    My experience could not have been better. This is the best rehab facility I have been to and I can say with great hope that it will be the last. The staff could not have been more helpful, the facility is beautiful and comfortable, and the food is delicious. I would recommend Avenues to any patient or family member looking for help for their loved one.


    Thank you Avenues Recovery (Lake Ariel) Staff for everything! 30 days is a short stay on the journey of recovery but, speaking from experience, the amount of treatment I received could not be duplicated by another treatment center. The counselors are all kind, compassionate and caring. Thank you Jeff for personally taking time out of your day to talk to me as well as helping the entire community with advice, keeping everyone comfortable during our stay. I cannot put into words the amount of GRATITUDE I have for everyone at Avenues Lake Ariel. Clinical Director Mr. Marc Boriosi, thank you so much for everything. Your personal interest in every single patient here speaks for itself. In 30 days I feel like I made a friend for life. My fiancée and I will NEVER forget everything you have done for us!
