Drug Treatment Success Stories & Testimonials

I am writing to express my heart-felt gratitude to the Betty Ford Center for recently referring me to Mark Gladden of Present Moments Recovery for emergency help for my son Edward.  Mark’s support, knowledge, compassion and commitment have truly been outstanding, and more than I could have hoped for.

I was trying to help my incapacitated son in San Diego by long-distance from Denver –extremely challenging & frightening.  Mark Gladden was the only one who answered the phone. And it truly seemed thanks to Angels.

On the spot, Mark took time to patiently listen & ask excellent questions, then offered immediate detox services at his facility. Then–the real miracle–he offered to personally drive to Edward’s home in San Diego (where Edward lives alone), pick him up and bring him back to safely begin the detox.  I can’t begin to express how much that meant to me.  Frankly. I shudder to think WHAT would have happened without Mark.

During the detox days, Mark continued to stay in communication with me and made sure I was able to talk with both Edward and his counselor a few days later when Edward was planning his next steps.  After the detox was completed Mark also took another staff person with Edward back to Edward’s home and helped clean up the wrecked interior for two and a half hours, leaving Edward in a restored environment.

All in all, I am incredibly grateful our family has been able to benefit from Mark’s guidance, and his commitment to support our dear Edward, dealing with the agony and danger of addiction.  Mark really stood by us, even as our need for help stretched on.

It is my utmost delight and pleasure to recommend Mark Gladden to ANYONE seeking similar services and support, in any addiction situation. He has been a  true Blessing to all involved.

And THANK YOU most sincerely again to Betty Ford for that initial referral to Mark on a busy holiday weekend night. I know it saved my son’s life. And saved his family from unspeakable loss the rest of our lives.

Present Moments helped me begin a new life. I was a hopeless alcoholic and addict when I arrived there. I’ve had some learning to do since leaving rehab but after gaining the knowledge and tools from there, I have an absolutely amazing life now in the program. If you’re hopeless and feel like your life is over, you’re exactly where you need to be if here or in the program. Don’t ever give up! I’m forever indebted to Present Moments and A.A! Stay soberlicious people!

For now, as I’m still a client in Mark, Amy and their team’s care, I can honestly say I could not have have found a better group to guide me through perhaps the most difficult period in my adult life. From the beginning to today, 8 months and 3 levels of care later, it has been what I needed, when I needed it. That hasn’t always been easy to say or accept in many of the challenging moments of honest self-searching, but looking back, it’s the truth. Things do often happen for a reason, and I couldn’t be more grateful that some thing or some one far bigger than me, found a reason for me to here.
