-Stephanie J. (resident)
"Having our son at Mount Trexler Manor has given our family peace of mind - no worries about whether he’s taking his meds, we know he will get three nutritious meals a day, and he is in a safe and caring environment. Staff is always responsive to our needs, phone calls are returned promptly and we have always been quickly informed of any concerns about our son’s wellbeing.
It is helpful to have continuity of care between our son’s living environment at Mount Trexler Manor and the therapeutic programs at the Joint Commission accredited clinic at New Vitae.
One of the best things about Mount Trexler Manor is how included we feel as family members. We are invited to several seasonal get-togethers, including not just residents and their families but also staff and their families. We are also encouraged to attend seminars with staff and residents and are welcomed to visit whenever we want.
Mount Trexler Manor offers many advantages to residents besides just the usual daily schedule. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of daily trips to local stores, libraries, community events, and more."

"As a licensed clinical social worker and a certified advanced alcohol and drug counselor I am extremely proud to be a fellow team member at New Vitae Wellness and Recovery. The staff works as a cohesive team who truly cares about the residents and about the quality of clinical and supportive services. Each person is respected as the unique individual they are with their specific needs taken into account. The client's behavioral health, addiction issues, life skills, future goals and wants are respected and worked with in a dignified fashion. Any other aspect whether it be social, family, employment or any other issue that is important to the specific person is taken into account and supported to help the optimum positive result occur for the individual.
The staff also treats each other with respect and support. I am extremely proud to attach my credentials to an agency that does not just say what they do but actually in spirit provides the support, treatment and care to individuals served in such a caring fashion. The residents entrust New Vitae to be there for them at sometimes the most difficult times in their lives, and at New Vitae the services are provided in the most comprehensive, supportive, caring and professional manner possible. I enjoy coming to work at New Vitae Wellness and Recovery. The community is very fortunate to have such an agency available."

"I think that the management & staff go above and beyond to make each resident as comfortable as possible and attend to each one's specific needs. When I have concerns, phone calls are returned promptly and a positive & constructive conversation ensues to try to resolve the issue. When we visit the facility, the resident's room is always spotless and so are all the halls & the dining room. On “special occasion” visiting days they always provide a welcoming good meal, some entertainment or a little education for the challenges we have to face as family members and care givers."
-Marge T. (ally)

-Ann E. (resident)
"Our daughter arrived at New Vitae late in 1995 from New Jersey. We had to be sure to select holistic services because Susan’s health had a long history of being poor, necessitating frequent doctor’s visits and hospital stays. We admire the efficiency over the regular and timely administration of medications by a very pleasant medical service staff under a nurse’s direction. We are regularly advised about health issues arising and can rest assured that everything necessary is done well.
Knowing many of the staff members through our frequent visits, we can be sure that our daughter has well planned activities in the house daily and visits to locations elsewhere – the big event of the year being the week at Cape May, New Jersey. Another good thing is the location of the home: the residents can easily walk to so many stores, restaurants or just walk for their pleasure.
Finally, it is so good to know that all this is happening at an affordable cost to us. We had checked with similar homes, when Susan was still in NJ, as far away as Ohio and Minnesota, located in very rural small towns with significantly less services, but considerably higher fees."
-Peter H. (parent)

At the conclusion of their discussion, Donna told me, 'Sam should come to live with us. He deserves to lead a meaningful life.' As a result of New Vitae Wellness and Recovery’s supports, Donna's words have been fulfilled."
-John G. (family member)

My sister has been a resident at Mount Trexler Manor for almost 20 years. New Vitae has been a tremendous comfort to our family. We know she is safe. In addition, my sister has a supportive social network and her medical/mental health needs are being addressed. These social and health care services have helped my sister make progress in meeting life’s daily challenges. My sister considers Mount Trexler Manor to be her home, which speaks of its warm and caring atmosphere.
As a psychologist, I know the challenges of finding quality care. The New Vitae Wellness and Recovery agency meets the challenge. In conversations with administration, my sister’s caseworkers, and medical staff, it is clear they understand my sister’s illness. They maintain open lines of communication with me and my family about my sister’s progress and any issues needing the family’s attention. There have been numerous occasions where administration and staff have gone above and beyond to provide comfort and help my sister when she is having difficulty. I cannot thank them enough for all they do for her!
-Patricia L. (family member, psychologist)
"I had Major Depression, anxiety, (and) PTSD. After more than 5 years and 3 doctors, trying many medications with side effects, and electroconvulsive therapy with no lasting effect, I still wasn't feeling any better. Through my support group, I heard about Brainsway deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. Through treatment and the caring support of my wife and staff at New Vitae Wellness and Recovery Center, I got my life back. Now I can do the things I like to do, including travel."
-Mike D. (deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation user)
"I'd never thought I would be in my own apartment, but here I am and it's all because of you. I now know that I am a better person and that I can be positive and succeed at life. Thank you for taking a chance on me. I will miss this place!"
-Janee G. (former resident)
"I really appreciated the personal attention. My addiction centered on trauma, and this was the first group that recognized that and validated my feelings. I will be forever grateful."
-Clem R. (former treatment participant)
"I learned more than I did in rehab or in other outpatient programs. I focused on what caused the drinking as opposed to anything else. I identified coping skills and learned how to handle triggers."
-Kathleen S. (former treatment participant)
"The staff was committed, educated, and extremely caring."
-Michelle K. (former treatment participant)
"I am completely and pleasantly amazed that my life has changed so much, in a good way, in just a few weeks. I was apprehensive and definitely unsure that the program would be right for me and that I could succeed in the program. I have been able to reinvent myself as a calmer, happier, sober person I've wanted to be. Now I have to keep moving forward with hard work, the tools you taught me, and my determination to succeed in sobriety. Thank you so much for helping me start the healing process in a positive way."
-Diane A. (former treatment participant)
"This was by far the best outpatient program I've been to. I've learned a lot and was able to build a strong foundation for my recovery. Staff is incredible and helped me tremendously. I don't think I would have stayed sober without the help I received here."
-Alyssa C. (former treatment participant)
"I feel so much stronger, healthier, and more positive since attending. I really feel like I worked on myself, not just my addiction. I like who I'm becoming. All of my relationships have improved."

"I have battled depression my entire life. The older I became, the worse the symptoms got. I was feeling totally hopeless. Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation at New Vitae saved my life. I began dTMS therapy in January of 2017. Almost immediately, I could feel the positive effects. This was a life-changing experience. I find the twenty minute sessions very relaxing - most times I almost doze off! There is no pain or discomfort! Everyone at New Vitae is awesome and are committed to your needs. I'm living proof that dTMS therapy works! It has given me a new life. Each day I gain more strength, courage, and self-esteem, all drug free!"
-John M. (deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation user)
I can't say enough good about the legacy that Adam Devlin and his family have built there in Quakertown. Amazing.
