My experience at Hillside was wonderful and I thank them for helping me get back on my feet. The staff were all very nice, approachable, knowledgable and dedicated. I especially liked the various groups we had with different therapists, counselors and fellow alcoholic/addicts. I enjoyed learning and practicing mindfulness, meditation, stress-reduction, and the AA-related groups. I received quite a bit of coaching and advice relating to personal matters that were going on while I was at Hillside and it was invaluable. The staff really did their best to help me through each scenario from employment issues to an apartment issue that I had going. I am most thankful. The people, the location, the atmosphere are all top notch. Some of the other clients weren't serious about recovery but that's expected at any recovery facility.

I am so grateful for the professional and personal care that my son experienced here. The staff met his needs beginning with where he was in a state of crisis, to discharging a person who had new insights into themselves and their life goals. Our family was included in the healing process. I got my son back! The small, personalized experience and caring staff are outstanding.
