedicated ARISE interventionist, can talk to you today about your options. Following his advice, three of every four people come directly to treatment.

I'm not sure if you can help.

Feelings of doubt and helplessness are part of addiction, but you can find hope here. Our treatment is backed by research partnerships with two universities and hundreds of online reviews. From the Washington Post to CNN to Vice News, our expertise is trusted by the top news sources, as well as professional athletes.

The fact is — thousands of people across the country are living sober, productive lives after their time here. You deserve the same chance.

Now is not a good time.

You may worry about missing out on family or work, but the truth is you’re missing out now when your thoughts are preoccupied on your next fix or you’re too sick or high to show up.

Your job is guaranteed by law. And, your spouse, parents and kids all need you sober.

I have more questions.

It’s normal to have tons of questions, especially about your specific situation, insurance or how it all works. Why not get your questions answered now?

Let's talk through this together.
