Each person is a unique and worthwhile individual with the opportunity to make life choices every second of every day. Making appropriate choices can be compromised by mental illness, alcohol and other drug addictions. These problems do not define an individual's identity, but are indicators of the need for sweeping change. We believe all individuals have potential to achieve personal change, personal growth and personal accountability.
