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 b ehaviors. 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.
We attended a community event that focused on mental health issues seeking an additional frame of reference on resources available in our community and information on mental health issues that could h elp our family better manage our son's substance abuse and co-occurring mental health issues. Raymond Estefania was an expert panelist that evening and his views and comments resonated the overwhelming similarities of the issues are family was dealing with.
Over the years we relied on the guidance of mainstream mental health professionals and were at a loss with the treatment options. My husband and I reached out to Ray for guidance. What we found in Ray was an engaged, thoughtful professional who has thoroughly researched substance abuse and mental health providers, to help us find the right fit for our son and coordinate an intervention. The intervention unfolded in somewhat unusual circumstances and every step of the way, Ray was available to provide us guidance on next steps and coordinated resources to expedite the treatment that was a good match for our son. We are very grateful for Ray's expertise, kindness and no-nonsense manner to develop the right approach in handling this very overwhelming and devastating family crisis. We highly recommend Ray and continue to value his knowledge and guidance.
