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 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 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.
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.
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 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.
