A person’s struggle with addiction is never easy. Worse, admitting that one has a problem and needs help is only the tip of the iceberg.

They should also receive the most up-to-date, current care available to aid in their recovery. Unfortunately, the testimonies of many who leave recovery facilities are not consistent with this type of care.
