Excellent therapist and teacher.
It helps to be able to talk with someone.
I really enjoyed coming to class. It helped me a lot. Thank you.
I learned a lot about addiction and disease and how to not feel guilty about my past. I was able to stay clean and get the help I needed by coming to class and talking and listening.
IOP and Aftercare have really helped me in my addiction and to know what to do in the future. Thanks for giving me my life back.
Everyone at both clinics (East & West) are extremely wonderful and helpful. I feel like they’re family.
ADS saved my life and are some of the greatest people I’ve ever known.
I came here wanting help and ADS has provided more than expected. I thank them very much.
This program is a good place. Without it, I don’t know where I would be right now. Thank you guys!
