I just received my 1 year coin thanks to Sunspire Health Heartland. I’m disappointed to see poor reviews by previous patients who seem to have forgotten why they were there. We aren’t writing a review for a resort, it’s a residential treatment center full of people who have chosen to dedicate themselves to helping addicts recover. I had dietary needs that were happily met, complaints that were addressed thoroughly and satisfactorily. They environment is serene, the gym is fantastic, and the staff were supportive. A year ago I was at an i describable low. I truly didn’t see a way out and didn’t really care what happened to me. I called Sunspire and he came and picked me up himself! When I read another post bashing him for increasing admissions I had to chuckle...only an addict would think like that. Being one, I know. I’ve learned so much on perspective and how to view things for what they really are. Increasing admissions in a blessing, a gift to those of us suffering in the grip of addiction. He made it possible for more sick people to get help. He made it possible to save more lives and give hope and purpose to those of us who felt we had none. I will never regret my choice to go to Sunspire and I recommend it often, wholeheartedly.
