Review for Operation Par Inc, Pinellas Park, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

PAR has saved my son's life! He was addicted to oxycodone and his life spiraled out of control. Eventually, he was arrested trying to buy pills. While this was a wakeup call for him, it did not solve his problem, nor teach him about his addiction and how to live a drug free life. He did have the courage to ask the judge for help. The Judge recommended Operation PAR as in inpatient in their therapeutic community.

While it has not been easy, he was committed to overcome his drug addiction. PAR gave him the tools and education he needed to be successful. There were many things he did not agree with, nor could he understand some of their rules. Slowly, as his mind became clearer and his body healthier, the logic behind PAR's methods began to make sense to him. Operation PAR is very pro-family and helped to educate our family about addiction as well.

It has been almost a year and he is still doing well. I thank Operation PAR for saving his life and giving my son back his family

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

While PAR's methods are very good, I would like to see them expore alternate programs other than AA/NA as this program may not be the right fit for every client.
