Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

His plan works if you want it to work. It saved my life, without question. Tomorrow never comes for an addict. Do it today. A sober life is far more satisfying and fun than being dope sick or numb. Dr. Hefter's method is the way to go. His staff is first class and he listens.

Dr. Hefter literally turned my life around. I was in a very dark place in my life with no direction or guidance and thank God I found Dr. Steven Hefter. Unlike most doctors, Dr. Hefter doesn't treat his patients like a "customer." He treats his patients like they're apart of his family. He genuinely cares about the wellbeing of his patients and will be your biggest fan in the journey of turning your life around.
