“My mental health companion is amazing! She is an incredible woman and has been a tremendous help in the short time we have been together! I now recognize why your company is so successful, and value the communication and continuity of care. I have stopped all contact with the other coaching company. Thank you for bringing her into my life!” ~ R.P. (Patient)

“My daughter, struggling with several years to be sober, was helped by Connections in Recovery. I have seen such growth, both mentally and physically in her life. Patty Baret took my daughter under her wing and has been there for her on such a personal level. Patty does not judge or criticize but listens with her mind and heart and advises her through her knowledge and personal experiences, in such a way that allows my daughter to make the best decisions for herself.” ~ Mary Pat Finn (Mother)
