Ray Estefania is a first-class professional. We came to him when we were very worried about our daughter and he helped us with an intervention . He and his colleague Ana Moreno combined their knowledge of a customary approach with great flexibility in listening to what our daughter needed and how she was willing to participate. He offered us excellent guidance during a tough period when we were worried and unknowledgeable about how to proceed. We cannot say enough about his professionalism and kindness in dealing with us and our daughter who has gone on to do serious and productive work over the last year, coming to terms with many of her issues.
I would like to share with those whose family has been affected by the disease of addiction. Our daughter was seventeen at the time, she is now twenty-seven.
Over the years whenever a crisis manifested itself, as promised, Ray has been there for guidance. Understanding that we are dealing with a disease, not a weakness, introducing us to the various support groups, always providing us with articles explaining the nature of this disease, giving us the resources to deal with our daughter's immediate needs when they manifested, and most importantly, being at our side as we made decisions when crisis manifested itself are just some of the reasons we are filled with gratitude.
The disease of addiction is said to be a family disease. In other words, it affects the entire family. This can be very tiring and stressful. Ray has always without hesitation helped in so many ways get our family through each crisis. I can not even imagine what the journey would look like without his guidance over the last ten years. His professionalism , his understanding, his direction has enabled us to remain hopeful and strong. And also, given our daughter an opportunity to be the beautiful person she was meant to be.
We are still a family, our daughter is alive and sober, and hope remains strong in our hearts. Thank you Ray.
