I've never been to any other treatment facility where the fact that they actually care shows like it does here. Everyone I've had a pleasure to meet has always been right there if I needed any kind of help with my rehabilitation. I would never be where I am in my recovery without them and I can't thank y'all enough... I truly love you all.
