Above It All Treatment Center:
Client Success Stories – 2015


“When I got here, my disease started pulling out every stop. I’m so glad that everyone here pulled out every stop to help me fight back. And I know for a fact that one of the main reasons I stayed and am in a much clearer, more aware place now is that, not to sound cliché, as a group effort from every facet of this family. So much more than just a company…they loved me until I could begin to love and forgive and understand myself, and for that I am so grateful.”
