The therapy at Ambrosia has changed my opinion on therapy overall. Without their help, I would've never talked about the things that I was able to start working through while I was here. It's a supportive environment with the structure needed to heal and grow as a person. This experience helped me get in touch with who I am outside of being an addict.
Ambrosia changed my sister's life. That's not an exaggeration. She had been to several other facilities, with little, short-lived success, but Ambrosia was the only one that kept her sober for over a year now. She's a whole new person!
Everyone was so supportive. I was scared when I came in, but the therapists brought a lot out of me. All the exercises and classes on how to prevent relapse have been life changing. This never would have happened if I didn't come here!
I knew I made the right decision as soon as I settled in. Moving away from my home up north was uncomfortable, but Ambrosia made me feel welcome and cared about. I've never seen a treatment center where the counselors care as much as these ones do.
I constantly wonder if I'm doing enough, if I'm saying the right things. There's a weight of guilt and worry that I carry around, though I have a hard time letting go of the anger and resentment too. It's a struggle, but Ambrosia is there for me 24/7. They have been life-changing for both me and my sister’s recovery.

Brenda has seen it all in her thirty years of experience as an alcohol, drug and mental health therapist. She maintains five industry certifications that require her to upload the highest national, international and Florida-specific standards.
