Alumni Testimonials

Scotty P.

I have learned to protect my heart, guard my mind, and love myself, all of me not just the parts of me with learning to embrace my brokenness. I’m whole, complete, and lacking nothing. I am a man of purpose. Love you, ORC.

Daniel M.

I tried to stop drinking on my own and I could not do it. I had to set my pride aside and ask for help. So, I came to ORC for treatment. My goal was to get the knowledge and tools to stay sober. ORC provided me with that and so much more.

Sara W.

ORC has saved my life in more ways than one. When I arrived at ORC I was an empty shell. I had no self-esteem or self-worth. I was using alcohol to escape the reality of my life. From the first moment I arrived at ORC I was welcomed with open arms. Every single staff member truly cares, and is always there for encouragement, support, and knowledge. They have all gone above and beyond to help me and I will never be able to put into words how incredibly grateful I am. I am leaving a new woman and stronger than ever before. Thank you, ORC, from the bottom of my heart for helping me find myself again.

Kea J.

It’s always so easy to just say we are ok. That feeling inside yourself when you know that’s a lie, now that’s the hard part. Leaving ORC I realized this new journey is not just about my DOC, it’s about my life. Here I gained so much insight and knowledge to help me on my 2nd chance at my only life. Maybe something you don’t want to do turns into the only thing you want to do! Thank you, ORC family.

Allison M.

Thank you to the ORC mental health program for helping me find my voice again.

Becca H.

I had been steadily drinking from the age of 15, and as Christmas approached in my 63rd year I realized how sick I was. ORC drove 3 hours to pick me up, after 6 days of detox I was encouraged to stay through the residential program. I’m glad I did! I look forward to living a real life now!

Scott L.

Thank you, ORC, this place is so special. When I got here, I was only going to stay for detox. I knew after 7 days that I would not make it. I stayed and I am so happy I did. Those people took care of me better than anywhere I have been. These people care about us and for that I am truly grateful for all of you. Thank you for all that you do for us.

Caden V.

This was my 8th time in treatment at 19 and this was the first time I chose to stay for myself. This place showed me what it’s like to fall back in love with life sober. If I can do it, anyone can. I promise there is hope.
