I work as a nurse and got addicted to opiates I had access to. After attending the Ridge residential (28-day program), I was convinced that 4 weeks of IOP and a year of aftercare was the best way to ensure long-term recovery. I’m still active in my N.A. meetings. I kept my license and got into recovery – I got my life back!Jenny R.
I fought my parents about going to Northland while I was still a college student. I’m glad I went. They were right. I got sober and now have a new job in the field I earned my degree in. Their family program was the best part. It helped to educate my family about the disease I have, while repairing our damaged relationship. Thanks Northland.Angie P.
The most important thing in my life was seeing my grandkids. I had never been treated before Northland, but sure am happy my daughter found this program – and gave me an ultimatum to get sober or no more grandkids. Northland detoxed me first, then took me through almost 3 months of treatment. Most importantly, they treatment me with decency, respect and a friendly smile. I learned a lot.Nancy V.
I had to do IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) since I couldn’t risk getting fired from my sales job [by] going inpatient. I was able to work effectively while in the Northland program, which I found to be a key reason for my recovery.Ben R.
I was very skeptical about switching from one drug (heroin) to another (Suboxone) in the Northland program. It turned out to be a great move. Dr. Stuckert and Northland’s staff educated me about how Suboxone reduces cravings for opiates, but needed to be accompanied by the intensive therapy. I was tapered off the Suboxone and after finishing the Northland program, I’ve been in recovery going on 2 years.Justin N.
After my second DUI, I didn’t want to go to treatment, but I’m glad I found Northland. The education opened my eyes that I needed help. I successfully completed the program, including aftercare, and have not had a drink since.Mary P.
I got my 2nd DUI in 30 years, but I’m only a once a month drinker. My lawyer fought to prove to the court I wasn’t an alcoholic and try to save me from jail time, which would have hurt my small business. Northland got me in immediately. Their assessment found that I didn’t have addiction problems, and my lawyer used Northland’s report to convince the judge that no jail time was needed.Jason W.
I was not in control of my life. I could not stop drinking and was in a deep state of depression. After completing the Northland treatment program I am now 6 months sober.Brian W.
