We Understand Substance Abuse, We’ve Been There Too

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

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!
