TRUST RAY! We wasted a year trying to “fix/solve” our son’s addiction by rescuing and enabling. Our home became his battleground and our family suffered immeasurably. Today, my son is in a treatment center learning the tools for a life of sobriety.
Ray’s knowledge, support and expertise of drug addiction were indispensable in securing my son help. He listened to our concerns and fears and counseled us thru the most difficult heart wrenching decisions. My son refused our help at the intervention. At such a critical moment where emotions were overwhelming, Ray had mentally prepared us for the “what if he says no” next step. We immediately filed the petition for the Marchman Act.
Ray educated us on all the tools we had available to get our son help. His continuous support, counseling and steady guidance allowed us to succeed in getting my son the help he so desperately needed. His involvement did not end with my son entering the treatment center. Three months later, he continues to actively follow my son’s progress and be available to us at all times. We are grateful and thankful to Ray and highly recommend him. TRUST RAY!
My family and I went to Mr. Estefania looking for help for my son's addiction and inability to move forward in his life. Ray helped us understand addiction, the impact on our family and our enabling behaviors. He guided us through the steps needed to get my son help. We are grateful for his advise, professionalism and no-nonsense approach. It is a process and a journey. We are all in this together. Ray has found a program to fit my son's needs. We are hopeful where once there was hopelessness.
