Addiction Points of View!

I have started this category of discussion so that others who have opposing views, opinions, ideas, or just something new and innovative can share and comment on points of view. While i am foremost all about the community and the consumer and the rights they have toward addiction treatment services, I am also not so closed minded to say that because i am an expert in the field of addiction, treatment and recovery that i am always right. Please feel free to comment!  

Summer Sky Recovery Center is featured on America’s Nightly Voice for Recovery!

RECOVERY – Coast to Coast radio show features two hours of engaging dialogue, news updates and interviews around the topics of addiction, treatment, research and recovery.
