Addiction cares not whether you have a doctoral level education. Alcoholism never asks what color your skin is, or who your parents are.  Codependency, alcoholism and other addictions know no socio-economic boundaries, is not concerned with your age, how many languages you can speak, or if you can carry a tune.

The change is much deeper than just stopping drinking or using drugs. It’s truly about life transformation. Unlike traditional institutional rehabs, we work passionately and intensely with each individual…
