Imagine graduate Brooke B. poem 6.3.19


As the door opens, a warm inviting light
Bright, colorful art on the wall in sight

An uptown shotgun converted with care
A safe, sacred space for many to share

To grow and heal and figure things out
To see what “a sober lifestyle” is all about

My 10 weeks at Imagine have gone by so fast
The lessons & love in my heart will always last

The patterns on this rug I will never forget
The tears I shed without one regret

I’ve learned to love myself a lil more each day
To look in the mirror & know it’s going to be OK

So as this chapter of my book comes to its end
For those in this circle, we’ll all stay friends

To the staff at Imagine, to the coffee and cashews
To this clean, happy mindset I hope never to lose

Felicia & Chris,

We are beyond grateful for what you have done for our son and our family. You caught a soul before he fell too far and redirected the course of his life. What we are learning about epigenetics is that you have not only impacted our son, but also his future children and their children. You are deeply impacting this world. You are both such inspirations to all those that are fortunate enough to know you.

With deepest gratitude,

Parents of an Imagine alumni

“When I came through the doors of Imagine last year, I looked and felt like the "before" photo in a pet adoption advertisement: Sick, scared, confused, and probably not smelling all that great. I didn't know exactly what I needed, only that I wanted a better life, a healthier, happier one. Soon after, I became Imagine Client #1. No pressure, right? After ten weeks of IOP and eight weeks of outpatient treatment, I felt as though I'd been born again. It's not hard to see why Imagine has chosen a phoenix as its spirit animal and logo, a legendary mythical creature that is continuously born anew from its own ashes. And that's precisely how I feel today, rebuilt from the charred remains of an unhealthy and fearful life, a new and better man, husband, brother, son, and (at least I hope) member of the human race. For the first time in a long time, I have peace, health, and hope, which are no small things. I am, and will always be, eternally grateful for those gifts.

“Imagine, for me is a place where the science of mind meets the heart. That is the cumulative result of everyone’s knowledge, efforts and intentions when they show up, and it is hard to find in programs that offer treatment for substance use disorders.  This brings me to my second point: with high fidelity to a true bio psychosocial and spiritual approach to substance use disorders, Imagine offers treatment, community and advocacy. 

This again, is unique at Imagine and necessary for recovery. I am honored to be working with you all and look forward to 2019 together.”

“So, my time at Imagine was nothing short of Amazing!! Coming out of a 2-month stint in an in-patient rehab in West Palm beach. I was battling an intense cross addiction with benzodiazepines for my extreme anxiety and alcohol. I was still badly broken and needed the extra help to transition back in to society and get my anxiety under control. The staff at Imagine helped me with that. I owe it to August, Keith and Marianna, the clinical social workers, who gave me the tools I needed to deal with my anxiety and the skills to live my life free of substances. I looked forward to the 3 days a week because I was on a schedule and I knew I was going to learn something that I could apply to my new life. The staff at Imagine cared, always asking how your day is going, if you are ok, if anything is bothering you? You need that when you are making the transition into a sober life. I was greeted every morning by Lauren who cared tremendously and by the founders, Felicia and Chris every afternoon. I want to mention everyone because each employee played a critical role in my transition. It felt so good to have people that have been there and understand first-hand what you’re going through. 

I know for a fact I wouldn’t have over 11 months of sobriety without Imagine and their caring staff. This is 5-star rehabilitation. I would recommend Imagine to anyone and everyone who want to get out of the heaviness of addiction, and simply, learn how to live life again. A big thanks to the entire staff at Imagine.

“I came to Imagine after relapsing for the first time after 5 years of sobriety. Not only did they welcome me with open arms, they have become like a family...a family that supports you and helps you, completely void of judgment. One day at a time, I remain sober today. Working with August is transformational. I can visibly track progress with the tools she’s given me to accept myself, love myself, and believe in myself. Lauren at the front desk is so gentle and calming and is always there to help in anyway. Felicia and Chris have completely put a new face to recovery, one that actually works and changes lives.”
