I’ve never made money by referring anyone anywhere and I told them that. That said, I imagine they do help some people get off psych drugs — but I have also heard some pretty bad stories about things that didn’t go so well there. Of course, I hear these stories all over — from lots of different places. Being at the Life Center and taking the Road Back program has made me a more calm and confident man. The meals were great, the staff are friendly and the location is very magical. There is something very magical and healing about the Life Center and many people benefit then fold from living here. It was amazing how different he was when he came home…everyone noticed the change for the better….and he continues to improve his communication and relations with others on a daily basis.
We wanted to help her but we were very reluctant to send her to a psychiatrist as it would mean more drugs and from the data we gathered, those drugs could have made the situation worse. We knew that Marc Vallieres had a ranch in Tennessee which would sometimes take care of people in trouble. We asked Marc if he could take care of our daughter by providing a safe environment away from large cities where she could stay. When she lived in the city, she would become involved in drugs and would end up being around people who would abuse her, endanger her and add to her misery. Since she has been with Marc she had improved tremendously. Now, not only is she not doing that, but she helps with house cleaning, cooking and taking care of the animals. She has not touched any drugs or alcohol since she’s been there, almost a year now.

A holistic approach to mental illness is the better way, yet that approach takes cooperation with the person suffering from psychosis. Sadly, when the person is so psychotic that they feel threatened by everything and everyone then they lose the ability to help themselves. The best approach for them is to use whatever is needed to bring them back and go from there. I have seen the extreme with my paranoid schizophrenic son and I want to help others bring their children back. My son became violent and out of control after taking some unknown designer drug. For a long time I was trying to help my son recover from that experience. I refuse to let him in the hand of psychiatrists as all they would have done is give him more drugs which would have turned him into a zombie.

My son would destroy any apartment or motel room I would rent for him. I found out about Marc Vallieres’ place and asked him if he could help me. He stopped being violent and has not been for months. He still needs to learn to take showers on his own and he is not ready to function in society. Without the help that Marc provided, I would have lost my son.
