Testimonials & Reviews
“Promises was an amazing experience. I gained a lot of knowledge to help me maintain my sobriety, built healthy relationships, and created a path that is destined for success. I recommend this program to anyone who needs help. The staff at promises are helpful, knowledgeable, and very friendly.” – Brian K, Promises Treatment Centers
As treatment centers go, Promises ranks at the top. I have been to a number of facilities and have received the greatest amount of knowledge and tools needed to work a serious program at Promises. They have shown me what it means to be a part of a sober community. The staff is amazing. They found a way to get this stubborn addict motivated and involved in my own treatment. They saved my life.

My experience at promises was one I will never forget. I have tried to get clean and sober many times before and never have I entered a program as educational and supportive as Promises. I was able to surround myself with loving caring staff members that walked me through detox comfortably and were there 24 hours a day for the following process of uncovering and dealing with the underlying issues that helped fuel my disease. I was able to attend twelve step meetings daily and begin meeting and getting to know people in the program in several different areas of Los Angeles and Malibu. The facility was top notch and staff was more than accommodating to each individual’s needs. I enjoyed the different educational groups along with the intense personal and family work that was done at my pace. I appreciated their ability to create a program unique to my and my families needs. I experienced treatment in a different way than I ever had before. I am grateful for the opportunity to receive the tools necessary to not only maintain sobriety but to live a life happier than I ever thought possible. After finishing my time in the first phase of residential I decided to stay for extended care program which was a great transition tool for me with the continued support of the facility and staff. Before leaving treatment my treatment team helped me put together a detailed discharge plan that helped me transition back into the world with ease. They helped me find different places to live, different doctors to see, and all of my daily plans were set before I even stepped out the gate. I appreciate all of the time dedicated by each and every person I came into contact with. I know I can’t do this alone and Promises makes sure that I never have to ever again. They have shown me a new way to live clean and sober. I would send anyone I love and care about to Promises because I know that they would be well taken care of and given the tools and opportunities necessary to save their lives. I can now walk through life a different way and for that I am eternally grateful.

Promises upscale surroundings are easily matched by the excellent quality of its staff. This is an unusual combination- as many recovery centers excel in one or the other- but rarely both. From the initial conversations with the reassuring admissions department, through your initial arrival and subsequent treatment, there is a high level of consistency at all stages of treatment. It is clear the staff members are well trained and experienced. Most importantly, there is a genuine interest and emotional support that permeates this place.
Promises Treatment Centers, July 2012
Promises has been one of, if not the, most meaningful experiences of my life. It has shown me a path to a better life that I could have never imagined. I first arrived feeling lost and desperate and now have a feeling of optimism and a sense of purpose. The staff at Promises is nothing less than phenomenal. They are supportive, dedicated and are never judgemental.

If I had not gone to The Ranch, I probably would not be alive. It has opened me to so many parts of myself previously covered, given me the strength and the desire to stay clean, and helped me begin to trust other people. The Ranch affected me in so many ways that it would be impossible to list them, but needless to say, my three months there are some of the most important ones in my life.

I loved the equine therapy, the surroundings, nature, the respect given and received, the community living, the boundary meetings and “good recovery.” Thank you all. It’s been run, and sad, and happy and everything. Most of all, it’s helped me a great deal.

I went to both Right Step & Next Step for my drug addiction and my experience in both portions of the program was very educational and helpful in my strive to lead a successful and productive sober life. One aspect that I felt I truly benefited from was the staff’s extensive knowledge of addiction itself. Many of them are in recovery as well and that made me want to be more open to hear their insight and guidance rather than if I were to hear it from someone who only studied the disease of addiction.
Jason Mogollon, The Right Step, February 2013
I was admitted for 30 days at The Right Step. I’ve been clean and sober for over 7 months since then. The experience at The Right Step was a new chapter in my life. I discovered so much about myself and about other people’s lives during my stay. Hearing everyone’s stories and processing together in groups is so powerful. I always thought that I had it so bad and no one suffered as much as I did. I quickly realized how ignorant I was. We all shared the same thing, we were powerless over alcohol and all mind altering substances. The staff and counselors were GREAT. They work hard at keeping a cohesive and peaceful environment. I highly recommend anyone who is battling addiction to visit Right Step. I can’t say enough how much better my life is today.
Alumnus, The Right Step, April 2012
I have never been to rehab before… my stay was beyond my expectations and Right Step has given me a solid support system to start my new sober life.
Alumnus, Right Step, 2011
I have been sober for about 4 months now, and Right Step has helped me do it. Great staff, always there to help you when you need it. Friendly environment, even though i still consider myself early in my sobriety I am confident in this program, and I believe that by coming here I have learned some good techniques to help me to continue my sobriety even when situations may come up and I have cravings. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.
Alumnus, Right Step, March 2012
The Recovery Place has been a great experience from start to finish; a place where the staff and my clinician Taryn were extremely helpful, ready and willing to help assist me with any problem I had. With cozy and comfortable apartment style living, The Recovery Place was truly a beautiful place to stay for as long as one needs. Additionally, the weekly grocery shopping trips, while something I had never experienced before, made me feel like I was right at home. I initially arrived for treatment depressed and hating life, yet I am extremely happy to say I was able to leave treatment with a heart full of happiness. I can say without a shadow of a doubt, The Recovery Place has really changed my life and I would recommend it to anyone seeking treatment. No matter where you come from, as I personally came from New Jersey, The Recovery Place can help and truly saves lives. I will forever be glad that I was able to be a part of this treatment center and encourage anyone to stop by and check it out.
Dom C., The Recovery Place, February 2013
Without a doubt, The Recovery Place helped save my life. All of the clinicians there are amazing, especially the Christian clinician Charlotte. During my struggle with substance abuse I was in a deep, dark, dark place and felt hopeless. I had previously come to The Recovery Place but wasn’t willing to take their help at the time. Yet when I tried another treatment facility in between stays at The Recovery Place, I found that no one else offers a program similar to the one they do. So I went back to the Recovery Place, but this time with an open mind and the willingness needed to change my life. You get what you put into this program simply because there is nothing this place doesn’t offer. A few of my favorite aspects are the recovery couches which are incredible; and that it’s flooded with extremely spiritual people, exactly what we as recovering addicts and alcoholics need. This place has undoubtedly helped me save my life and deserves a stellar review; so thank you The Recovery Place!!
Recovery Place Alumnus, The Recovery Place, June 2012
I am one hundred percent confident that I made the right choice when I chose to go to The Recovery Place for help with my substance abuse. Even though this was my first time in treatment, the skills and support I received from the staff have me convinced it will be my last. Each and every one of the clinicians here are knowledgeable and personal. The tech staff is amazingly compassionate, and the medical staff is always on top of their game when it comes to addressing the needs, concerns, and ailments of each individual client. If anyone who is struggling with this horrible disease were to ask me where they should go for help, I wouldn’t hesitate to proudly show them my TRP medallion and give them the phone number to the place that saved my life.
Greg D., The Recovery Place, February 2012
The Recovery Place has been an amazing experience for me. Because of it, I have accomplished goals that I could never have seen myself doing before. This drug rehab program is successful because it works; they give you the tools and you have to work for it. For anyone who is seeking help or wants to be free of his or her struggle with drug or alcohol abuse, The Recovery Place in Fort Lauderdale is the perfect place to go to. If you give the program a chance you will personally see the results and the change yourself, while leaving treatment a new, clean, and better person. Give yourself a chance to be able to wake up every day free from pain and withdrawal; a chance to be able to actually have money in your pocket and bank account instead of burning through it. The Recovery Place can help you make that change and give yourself the chance to start your road to recovery!
Pradell A., The Recovery Place, February 2012
I am very grateful that my first and hopefully last experience in rehab was at Promises Austin. This place is very special and that is because of the staff, surroundings and environment.
Fabulous treatment center! Can’t put into words how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to come here.
