Here Are Some Nice Things Our Patients Have Written
At Fairwinds Treatment Center we strive to provide top level care in treating our patients as our own family. As a result, we receive great feedback from our patients. Please read below to see what some of our past clients have to say about their stay at our facility.
“Thank you so much for the compassion you showed to me during my stay at Fairwinds. Everyone should be commended on the wonderful treatment they provide to all the patients. I know that we can always be a handful but your composure did not waiver. Thanks to the entire staff for being understanding and patient. Without that I may have not make it through the program. Thanks again & Kudos to a job well done!”
“Thank you ALL for being so great to me, I will miss everyone! The therapy was great, the facility was super clean, food was amazing, and every last one of you enjoyed your job and helped so much. I will miss you…”
“To the Nursing Staff: You all work so hard, I think many don’t see it. Not only are you ensuring our medical safety, you are all always there to lend an ear and help in any way. I will miss all of you. Thank you all for everything you helped me with. I was blessed with an excellent staff to help care for me.”
“You all are awesome, the therapists, the doctors, but the nurses take the best care to ensure all of the patients do well. Thank you seems so small compared to the tremendous job and encouragement I received from all of you.”
“To Dr. Berkus, Susan, Kourtney, Kathleen and staff at Fairwinds: Thank you for all your guidance and support this summer. It has had a tremendous impact on my life. To Everyone at Fairwinds: Thank you for all you have given me this past year.”
“I have met some wonderful people during this journey, but I must tell you how comfortable and supportive you have made me feel. You were always there to listen and give great support and advice. I’m lucky to have you as part of my treatment team and I thank you for everything! I’m truly going to miss you, but I know you’ll be at Fairwinds helping others just like you helped me.”
“You have helped me along my journey in treatment. The first time I was here, you would sit with me as I balled my eyes out. You made me say “I’m worth it,” after every meal, and wouldn’t let me leave the table until I said it like I believed it. Well, it did kick in at some poing along the way. You push me everyday to do more and more and make sure I’m giving treatment all my effort and doing all I can. You still sit with me while I cry and listen to all I have to say, and try your best to give me all the feedback and support you can.”
“You’ve contributed a lot to my recovery, this opportunity has changed my life completely. You have always been such a great nurse to all of us. You do your job right and enforce rules, but at the same time you actually care and want to get to know us, which makes us all feel important. In the beginning, everyone needs that, especially me. I came into Fairwinds feeling worthless, hopeless, severely depressed, but through treatment I really did get back to myself and identity.”
“Thank you for all your support while I was here. I know that you cared and were concerned about my health/treatment, as you were with the other patients. I appreciate all of your efforts and how you took the time to help me out, talk, and learn about eating disorders. You made a strong impression on me while I was here. I’ll miss you.”
“Your optimism amazes me and encourages me that things can turn out better than I think. You really helped me nad you had the biggest impact on me, since I’ve been at Fairwinds. I look at you and know I can overcome anything, even though I’m stuck in a scared phase. I have been terrified, but like you said, “one day at a time.” Thank you for being there and being someone I can come to when I feel like everything is falling apart and I lose hope.”
“First and foremost, I am writing this letter to thank you for the excellent care that received at Fairwinds. After a long and difficult struggle with prescription benzo addiction, I feel that I have finally climbed the mountain and won. Of course, the struggle will always continue, but I can honestly say that I feel great. My business is thriving, and I feel that I have recovered my former self. I have been clean now for 14 months and while I sometimes miss having a drink or two in a social setting, I feel very comfortable with abstaining. And as far as benzos are concerned, I have no desire to go down that slippery slope again.”
“Over the past 12 weeks, you have become a significant part of my recovery. I want you to know how important you’ve become to me, and how thankful I am to have gotten close to you. You have helped me more than you know… helping me maintain a strong recovery as I confronted my eating disorder. In doing so, I surrendered to both, and the gifts so far are priceless.
My connection with my Higher Power grows as I turn my will and my life over on a daily basis, one day at a time. I believe all of you have been in my life for a reason, I consider you all a blessing.
Thank you for everything you’ve done and for always being there for me. I am so incredibly grateful. I will miss you all so much. I promise to keep in touch. Your kind words have left lasting imprints on my heart that I will never forget.”
“Though not my therapist, your leadership and guidance in group meetings had a huge impact. It’s bittersweet to leave because all of you will be missed. I feel excitement though to start my life outside these walls. A.A. here I come! Life is not always a bed of roses, but those times will not be filled with alcohol. I want to continue to feel this good!”
“Thank you so much for taking time out of your days to listen to me genuinely and not beat around the bush! You really were the catalyst in my recovery. You helped me find so many answers that I’ve been searching for, for 29 years, and taught me how to find them within myself. You will always be in my heart.”
“I am so grateful to each and every one here, you each take time and have patience with every patient here. I felt like I have known each of you for so long. You all take time out for anyone who needs a little attention. I learned something from all of you. Without your kindness, patience and humanity, I’m not sure I could have made it through this! Thank you Fairwinds! I will never forget any of you!
