The Difference

FHE Health is an accredited addiction center, which means we’ve worked to ensure we provide the highest level of care and support to you, our patients, and their families.


A bold, entrepreneurial spirit, smart business management strategies, and a real passion for helping people find recovery tell how FHE Health has grown and come to flourish through the years under the direction of Sherief.


FHE is one of the few providers that offers Neuro Therapy and other groundbreaking interventions, thanks to Sherief Moustafa. When added to more conventional treatments, innovations such as Neuro Therapy are increasing patients’ quality of life and their treatment outcomes. 


An attitude and posture of service and giving are part of FHE Health’s DNA. Just one example among others: Hundreds of people who would not have been able to afford treatment have been able to get this essential care with the help of scholarships at the behest of Sherief Moustafa and the FHE leadership team.


Ending the addiction and mental health epidemic will take a lot of hard work. Sherief believes a big part of the answer is high-quality treatment that people can trust— and the tenacious desire to keep learning, improving on, and expanding care for the sake of the next person who needs it.
