It is very rewarding working with both the staff and residence of Cenikor, a long term drug and alcohol treatment program in Fort Worth. I have witnessed graduates of the 2 year program graduate from college and become very productive and useful members of society.
I not only serve on the Advisory Council but am also fortunate enough to work for a company that is a vocational partner. I work daily with the residents and graduates. They are humble, high performing employees.
This is a great program that helps people who have made some poor decisions be able to get on their feet and with help, set-up to be successful.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Incorporate 12 step programs early in the clients recovery process.

The tour of Cenikor was great!! Sandra was a great tour guide and the girls that are in the program made it more personal to hear their stories and stuggles and to see such a great organization helping them made my day. To see first hand the facility and what great work Cenikor is doing was worth it. I highly reccommend anyone that has or knows anyone with a drug additction to take the tour, it will bring them joy to see an organization help citzen back on their feet.

I have toured Cenikor, Ft. Worth multiple times and each time I was more impressed than before with the work they are doing to help those with long term addictions. This intern helps our society as a whole.

The Ft. Worth operation is outstanding.

Cenikor has an amazing program that takes people from all different backgrounds and with many different substance abuse problems and teaches them a new way to live. I was a hopeless addict and recidivist with no place left to go and no one to turn to for help. Cenikor picked me up and took me in and gave me the opportunity to change. When I removed the drugs from my life the real problem became apparent...and it was me. Cenikor's program is unique because it address your whole problem by breaking it down to the core issues. Work ethic, honesty, integrity, independence, and all the other things I did not know I had lost. Today you can describe me with different words like husband, father, friend, student, and manager. They told me when I went into the program that if I followed what they asked me to do then my life would be returned to me. I did and it was. Thank you Cenikor!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand the locations to other cities so that more people could be helped.

I graduated from Cenikor back in 1979. I have continued to use the tools I learned from the program and have been clean and sober for more than 30 years. This program saved my life and I have had a wonderful life since. I'm sure I'd be long gone if it wasn't for Cenikor and the people who cared enough to help me with my addiction.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I'm sure the program has changed since I went through. It was a very difficult but life changing.

I was a terrible addict who needed help. I came to Cenikor from the U.S. Virgin Islands. I had a family member who had been to Cenikor. Twenty months later I am a new man. I am so happy to have broken the chains of addiction and am in a much better place now. I love being clean and sober. Thank you Cenikor for helping me.

Great organizations like Cenikor don't need to change.
