If you are reading this you need Ray Estefania, he is the real deal. He is beyond competent, knowledgeable, and professional - he is truly gifted in the area of addiction treatment and intervention. Ray navigated our family through the most difficult time of our lives. When we retained him we had no idea how to handle our situation. Ray knew how to talk to our loved one who was very resistant to getting treatment, helped us set boundaries, and steered us to rehab facilities he personally vetted. He was available at every crisis/relapse and worked hard to find the best fit for our loved one, who has both mental health and addiction issues. After placement he routinely followed up with the rehab providers so he was able to anticipate and plan our next step when needed, i.e. avert a crisis. Recovery is a bumpy road and there are a lot of well-intentioned but subpar providers on the internet. You can't put a price on having an ally with Ray's integrity and experience to guide you to the right place. He has an uncommon talent for cutting through the b___sh*t. Ray cares and listens to you (even if you are rambling) and does not sugar-coat things and tell you everything will be fine - sometimes it won't be fine. But with Ray at your side you can be confident that you are doing the absolute best you can for your loved one. We are so grateful for his help and whole-heartedly recommend him for anyone who is searching for a roadmap to recovery - you will not find anyone better.
