What our alumni say
“They’re one of the few drug treatment programs that really cares and isn’t in it for the money like other places I’ve been to recently. They want to help people change their lives , build a solid foundation and set them up for long term sobriety. I was instantly comfortable with their main therapist/clinical director which usually always takes time for me. If you're struggling and want help I hope you reach out to them.”Jared C.
“Such a beautiful and special place of healing. The staff genuinely cares about every client, and helps them find their way back to living a life worth living. Sober. Happy.”Heather M.
“Top notch program. The staff/treatment team is professional and caring. They treat you with respect and show that they actually really care. I would recommend this program to anyone.”Jordan W.
“The team is top notch! And the facility is amazing. It feels far more inviting that other outpatient programs I’ve seen and the clinical team is friendly and really knows what they are doing! I would highly recommend anyone looking for recovery for them or their loved one from addiction/alcoholism.”Thomas A.
