As soon as I stepped through the doors of acqua I was welcomed into a family - I was treated with dignity and respect. It was the first time in a while I felt like I belonged, which helped me take an honest look at myself. I learned how to love myself again and for that, I am forever grateful.
The therapists at acqua took the time to facilitate sessions with me and my husband. I learned how to support him and take care of myself at the same time. When my husband first began treatment, I couldn’t have imagined reconnecting with the man I fell in love with when we first met.
Acqua kept me moving physically, spiritually, and mentally. It brought me diversity of thought and greater personal interaction. The facility is very conducive to healing. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of it. It was EXCELLENT!!! I will miss the compassion felt from staff.
AMAZING! The facility was nothing like other rehabs. The food is amazing and everything else was perfect. Acqua Recovery is like a sanctuary and the whole environment is to die for! This place totally turned my life around and I've never been happier.
The whole experience was so much more than expected. All the staff were caring and interested in my recovery. I loved the diverse curriculum. My therapists were amazing. The food, people and program were all great. I highly recommend Acqua and will always be grateful for their compassion.
Acqua is a safe, beautiful sanctuary that paid attention to my needs and went above and beyond to help me achieve my goals. Thank you for helping me get back to my normal self. I wouldn't change a thing at Acqua. I loved my time here...a lot of healing took place.
I couldn’t have imagined the accommodations being so comfortable. At acqua, it was like staying at a high end resort…best sleep I’ve had in years. The fireplace and garden tub in my room were nice touches.
Acqua is peaceful and creates a real sense of community, unity, and love. I feel a lot of hope leaving here. All the groups and activities were impactful. Acqua provided so many life changing experiences - thank you!!!
I would describe Acqua recovery to a friend as a really great treatment center in an absolutely beautiful setting. The staff is caring, the program seems to be truly set up for our benefit. Overall the rules that are in place seem to be there for recovery and what we are taught is varied and extensive.
Residential treatment at Acqua Recovery provides helpful structure, continuous community, attentive care, and professional support. It's one of the best environments to change your life from the inside out and incorporate healthy habits with relatable people.
