  • I’m writing this review not necessarily about Your Second Chance Recovery, but more about its owner and the source of its success, Dana Mcmahon. I was Dana‘s lawyer when he was at rock bottom, heroin-addicted and in jail. Using the steps that helped him gain his own sobriety and control over his life, he bought the headquarters of the rehabilitation program that actually expelled him, and is now the best in the business at helping others get their own lives back. If you don’t believe me, check out his Facebook reviews. Call Your Second Chance Recovery if you or a loved one need help. You’ll be glad you did.

  • As a mom of their child being in recovery and searching for a way to obtain and maintain sobriety, I believe Your Second Chance Recovery will give him that fighting chance with it being a 12-Step based program and knowing he is being mentored by Dana McMahon who has lived it from both sides and now can give back in helping others. So thankful you are in our paths:)

  • Having been a client at YSC during the Covid pandemic I was unsure what to expect during this crazy time. My experience was nothing like my mind told me it would be like. If anything I feel like the staff here worked longer hours and gave freely of their time to sit and talk with us after their shifts ended. You can feel the love here and all of the staff members are in recovery themselves so it was easy to open up. They let us into their personal lives where its evident right away that the advice and suggestions they give us is stuff they do on a daily basis to stay sober themselves. I’ve heard people talk a good game including myself but rarely do their feet match their mouths. The owner Dana picked me up off the streets of Pompano where I was homeless panhandleing and gave me a second chance at life. The name of this facility isn’t just some sound good marketing ploy they really give people another chance at life. Not many South Florida treatment center owners will ever even talk to their clients. This guy tracked me down and took me detox because my Mom called him in a panic. His partner Dan took me out to breakfast this morning. Its the little things like that which show me they care and that they will be a part of my recovery journey long after leaving YSC. Very grateful for this place.

  • YSC has been the best decision I have ever made, Dana and his team are the best. The 12 step program that he introduces helped me get my life back n learn how to live a life of sobriety. I will always be grateful, and I highly recommend you take that first step and get your life back with their help.

  • As a parent, my prayers have come true. This has truly been a second chance for my son, and ultimately my entire family. If you believe in Angels, as I do, continue to pray for the success of this loving, heartfelt recovery home and the personal care of Dana McMahon.

  • As someone who has struggled with addiction for years, I have lived in many halfway houses. YSC is the best one I have ever lived in. Not only is the house very nice, clean, and well structured but the owner (Dana McMahon) is great and really cares. He goes above and beyond to help the guys who live there and is very active in the recovery community.
