|“I was at my lowest point, feeling hopeless, deeply depressed and mourning the end of my marriage and loss of my partner. I was using alcohol to treat my anxiety and sadness and became dependent. This dependence started to take its toll on my life in a negative way. I no longer recognized myself. The best phone call I ever made was calling Dr. Aviva. It saved my life. Life changing.”
|“Primarily, my opiate addiction. I was heavily dependent on oxycodone and taking opiates at an increasing rate. I was also abusing a variety of other substances including Adderall (prescribed), cocaine, acid, alcohol, marijuana - really anything I could get my hands on. Though apprehensive, I voluntarily entered Dr. Avivas outpatient detox and follow-up program. Detox was like coming out of a dense fog and rediscovering my true self. Thirty days in, friends and family noticed a change both in disposition and appearance. I was thinking more clearly and communicating better. Color returned to my face and I no longer looked cadaverous. I felt more like myself; I was "there" again.”

|“Needed help coping with life after drinking. I had another relapse and was ready to try something besides just 12 step meetings. Dr. F has been instrumental in my recovery. I feel so much less shame and less of a stigma from being an alcoholic and addict. When I visit her, I feel like we're just discussing a condition that I have and ways to treat it. And I always leave feeling better.”
