You Don’t Have to Hit Rock Bottom

There’s a prevailing presumption that a substance abuse problem isn’t something that needs to be addressed until things get dire—until all resources are depleted and life has become completely unmanageable.

Recovery Hurdles

Denise Bertin-Epp talks on recovery hurdles in the journey to sobriety. “In our recovery journey, getting to a point of willingness can be terrifying.”

UR in the right place


It begins today. In fact, it’s happening already.

The road to recovery begins by imagining a life without addiction. Perhaps you or a loved one has lived with substance use for too long. Perhaps, the people closest to you are telling you that you're out of control and you need to address it. Whatever the case, you can re-vision your life with wellness at the core.

that’s what urban recovery can do.

What our clients are saying

“Lee FitzGerald is a shining star who came into our lives during a time of absolute darkness. Our adult son was destroying himself with drugs and alcohol, and was in a rapidly deteriorating downward spiral of ever more serious consequences. He had resisted all attempts to help, and all offers of treatment. We felt helpless and hopeless. Lee spoke privately to our son, in a manner that resonated with him. She recommended an excellent facility that was acceptable to him. He later confided that her words were more convincing than any he had heard before. He actually entered residential rehab following that conversation. We are happy to report that our son is now in his eighth month of sobriety and recovery. Lee has been with us, and with our son, throughout the recovery journey.”

“Lee FitzGerald has been an integral partner and incredible resource in working with our family and our child dealing with depression, body dysmorphic disorder and substance abuse. She knows how to diffuse very hot situations into effective conversations to create a game plan with simple goals, one step at a time. She has been available to us and our child 100%. Her dedication to helping us all and going the extra mile is impressive. I highly recommend Lee FitzGerald as a trusted advisor, a compassionate and down to earth advocate and resource for anybody and every family struggling with a loved one’s battle with depression and addiction.”

“I do know that I couldn’t say enough! You are a true gift! Compassionate, responsive, and professional describes Lee. After nearly 25 years of our daughter suffering from addiction, tearing apart our close family, and surviving a near fatal automobile accident, we needed to escape our lives of chaos and find help. Lee was always available and understanding of our daughter as well as for us, the parents. She encouraged us to take care of ourselves, yet never gave up hope for our daughter. She never stopped exploring options and communicating with her fellow professionals to find help for our family. She is well connected in the recovery world. She will work endlessly to find answers and solutions. Lee is a true gift. We are so grateful to have worked with her.”

“When I came to Dr. Bruce Singer, I was a broken person who thought my life was over due to alcoholism.  Through his teachings and insight over the course of the month, I went from rock bottom to seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Today I am over 5 years sober and grateful for a second chance at life.”

Lauren Z.

“Six and a half years ago while languishing in my self inflicted hell, I was blessed to meet Dr. Bruce Singer. I was a patient at a rehab in Connecticut who knew everything and certainly didn’t want anything to do with Dr. Singer. Well, as it turns out when I finally surrendered after five or six days, he turned out to be my single handed savior. Yes Bruce Singer saved my life with his knowledge, understanding and so much compassion! He introduced me to mindfulness which has so affected the quality of my life. If I can put it in two words…………. THANK YOU”

“Accompanied by his parents and his AA sponsor, my 34-year-old son checked into Urban Recovery just two months ago and finally admitted to having a serious cocaine habit.
From the moment he arrived; to the day he left, he was treated with kindness and respect.
When I asked Denise Bertin-Epp, Urban Recovery CEO about what made this rehab special, she had told me that they treat addicts with love. And that love was apparent throughout my son’s thirty-day stay.
Most important and especially valuable, with knowledge of my son gained during his stay at Urban Recovery, a perfect next option plan was recommended for my son’s step-down recovery treatment.
Urban Recovery fulfilled all my expectations and was a tremendous help for my son, and our family, to begin the process of recovery together.”
