... When I came to your JC, NY office for an employment drug test. You explained
"Fight Back" to me when I told you about my parents problem in Texas. They complained
to the police about a drug house on their street. The police showed up at their house for all to see.
When the police left the drug dealers stoned my parents house and yelled threats at
them for weeks. They are elderly and trying to sell their house for almost a year now.
You assured me you could stop all the drug traffic in less than three days and you did.
My parents gave me the address of the drug dealers and license plate numbers accumulated
for more than a year. Keeping my parents completely out of it and from NY you scared
off all the drug traffic and dealers in less than 48 Hrs.
The police are puzzled and all the neighbors feel free and safe again.
Thanks so much for giving my parents a safe drug free neighborhood to live in again.
...After several years of escalating drug use, failed rehabilitation, counseling
and violent behavior with my single mom I am on my way to recovery. After our
first session your brutal but passionate no nonsense approach put my mom and I on
the same side for the first time in years. You offended us equally. In our quest
to get even with you we actually realized it was possible to communicate. At the end
of our second encounter with you we realized you had a unique ability to evaluate and
manipulate our ignorance into positive eye opening ways to work through our problems
and my addiction. Once you made us realize my addiction was our problem the healing began.
Even though our third visit with you was our last we refer to your passion, and
fearless in your face logic that allows us to stay on point and continue to move
forward. I will be starting college soon and mom and I will no doubt be referring
to the brief but life changing encounter we experienced with you.
There are no words,

...My son had been using drugs since he was 12 years old. We brought him to see you
as a last resort at 17 years old and what looked like a certain future as a lost
adult. He had been kicked out of his forth rehab center and I had spent my life savings
on psychiatrists, psychologist and drug counselors. None had insisted on involving
the entire family. When you told my ex-wife and I to get our significant others,
in-laws, future in-laws, siblings and future step-siblings to commit to being
part of the solution I thought you were out of your mind. When I offered you
money to compromise on that request you told me to save the money for my son's
funeral or career prison life and wished me luck and a good day. I knew at that
moment you meant business. In short my son is doing very well for a little over
a year now. You showed us the light at the end of the tunnel in just a couple of
weeks when years and tens of thousands of dollars brought us consistently further
from hope with each day and dollar invested. You helped us create an internal
support team that just simply cannot fail. Your influence has impacted so many
more lives than just our immediate family. I now understand your comments as
you ended our first interview.
" there are too many people for me to help. If you don't get it by the third
visit you won't. Unfortunately for society I don't need you to fail in order for
me to survive. I have other families to schedule so do you want to try it my way
or can I make time for someone who will."
Thank you for your straight-forward approach and sharing your many years of knowledge.
...My husband & I suspected our fifteen year old for months. You spoke to me several
times and never asked our names or mentioned money. We finally convinced him to get
tested and we are on the road to recovery.

...I just wanted to drop a line to quickly thank you again for your courteous and
professional help with .... last week. You certainly went above and beyond the
call of duty in how you handled this situation. In this day of greedy
businesses and the, it's all about me attitude, it is refreshing to find an honest businessman who feels
he is here to do more than just a job.
Mike I would highly recommend your company to anyone in my industry or anyone who is in
need of help with occupational health testing.... .

...When I called I was concerned about the way my thirteen-year-old daughter
was dressing, her new friends and attitude. After talking to you for a
short time you made me realize there may be more to think about. Just minutes into
our first visit you convinced her to be tested. She was positive for heroin. I was
devastated and she was mad and in denial. Before we left you made sure we where
communicating and assured both of us this was not the end of the world. The literature,
advice, referrals and support have truly been a saving grace.
