Drake Institute Reviews from Patients
"When I first went to your seminar in April 1994 I was worried, skeptical and a bit mixed up about my condition and what I should do about it. As a 24-year-old I consider myself very well educated and successful and nothing wrong with me. However, my liver tests were high and I was dependent on Cylert since I was about 14 (after Ritalin and Desoxyn stopped working for me).
I worked really hard in the sessions and visualized being off the medication. It worked. Let me tell you what I've accomplished since being off the medication and finishing my 40 sessions; I earned a large raise at my company, my sphere of friends has grown tremendously, I have much higher self-esteem, and I've been able to start a very successful part-time business. I no longer look at myself as different from other people. I can accomplish anything and everything they can. I feel great about me. You helped me attain what I've always dreamed about but never thought possible.
Thanks so much."

"Thank you for helping me minimize my problems with ADD. You made it much easier for me to study for tests, and I aced one of them. I finally got some As on my report card and it felt great! One of my friends even told his mother about the changes he saw go on in me.
Last year it would have taken me two weeks to finish six questions in class. I couldn't remember what I read and I often had to re-read the chapters. The parent-teacher conferences were not always positive, and I was often 'down in the dumps' when one happened (which was quite often). In class, any noise near me could and would distract me. I wasn't mentally there in class, and when the teacher said my name I went huh, what?
At home I had constant arguments with my mother over everything except dinner time. Mostly we fought over homework, or any other demand made of me. I just couldn't concentrate. I didn't even have the weekends free. To make a long story short, I was miserable.
Now, I barely ever fight with my mother, when my teachers say my name, it's because I know the answer, and I feel ?GRRREAT!? I'm making new friends, and my taste in friends is dramatically changing. I was miserable, now I love my life.
What your program has done for me is indescribable. But in a word Thanks."
Dear Dr. Velkoff,
"I don't think you exist. No single person could be so great, and help so many people. I think you are actually a team of very smart people, and that they choose the handsome one to appear in videos. This is also my theory for Einstein, Stephen Hawkins, Jesus and possibly my parents. Seriously though. Thank you. You helped our family a lot and helped my parents understand me. My mother has always been very kind and caring but could never stand the things that I did. Thanks to you and your organization, now she understands and is much more tolerant and I am getting better."
Thank you so much, Dr. Velkoff!

ADHD Success Story
The program design for our son was really helpful and gave our son a confident feeling like other normal kids have. At the beginning we had so many issues listed that we wanted Drake to deal with e.g. hyperactivity, focus, following instructions, eye to eye contact to name a few.
With the following program offered by Drake (Neurofeedback, Fast Forward, and Captain’s Log) our son developed tremendous improvement as he moves forward in his daily life. Imagine you’re watching the TV series (Flip your Habits!). Everything changes as time goes by.
There is no amount of words or money that can explain the feeling that we feel as a parent as we walk out towards the close out of our son’s program at Drake.
Again, we recommend Drake Institute to everybody who has a similar struggle that we have undergone with our son. Try it and it really works.
