"By far, this is the best treatment program I've ever been through. Filled with passionate staff, awesome director by taking care of our needs as human beings. Small, individualized treatment and rehabilitation. Can't wait for what each day brings, challenging yet rewarding. Thanks to these guys I strive to remain drug free."
"After attending numerous outpatient centers, it was a struggle to find a program where I could connect with the therapist and effectively work towards recovery. They understood the importance of setting me up for success beyond treatment and I'm forever grateful."
"When I needed to get my brother help for his drinking they were able to act quickly and get him in the very next day. It's been 3 months since he left the program and I have my old brother back."
"My experience was fantastic. I truly felt that everyone genuinely cared to see me get better and I truly feel that I have...For anyone who has concerns as I had of being overly supervised I can assure you that this is the perfect balance...The plans vary from 21-90 days and everyday makes a difference."
