    CELLAND GILCHRIST (GIL)CEO
    Gil’s feature from “Experts on what Recovery Looks and Feels Like,” from Christopher Kennedy Lawford’s 2013 bestseller, “Recover to Live: Kick Any Habit, Manage Any Addiction” (p. 292). “From Gil Gilchrist, Chief Executive Officer, New Beginnings at Waverly: Recovery is a lot like enlightenment—most of the people who have excellent recovery, you wouldn’t even know until you spent time with them. They are human beings first and recovering people second. The recovery ideology does not define them, but it’s an integral part of their life. Recovery is not a feeling. It is a state of awareness and reali¬zation. You realize that you are free. No matter how good or bad things get, the fundamental realization is that you are free.”

Awesome Counselors ! Every single one I had had their own personalized way of teaching some great skills for coping and many other aspects of treatment and sobriety whilst keeping you interested because most of the personnel has gone through the same shit you have! I think that’s one of the most helpful aspects of this facility. Better than decent food, 15 minutes in between each group or “lesson”, so if you’re a smoker this is very important so you can squeeze in a quick smoke/Vape and still have enough time to swing by your room to grab or drop something off. - If I ever feel the need again that I’m headed in the wrong direction, I’m headed back here🙂

It was clean. Most of the staff were kind. Lack of any free time to take a nap or rest. It was hard to sleep at night when you had people coming in every hour to check to make sure you were in your room. There was one staff member that gave me the creeps and made me want to start drinking all over again. After 8 years he still creeps me out in my dreams.
