Alta Mira saved my life. After years of destruction to my mind and body, I was able to eliminate all chemicals and shed the guilt and shame. I am leaving her with a new found passion for life and will forever be indebted.
The level of expertise at Alta Mira is impeccable in every single area of the situation. Every single staff member was a part of my journey to recovery.
I am eternally grateful to Alta Mira for the kindness they have shown me. I recommend this facility highly.
Alta Mira helped me deal with a very difficult and painful time in my life. It is a place that helped me tap into that place in me that said “I can” instead of “I can’t.
I feel that I am beginning a new life, which I could not have done without the Alta Mira staff. I am very proud of myself doing the work that I did. Even though English is my second language, they helped me to understand.
Alta Mira is a place of safety and enlightenment.
The program at Alta Mira was customized to my specific needs and nurtured me from the inside out. I was treated with respect and dignity but also with compassion and genuine care during this difficult time in my life. I am forever grateful to getting back my life and sobriety.
The staff and residents make the Alta Mira experience what it is. The relationships you develop in such a short time are both beneficial and inspirational. They really foster a tight-knit community that makes healing that much easier.
I used to chuckle when I heard someone joke about ‘Alta Miracles’. Little did I know I was already living my own. The staff of Alta Mira have saved my life. I will forever hold them, and the men and women I shared my recovery with, in my heart.
Alta Mira brought together and clarified my concept of addiction and how to conquer it.
A truly life-changing experience in a caring and idyllic environment.
My therapist helped me in the early and most important stage of cultivating healthy mental attitudes and behaviors. She is the best therapist I’ve ever had and I wish to continue seeing her on the outside. In 45 days, I’ve learned effective tools to wade through most complex and painful relationships. She also taught me to breathe in a particularly calming way, which has become the basis of my meditation practice.
Working with my therapist proved to be an exceptional experience. As my mental state changed so did the nature of our sessions. His kindness and patience offered a very safe environment in which to do our work.
By far, the psychological testing was one of the most important parts of my stay here. This was key to me staying longer and I was very happy that I did.
I think it was the variety of approaches made available in order to conceptualize and address my anxiety and depression—through great psychiatric care, therapy and spiritual work, and cognitive/testing work. I found each helpful in its own way and I fell I will use all of them after discharge.
Everyone from the admissions staff to the nursing staff were very helpful. I wasn’t in the best shape when I arrived and everyone took care of me.
