It’s hard to find the words to adequately praise Joseph Hunter and Cycles of Change. Prior to discovering Joe, we had years of bad experiences with several treatment centers for our daughter. It’s hard to know whom you can trust and who has genuine concern for a person’s sobriety or who is just in it for the money.
From my first telephone conversation with Joe (while he was on a family vacation) I knew he was different than the other eleven organizations we had dealt with. My daughter instantly made the same connection with him. Joe genuinely cares for people and makes it his life mission to improve the lives of others.
We are thrilled to say that our daughter has eight months clean and sober and is currently attending school. She is happier than she has been in years. We will be eternally grateful to Joseph Hunter and Cycles of Change.
As the mother of two bright and beautiful 20-something daughters—both of who are drug addicts—I can’t begin to express my gratitude for the care they received and the support I was given at Cycles of Change.
The story of their spiral into addiction is terrifying and heart-wrenching, but today they are both sober and committed to their recovery. I am forever grateful to the staff at Cycles of Change, particularly its founder, Joe Hunter, for offering them the tools they needed to recover.
Joe not only has a brilliant mind and a wealth of knowledge about the disease of addiction, but a genuine caring for his clients that is immediately obvious. He lives the 12 steps of recovery, and preaches them as the most effective way to maintain sobriety.
As a family member, I’ve witnessed Cycles of Changes’ evolution over the past few years. In addition to beautiful new residential and after-care facilities, Cycles has added therapy techniques like role-playing, and placed an emphasis on nutrition and exercise. They also host a free three-day workshop that focuses on family issues that gave me tools to help deal with my daughters’ disease and to live a healthy life myself.
I would encourage anyone seeking treatment for themselves or a loved one to contact Cycles of Change.
A home away from home! The homes are beautiful and comfortable and have everything a beautiful home would have and then some! The staff is warm and friendly which makes the transition a lot easier. COC helped my son through some of the most difficult challenges in his life and helped me better cope with and understand my son’s addiction. When my son was in their care, I was finally able to sleep. Thank you to the entire staff at Cycles of Change.
My husband and I owe our son’s recovery to the Cycles of Change Recovery program. He had been struggling for a long time before he asked for help. The program offered him the skills, motivation and self-esteem to stay sober and hopeful that he could create a healthy, wonderful new life for himself.
The staff as well as the director Joe Hunter are caring and very competent. They are alert to any problems and this creates safety for all who are participating in the program. Because the program takes small numbers it creates a very homey atmosphere. Our son was very withdrawn and depressed. When he arrived there but the group activities taught him social skills and helped him to open up again. The caring tone is set by their director who supports and interact with each person there. The caring extends to the facilities themselves as each home is attractive, comfortable and clean. The staff and numerous others are brought in to provide group activities like yoga, art, music, nutrition exercise. They saved my son’s life and for that I will always be grateful.
