“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. Thank you for bringing her into my life!” ~ R.P. (Patient)

“Our son seems to be headed in the right direction and I wanted to sincerely thankConnections in Recovery for all of your help. We truly appreciate your support during those difficult first weeks and the following months. Our son’s sober companion was instrumental in his recovery and we truly believe without him, our son wouldn’t be where he is today. Our companion is a great guy and was a perfect fit for our son. We are forever grateful.” ~ Mr. and Mrs. L.
