We Understand Substance Abuse, We’ve Been There Too
American Addiction Centers Navigator - Nick
My favorite part is not having to lie anymore. Living a double life and hiding every action, and every thought is extremely tiresome. Now, I am just free to be me. Life is so much easier when you are able to just be open and honest and free.
Nick, Admissions Navigator
American Addiction Centers Navigator - Karla
The best thing about being in recovery is the time. I spent so much time drinking and being hungover that I didn’t do anything else. I now have time to give back to my community, spend time with my family and friends, grow a garden!
