Whiteside Manor Patient Testimonials
Whiteside Manor offers several drug and alcohol treatment programs to help you or your loved ones in recovering from addiction. Our programs are designed to get our clients back into leading a healthy and natural lifestyle without the presence of drugs or alcohol.
Initially, upon entering Whiteside Manor my goal was to get clean and sober. I never dreamt that this program would steer me to a life beyond my wildest dreams. With eternal gratitude!

I never thought the morning meditation walk would mean something to me. I still do it. - Ryan
I thankfully fell into an early morning meeting that rocks, and I'm hitting ten meetings a week. I have to say that things are better than ever, and I thank you for helping me to that end.
I really do feel that Whiteside is a very special place. Further I feel that I have been given a second chance at a life I never dreamed of. I have been coming out to visit and talk to the guys when I attend the 7PM Wednesday Men's Stag I fell into there. I am indebted to you and Whiteside. I have a bit of a business mind, and I'm amazed at the way the gears mesh. Ciao, Kevin 12/09
We certainly have full days. Food's great! - Scotty
Whiteside Manor offers the best overall program! I should know after six other programs. (I should write a book on recovery.) - Lyle
Staff is always available. Debbi was real cool to me on the phone before I checked in. - Keith
Just wanted to let you guys know you are awesome. I thank God for this program. I was part of Sammon House in '99 and Tina Doty was in charge of that house at the time. My counselor was Delores and I have never looked back. These are just a few of the awesome people who helped make a difference but I'm successful because I was willing to participate in my recovery. I was teachable, therefore I was reachable. God Bless you Ron, for opening up Whitside Manor and all of your other houses. Too bad you guys no longer take parolees. I was on at the time. First and last time in prison or jail. I give credit to God, myself, and to you guys and your wonderful program. May God continue to bless you all. Kandice 3/2010
I entered this program in September of 1999. I have been clean since. It took courage for me to say I needed help. I thank you for being a part of my sobriety and guiding me to becoming the person I am today. Then you would have known me as Stacey xxxxxxxx. I now have a husband of 9 years and 4 beautiful children. I am currently going to school to become an elementary school teacher. I just would like to say thank you. Stacey.
It was a sad day when Lucky (the cat) died. She was 16 and bossed all of us around. - Bobby
I lived an incredible sober life for 22 years. Lost my sobriety via pain pills and didnít know how close I was to losing everything or dying. I spent $20,000 was loaded again in 30 days. I hit bottom and knew of Whitesideís reputation. Itís not about the money there. The staff is incredible. My life is better than ever. I love the place and miss it!
I had the means to go anywhere, so a $50,000 rehab was not out of the question. Funny how a place that cost so little gave me so much. I canít put a price tag on the quality, variety, warmth of the staff, and fellowship. I go back and visit because I miss Whiteside Manor and the fun. Ė Kevin D. December 2009
Gloria at Family Program really impressed my parents. (and they don't charge for it!!!) - Sandi
Joy taught me an entirely new way to deal with stress. I really owe her! - Billy Jean
I have been in circuit training class for one week and I already sleep better. I think I will stick with it after I graduate. - Ron
The intake staff is great. Debbi talked to me forever on the phone. She actually gave me some hope I could do this program. - Janet
Before entering Whiteside, I had been through four other programs, including the famous one in Palm Springs. Whiteside turned my thinking around. - Randy
I arrived to Whiteside Manor a confused, angry Native American man. I was treated with respect and caring. My case manager recognized my need to reconnect with my traditional beliefs. I was encouraged to combine my traditional teachings with those of the twelve step program. the staff is very respectful of the unique needs of the native american clients and is willing to tailor a treatment plan to address those needs. while at Whiteside Manor an integral part of the program to assist Native American clients with culturally relevant groups was the late Charlie Narcomy. i am grateful to the staff of Whiteside Manor for the life changing opportunity that was given to me. Thank You Whiteside Manor. Ron P.
The best program I have ever monitored. - Don Jones
State Peer Monitor
Compared to other programs, this place is like a country club. The food is great, we exercise and go to the gym. They really believe in dealing with issues in addition to recovery. - Glenn
I have hooked back up with my family, who wouldn't even take my calls before I came in. This was my third program. I had burned every bridge and conned everyone I knew. They convinced my family to get involved my second week in treatment. Gloria is the best ever family counselor. - Marci
Whiteside's State Monitor told us we were lucky to be in here. I now believe him. - Rocky
I have seen Whiteside keep a client whose insurance had run out. He wasn't ready to leave. I guess that really shows they care more about the clients than the money. - Greg
I was most grateful they have seperate facilities for men and women. It's too hard to concentrate with women around, I keep falling in love too soon. - Mike
The programs are in really nice mansion-like homes. I was in charge of the pets. That probably kept me there the first few weeks. - Lucy
I tried and tried to get over on my counselor. Linzy is impossible to fool. He probably saved my life. - Harold
I still can't believe they have an actual chef (Mike is great) and do a lot of fun stuff every Friday. I actually got into going to the gym. - Matt
Whiteside has a high treatment success rate (Dual Diagnosis) and provides extensive follow-up with clients who have graduated from their program. - C. Blatt
