Cumberland Heights Reviews from our Social Media Page

Our mission everyday is to transform lives, giving hope and healing to those affected by drugs and alcohol. We measure our success on the satisfaction, health and long-term recovery of our patients. Hearing the feedback and real reviews of others is what keeps us striving to deliver the highest care of addiction treatment possible.

Dating back over 50 years to our co-founders initial vision for a treatment center, “We want to have a location and a program which will enable a man to go back to the primary meanings of his life so he can start over again.” If you’ve been to Cumberland Heights or know a loved one who has, we’d love to hear from you too!

I truly believe in Cumberland Heights and I will forever be grateful for all that I have learned and continue to learn in regards to my addiction. Great staff who are very caring and understanding. I just can’t say enough about my experience except Thank you for saving my life.

It was comforting to be welcomed in and for once be told that everything would be okay and I would get through this. As of this writing I am 9 months sober and still get calls and attend events sponsored by Cumberland Heights that help me focus on my lifelong recovery.

The fact that all staff fully understood addiction through personal experience and seemingly great training and education [are the things that made me feel good about Cumberland Heights]. The spirit among recovery here is incredible.

A thorough walk through the steps, committed staff, an opportunity to experience sober fun, and an introduction to the program are the things that made the Youth Extended Care Program a positive experience for me.

Cumberland Heights is amazing! I can’t thank them enough for what they did for my son. He has found his happiness again! The facility is beautiful and the food is delicious. I have no negative things to say and would recommend them for anyone looking for treatment.
