Just a quick note to begin to express our thanks for your care and compassion with our daughter. As you know, she arrived at the facility last week. Everyone was so very welcoming and kind and put Emily at ease, right away. I also appreciated (as her mom) the opportunity to meet with the staff and allay a bit of my fear re: the upcoming detox for Emily. I am backing home in Washington, and I look forward to Emily’s recovery from the methadone addiction. We have heard from her and she seems to indicate that she is doing well and receiving wonderful care from all of you. Thanks again for helping us to begin the path down this long and difficult road.
Your staff and facility have meant the world to me. Everyone made me feel so comfortable and welcomed, like I belonged here. I was petrified coming here because it was my first detox; but I immediately felt comfortable. When I was scared or upset – techs would sit down and talk to me. Also, the other patients would talk to me and comfort me as much as possible. I am sad to leave here tomorrow because it is such a wonderful atmosphere and I have bonded with so many people, staff and other patients.
I know that I am 100% blessed to have been able to come here and get help and anyone who comes back is blessed as well.
Hi to all the staff at Summer House and Burt. I wanted to let everyone know that I am still doing great and I will have a year in June. After I got out of the orchid I came back to Melbourne and enrolled in school, and my major is nursing. I have been able to work part time and to school full time with the help of my family. I have made the dean list and have a 4.0 GPA which I never thought was possible. My little girl is going to be 2 in July which I cannot believe how fast time flies. I really hope all of you know how much it means to me that you guys never game up on me, and never turned me away. All of you have touched me in different ways and I will carry that with me through life. I just wanted to send a big thank you and I miss all of you. I will keep in touch and will hopefully come down soon. Thanks again and I know you will keep touching lives like you have touched mine. THANKS.
First let me say. I don’t know where you came from. I think perhaps from somewhere near heaven’s doorstep. Surely you have invisible wings. It hank you from the bottom of my heart for all the care, advice, wisdom, concern, patience, direction and so much more. That you gave to Leslie. My little broken winged bird. Thomas, the family, and myself are so grateful to you. I know in my heart that you have left a permanent positive mark in leslies spirit.
Summer house was leslies first step into wellness. You will always be a special place in her heart and in ours. I thank you for taking the time to care and share in leslies life. Thank you so very very much for all you did for leslie.
Summer House, I want to thank every one of you for the help, the kindness, and respect. I can not ever say enough good things about all of you! Just when I thought that I was hopeless I found you. Right now I am clean and I owe that all to the Summerhouse. I will pray every night for ally our souls, I thank you will all my heart.
P.S. Thank you Steve for your word’s of wisdom, and your kindness. I’ll keep them with me forever.

You wall keep up the awesome job, you are doing and again I’m going to miss you. I love you guys.
I would highly recommend summer house to anyone in need of help.
Hello, my name is Madeline. I just left your facility, and never in my life and I am 53 years old have had my heart filled with so much love and affection. I cry as I write this because my experience there was truly the best experience in my life. First, I was met at the airport by a man Sam, I looked at him and thought- WOW, and he is older than me. At first, I was scared to come to summer house. But I talked with Sam and he gave me such inspiration and hope, I knew I was going to the right place. He is a wonderful human being and I will always love him for that.
Then I came to the facility feeling nervous. I immediately met with Donna. What a person, she made me feel so welcome and like I knew here all my life. She made me laugh- she is truly needed at your facility. Don’t know how you found her but she is worth a million bucks, her I truly love. Then I met Frankie boy (I called him that). Immediately, he started cracking jokes and thought I was still skeptical, got settled in and felt at home. I went on the patio, had a drink and cigarettes, and there were people like me there, struggling like me and so open and friendly. The nurse staff (never got names) but all were so kind and wonderful.
The techs, I can remember all names, but Brandon-I loved him to death, Arthur I loved-hi, Chris and Mile I loved to death. But no one did anything but be so kind to me. You have no idea how lucky you are to have those people. Those people deserve a salary of $5000.00 a week, if I was rich enough to be their employer.
But let me say, and I should have said it first, is Asim and Burt. I originally made contact with them by phone. If it weren’t for their answering my email and phone calls I would have never came. Frances another one who answered the phone in a caring matter. Not at any time did Burt or Asiam not return a phone call or email. They handled my insurance, talked to me reassuring how the program worked, which I found hard to believe. But it was exactly like they told me. I feel some fatigue and back pain because I do have a bad back, but I am taking Alive for that.
When I left, I cried and cried, because I felt like my heart was tore out, again, I never felt so good in all my life at your facility.
I am now passing out your facility to other friends in situations like me. If they don’t go to summer house, I can no longer be their friend. I don’t think I ever met your owner, but you are truly going to heaven. And as far as your staff, you have no clue as to how wonderful and caring they are.
Again i deeply love you all. Please let all the staff read this!
I want to express my deepest thanks and gratitude for how you helped wack me through one of the hardest battles of my life. It has been a journey of tears, pain, insomnia, anxiety, and a stay at an indignant psych hospital. Your steady hand, nursing integrity, and (most of all) your TLC helped me get to the other side. My joy is returning and I am smiling again. I will never forget you and all you do for me. I will call you and let you know how I am doing- I hope we meet again (NOT AT SUMMERHOUSE). With
