Read responses from referring agencies and clients who have experienced and benefited from Keys' services and treatment programs.
"I refer the majority of my DWI/OWI clients in the St. Martin Parish area to Keys for alcohol/substance abuse evaluation and treatment. Dr. Wilson and his staff have been an integral part in the successful treatment and rehabilitation of my clients. I strongly recommend Keys as a support, service and referral organization, as the services Dr. Wilson and his staff provide are affordable and very beneficial to the people who are in need of such services."

"I would like to begin by congratulating all those who work in the day-to-day grind of the rehabilitation efforts and dedicate their time and energy to such a worthy cause. Dr. Wilson and his staff have provided an excellent outlet for us here at Probation and Parole for referral of our clients with both ordered conditions of supervision or discovered behavioral patterns of substance abuse directly affecting their success in supervision. Our most recent collaboration where we combined both our staffs in a conference setting to discuss mission, process and administrative issues in an attempt to develop and solidify the needs of both agencies and develop a referral system compatible to both Keys and Probation and Parole was very successful. With the implementation of the Re-Entry at all levels it has never been more important for us here at New Iberia District to develop a relationship with providers that culminate into affordable, successful treatment for our clients."

"I am writing this letter to express my personal views regarding the services provided by Keys for Sober Living. I am a chronic alcoholic and have been battling my addiction for the past five years. During this time I have been treated at some of the finest inpatient facilities in the country (Palmetto Addiction Recovery Center in Louisiana, the Menniger Clinic in Kansas and the Farley Center in Virginia), as well as state run inpatient and outpatient programs in Louisiana. In my opinion, the services provided by the staff of Keys are second to none. I have been enrolled in the Keys intensive outpatient program since July of this year and have witnessed firsthand the dedication of the Keys staff to helping those burdened by addiction. The staff is generally concerned with the well-being of each and every person enrolled in the program and they take whatever steps are necessary to give everyone the best possible chance of recovery. Furthermore, Keys is different from other programs that I have attended in that the staff recognizes that addictions is an all encompassing disease, and as such, the staff do everything in their power to address issues affecting the ´whole person,´as well as his, or her family. Keys in undoubtedly one of the greatest assets in our community and the work done by the Keys staff is both saving lives and taxpayer dollars by helping addicted persons like me, a chance to recover, stay out of the penal system and lead productive lives. In this regard, any state or federal dollars dedicated to the Keys program will certainly return great dividends."

"I experienced a lot of important things in this program. One thing I experienced in this program is many ways to occupy yourself rather than using drugs. Another thing I experienced while being in this program is that all the counselors are really trying their best to help you out with your problems. I also experienced many helpful techniques to use to have a more successful life. Keys taught me a lot while I´m in this program. Keys taught me how to keep my head up when I feel the urge to use drugs, they taught me how to use coping skills, and they taught me many other skills to help stay clean."
