Professional and informative every session

The staff were so supportive of my recovery. I had nothing when I arrived there. The staff did an excellent job helping me meet my medical, financial, legal, employment, therapeutic, and recovery education needs. They really set me up for success. Today, I have a wonderful, clean, and sober life of independent living. They are still supportive of my aftercare growth. I am forever grateful for them!
