    Invictus Woods is more than my words can describe. My son has been an addict of almost 10 years. After many attempts to keep him sober we knew he would die if we did not find something different other than rehab. to help our son, After treatment was almost ending we found out about Invictus Woods.
    Our son has thrived and been sober longer than he ever has. He found faith, family but most of all himself. The staff at Invictus were amazing. Returning calls promptly, answered any concerns we had and most of all provided our son with more than anyone else has, HOPE.
    Being a parent to worry if any facility you take your child to will work, it is up to the addict, but Invictus and the staff provided him with what he needed to get there. Rides to appointments, meetings and finding himself again. Becoming the adult, independent person he needed to be at age 26. My son never complained or said anyone treated him bad in any way. He always said how much he liked the place and giving him support to stay sober. PLEASE if you child or family member needs help, Call Invictus Woods. you will never regret keeping your loved one alive. Thanks again to all at Invictus. I can never repay what you have given our family back. OUR SON. God Bless
