Once the underlying issue was addressed and treated, I no longer needed to use drugs. I still need the support of my family and recovery friends to help me stay clean and sober. My treatment experience and the changes in my life as a result were so amazing that it sent me on a path to help others with mental illness and substance abuse.” – Tony B.
