"Thank you for helping me begin the journey to recovery. I feel hopeful for the first time in my life. Thanks for your support and the support of the COPE program."
"Thank you for being a huge support for my family and I during the most difficult time in my young life. We could absolutely not have done it without you.
You’ve helped me get on the road of recovery and I can’t thank you enough for that. You’ve really saved my life.
Dealing with me must have been hard at times and I give you so much credit for that. I wish you the best and look forward to working with you in the future."
"We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all of you who have been involved with our daughter’s care the last two months. You have not only supported and guided her through the most difficult time in her young life, but you have also helped us manage and keep sane. Your understanding and kind ways have meant a lot to us and will continue to do so as we move toward our daughter’s journey to recovery."
"Thank you for everything. We really enjoyed getting to know you. The genuine compassion you have for your patients shines through and always meant so much to our family. Thank you. P.S. We will miss seeing you and your smile!!!"
"I want to thank you so very much for everything you have done for me through my entire stay at COPE and home recovery. I was blessed to have you as my social worker. Courtney and my family also thank you.
Even when I was angry and upset, you always respected. I liked how you were and are. I’m following through with everything you set up for me. Just know you made a difference in my life and you are the best ever. Enjoy the rest of summer."
"I’m not all that good at expressing gratitude and saying goodbye in person, so I wanted to take the opportunity to do both in this card.
While I realize that helping people is your job, I think that you and the other clinicians go over and above what is required. You make people feel that you actually care about their health and well-being and progress through the program. It’s truly touching to have found such a wonderful group of people all dedicated to helping others.
I know that often times you don’t get to see patients fully recover, so you don’t get to see all of the good that you do.
I was disappointed that I would not be continuing treatment with you, but I wanted to let you know that your positive force has helped me make a change that has and will continue to improve my life.
I guess what I’m saying is that you did such a great job and I can’t thank you enough for all that."
