Where to start….
My drinking issue had been a problem for many many years…and after many attempts to get sober I finally found myself at VRC…
Now the reasons behind never gaining long term sobriety could be equated to many things. I always had saw myself as “not as bad as others” Or that drinking was my only problem etc. I was the epitome of an alcoholic trying to defend their so called right to drink..
So what changed at VRC, straight forward I got called out….any alcoholic or addict who isn’t looking for recovery don’t worry if they don’t want it they won’t find it…. What it comes down to is I was told that my excuses were a front of not wanting to truly grow up and be a functioning member of society. And they were right. I was finally told the cold hard truth… from their I was given tools by VRC to maintain sobriety..and my sobriety has continued since and my life has flourished!
VRC is the place for any alcoholic who is ready, they provide great staff who make sobriety look attractive, healthy meals and a very safe environment. Rehab is not a ticket to sobriety, yet it is a healthy way to kick start it but you must be willing to to do the work. Thank you Randy, Cam, Taylor and everyone else at VRC

Almost 2 years ago I was totally at a loss for what my next move would be in life. I had become a stranger to myself and to everyone that knew me. One of my last remaining friends helped me to get into Ventura Recovery Center, and I have never looked back. I am not that person anymore. I was scared to change, but it was my only hope. My life slowly started to get better, and now I barely remember that person. VRC gave me the tools to reclaim my life. Thank you to the staff. They loved me when I could not love myself. I am alive today because VRC cared enough to save my life.

Three months in treatment and the transition is amazing. Through experienced and compassionate counselors, therapists, and doctors he has begun a new life. The staff not only treats the addiction, but the person as a whole to feel comfortable, and not isolated. This has been key in binging out the person that was being hidden by this disease. I feel so grateful to say I am now able to help myself and our family heal because of the staff that they have at VRC. Thank you, you are truly saving lives!

This rehab is amazing, a very comfortable detox when I first came in then a smooth transition to sober life where I was able to have the freedoms to find myself and start my life again. I was able to get a job when the time was appropriate for me and my needs. Being here has showed me that living sober can actually be enjoyable. The staff have been in our same position so they can relate and be supportive when you might be in crisis. As with any rehab if you aren’t ready to quit then you’ll find anything negative to say. This place saved my life and my brother’s life. It truly is a great place to start your new life.

I would like to express how wonderful this place is and the people that work there. I’ve had a bad experience before with another recovery center, but this place reassured me that there is hope. Every time I called with a different question that popped up, the person on the other end was so helpful and informative. I will recommend this place to my friends and family if I have to, because they truly do change lives for the better. Thank you VRC.

With the multitude of options in treatment these days it really comes down to finding a facility that truly cares about not only their clients, but equally important, their staff who will be putting in the countless hours of care for the person you love most in this world. Thank you Carl for giving me hope and showing me there are honest and thorough human beings who will give everything they have to help another person have a life. You are a true hero and I can’t repay you for what you have given to me, my friends and, to the world!

I was in the process of looking for a recovery center for my close friend who needed help. Out of all the places I’ve called, Ventura Recovery Center stood out the most. The staff was very informative and supportive with my situation. I highly recommend this place if you are looking to change your life for the best! Wonderful people.
