"I have been a client of Apple Valley Counseling for six months and would like to share my opinion and experience about this state certified program. Apple Valley’s belief is that alcohol and substance dependency is a progressive disease that affects the whole person, mentally and physically - ever increasing until the bottom of life or death occurs. I came to this clinic as a full blown alcoholic with no intention of living much longer. I was angry, and in denial - the courts were my only motivation at that point. It was the game I had to play to be legal to drink again someday - a sure death. I started with the Intensive Outpatient Program three days a week with Bill and Charlotte. Charlotte would facilitate Tuesdays and Thursdays and Bill would engage us on Wednesday nights. This was a combination of expertise that eventually saved my life. Their focus was wound together with two different approaches. They both promoted a “family atmosphere” that opened a trust among the group which fostered honest healthy interaction. Bill was straight forward with the concepts of building the foundation and the steps to achieve a healthy sobriety. His expectations for us were fair but firm. He always left us with a task to work on or thought-provoking questions to make us think about our recovery. He would start his next session with us by following up on where we left off. This was very good for our group - Bill takes his job seriously. Charlotte, on the other hand, approached us with a silent confidence. Her expectations for us were also demanding. She groomed us for our honesty as we attempted to satisfy our STEPS in a thoughtful way. She always made it clear that our heart and mind needed to blend together to build the necessary strengths to beat the disease. She told us that it was of “upmost importance” to make that connection. Finally, I would like to share that I witnessed a high percentage of our group members “buy in” to the Apple Valley philosophy and were happy they came here for treatment. You have convinced many of us to continue our sobriety by giving us the REAL DEAL. I commend both Bill and Charlotte (and staff) for their professional and sincere support of the needs of people like me. You put your heart into it - and it makes all the difference. Sincerely, Gregg H."
