Schick Shadel Hospital drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs have helped more than 65,000 people regain their lives.
Here is what former patients are saying:
Spending more than 40 years in the entertainment business allowed me to meet many talented people. It wasn’t long before I saw alcohol and drugs cut so many great musical careers short. It almost seemed that those great, creative minds were more susceptible to addiction. I, too, found a day where alcohol was about to take its toll! Fortunately, I came to Schick Shadel Hospital and 20 years later… I am as healthy and happy as ever. It’s absolutely true when they say: “Give us 10 days, we’ll give you back your life.

I knew it was time to follow his example. I checked in for treatment one year to the day after Fred treated, and that was 26 years ago. My best friend was clean and sober until he died of melanoma in 2000. I thank Fred and SSH for giving me back my life.
“I gave you 10 days – and you took away my need for alcohol! I’m bringing my life back! Coming up on one year here, and what a blessing to feel and see the holidays alcohol free! From the bottom of my heart… thank you to everyone at Schick!”
Through ‘divine’ intervention, I found Schick Shadel Hospital, and I knew it was the right place for me. My arrival at Schick was the end of my addiction and the beginning of my new life.
Nearly nine years have gone by since my life was controlled by alcohol.Now when I cry, it’s because of a sad movie or a touching story – not tears of guilt or self-pity. It’s now genuine. My life is genuine.
Not only did they take away my cravings for alcohol – Schick did it in just 10 days. I was able to conduct business from the privacy of my room and my life was uninterrupted – but improved - by the Schick treatment method.
After I left treatment, I haven’t had the desire or another drink in 22 years. Now, many people recognize me, not as a drunk, but as a successful community provider.
I can’t thank Schick Shadel Hospital enough for what they have done for me. The treatment there made it so easy to stay away from alcohol – it was unbelievable! My life has totally changed since I treated, and it would have never happened if I hadn't stopped drinking.

I went to Schick Shadel Hospital and in just 10 days, it was like they pressed my “reset button.” I was returned to a life of possibility rather than despair. Thank you, Schick Shadel Hospital.
I am now alcohol-free, and I owe all of my thanks to the caring and professional staff at Schick. I feel good now. My life is back in order, and my confidence and self-esteem have been restored.
From my heart, I’m extremely happy with my decision to treat at Schick Shadel Hospital. Schick’s treatment and dedicated staff helped me to do just that.
Before my treatment at Schick Shadel, I couldn't imagine my life without drinking.In just 10 days, my life was transformed and I have rediscovered how great life can be.
I chose Schick Shadel Hospital because I had friends who treated at traditional programs with little success. I am now sober and I owe it all to the staff and the treatments.

There is not a day that goes by that I don’t count Schick Shadel among the blessings I have had in my life. I was so badly broken by my relapse that I do not feel that I could have found the courage on my own to remain clean

Schick Shadel Hospital was my final hope. It has been since 1984 that I treated, and I’ve not had a drink or a desire to drink since. It was truly like a miracle.
I treated at Schick Shadel Hospital in 1998 and have had no temptation to drink since I left the program. It has given me my life back.
We both treated at Schick Shadel Hospital, and it is the best thing we have ever done. Neither of us has had any cravings. The staff treats you with respect and dignity, and it has changed our lives. I am now the number one sales person in my office, and my husband’s business has quadrupled. We are so thankful.
Former Patients, Joint Testimonial
I treated in 1974 for alcohol and have never, ever come close to having a drink since. Even when times were very tough, I was never tempted to drink.
