I am very fortunate I found Meridian and not some other treatment center. ( was heading to my first treatment center). The staff and facility was well structured and professional they became like family. Meridian helped me find my underlying issues and how to fix them to stay sober. Yesterday was 1 year with out a drink. I still always think back to what Hotse and the Therapists taught me. Thank you Hotse and rest of the staff at Meridian. Much love

This was my first and only treatment center. This place truly was amazing. I knew within just a few days of being there that they truly cared about you as a person and cared to see you succeed in sobriety. The staff was amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better rehab to start my journey at. I tell people all the time I don’t know if I could have just kept it to one rehab if this wasn’t my first one.

I came to Meridian a scared broken little girl who couldn’t even look a person in the eye. I had never been to treatment before and I had forgotten how to live or contribute to society without drinking and using. I couldn’t hold a job or a relationship with my family or anyone else. This was my first time attending a drug and alcohol treatment program and God blessed me when I was randomly sent to Meridian out of all of the others that are out there. The staff and clinical team actually cared about my wellbeing. I was able to get the 1 on 1 attention that I needed and I was not treated as just a number in a group of people. I was challenged to change my thinking and I gained tools that I am now using to stay sober 2 and a half years later. The owner and the rest of the clinical staff understand that we do not change over night and they WILL NOT give up on anyone for that reason. Meridian has become family to me and I am so grateful for the beautiful life that they have helped me make because if I didn’t end up at this treatment center, I don’t know where I would be.

Meridian Treatment Solutions not only saved my life, they taught me how to live life, and enjoy life clean and sober. The clinical team is outstanding, plus there always available when you need them. The community I lived with became an extended family. Being at Meridian. I learned I wasn't alone with how I feel, there's never any judgement with mistakes made. Groups taught me were all the same, this showed me how to trust again, how to reach out for help. I was taught the first defense against using and my life is totally different, so much better. If you need help reach out to Meridian, it will change your life forever! Francine Dillon

MERIDIAN SAVED MY FAMILY!!! There are few things worse than having your child (or children) become addicted to heroin. The daily lying, stealing and overwhelming worry that they will overdose. The last five years of my life I have faced having two of my children succumb to this insidious disease. But there is hope and there is help! My children and I are grateful to Meridian Treatment Solutions for providing a nurturing environment while teaching not only the steps of recovery, but how to take ownership and responsibility of their lives. My older son who completed 90 days at Meridian is now in recovery 18 months. He is living in a sober living home, holding down a full time job and paying his own bills. So proud of his progress! My daughter has been a heroin addict for 2 ½ years. She has been in and out of out-patient programs without success. I knew she needed more and reached out to Meridian again. My first contact was with a gentleman in admissions. He listened through my tears about my concerns and needs for my daughter. He followed up with me on a regular basis – as I was ready for her recovery long before she was; he continuously assured me that when she was ready they, at Meridian, would be ready for her as well. She is now clean 6 weeks! What a huge transformation in this short time. I am grateful to her therapist who has met with us for family therapy and works closely with my daughter on a daily basis. The other clinicians, medical staff and tech’s are first rate and have been very attentive to all of her needs. Meridian has saved my family & I am forever grateful!!!

Meridian was the most loving and caring recovery environment I’ve every been in. The treatment team knows what they are doing, and their unique approach to addiction makes them stand out and above the other rehabs in south Florida. I gained a family here. Life long friends. Sober friends. I will forever be grateful for Meridian and the way they prepared me for living life in sobriety. 5 stars isn’t enough. I’ve seen so many lives changed here, including mine

Meridian helped save my life! The amount of care and compassion that Hotse and the staff showed me was incredible. I learned so much about myself, my addiction and my behaviors. I was actually able to change my life by changing my thinking and my behaviors. I'm not perfect, and thank goodness that I didn't have to be for Hotse and all of the Meridian Family to love me. T.J. and Melissa are amazing. My therapist Christina was so understanding and loving. Pete is a BHT and is one of the most wonderful people I've ever met in my life. Mark (the clinical director) has the best sense of humor, but is so knowledgeable about addiction and how to overcome it by changing my behavior. Not only did I get sober and am able to stay sober, one day at a time, I also found out that I can have fun and laugh in recovery. I would not be the woman of integrity that I am today without Hotse and my Meridian Family. So give it a chance! It just might save your life!!!

My name is Gina D. and I have been an Alumnus of Meridian Treatment Solutions since June of 2014. I can honestly say, without any doubt whatsoever, that if it wasn’t for Meridian I would not be alive today. They showed me that there was light at the end of the tunnel when I saw only darkness – they gave me hope when I had none. From the moment I stepped into Meridian, until the time that I walked out after completing my program, I knew that I would somehow be OK. The staff at Meridian is top notch and professional starting at the very top with Hotsie and Caren all the way down to the wonderful Techs. The Counselors here are among the best that I have ever seen anywhere. The one-to-one attention that they all give to their clients is unprecedented and something that you simply do not see at any other Treatment Facility anywhere. They truly care about each and every one of their clients and would always go to great lengths in order to assist them in their quest for sobriety. Their facilities are more than adequate and they seem to be constantly expanding to accommodate additional clients. I can literally go on and on listing all of the positive aspects of Meridian Treatment Solutions but I’ll simply stop here and say that they are heads above all the rest! Needless to say, I would highly recommend it to anyone who finds the need for recovery.

Wow where to begin? I came to Meridian for IOP over a year and a half ago it changed my life ~it helped me become the woman I am today. There is no better program in south Florida and if you are trying to get sober and dive in to your recovery then Meridian is the place to go. The facility is one big family and the owners are actually apart of the solution to helping you stay sober. I still cherish the life long friends I met at Meridian and the memories I made here by taking the first step to a new life. Meridian is amazing and I loved it & I promise you will too!

Meridian is a great place with the most caring staff I've ever encountered. I've had my fair share of treatment centers, and I can honestly say hands down the best place I've been to. Coming up on 9 months sober, it is also the longest time I've had away from drugs and alcohol. This place has an effectiveness that is indescribable. The group is small which gave me more of a chance to focus on individual therapy, yet being able to form close relationships with other clients. I'll forever be thankful to everyone who aided in my recovery, and am happy to have been a part of their experience. THANKS to Meridian, and Hotse I've gotten my life back! =)
