They are informal, they care, they explain options None that I observed I can say that the treatment did work. They have group meetings and give you the basic skills called "tools" that you have to apply in your life. Its easier to be abstinence in a controlled environment but when you leave there coming back to the real world, there is where the dangers lie and you have to use those tools. You have to be ready to change but this has to be done for you, not your child, loved ones etc. It will not work if its not for you....when you get to THAT place in your life it goes like this WE ARE HERE BECAUSE THERE IS NO REFUGE FINALLY FROM OURSELVES, UNTIL A PERSON SHARES THEIR SECRETS, THEY HAVE NO SAFETY FROM THEM. AND BEGIN TO GROW, NOT AS THE GIANT OF OUR DREAMS OR THE DWARFS OF OUR FEARS, BUT AS A PERSON, A PART OF A WHOLE. BY THIS WE CAN TAKE ROOT AND GROW. THEN WE CAN LIVE.
