Real Alumni Speaking to Their Experiences With ARS

I attended their 5-week I.O.P. and theIr aftercare classes and it was very helpful. The counselors they have there are very knowledgeable and made me feel welcome and comfortable. So I definitely recommend ARS to anyone looking for help. Thank you guys for everything.

I attended many IOP programs before finding this one and this one was by far the best. The program was great I felt really comfortable there and the staff was the best I’ve ever worked with. I’ve been sober over 3 years since attending and I am lucky I found them.

ARS provided an indispensible foundation to build upon when I attended their intensive outpatient program in fall 2017. Their welcoming staff and environment were able to tackle the situation I'd found myself in with an individualized plan to work towards being my best self. We discussed and implemented many tools that have very much played a large role in getting to where I am today. I really enjoyed the group therapy aspect as well as it benefitted myself and others to have people to relate to at various points in recovery. Long story short - I always looked forward to attending sessions and will suggest ARS to anyone in my life who is seeking assistance in putting their respective vices in the past. Thank you for everything ARS!

"The clinicians at ARS are so helpful, knowledgeable, caring, and dedicated to helping each individual who is seeking treatment to achieve their goals, whatever they may be. They are always supportive no matter the circumstance, and truly dive into matters of addiction, mental health, communication, self-esteem, and so many other topics. Their onsite psychologist and PT are also very helpful and an excellent added bonus to the program. I found I learned the same if not more than from the other group members and finally felt like I WAS NOT ALONE in this struggle. They also have an aftercare program for those who complete their IOP treatment for afterwards, which I personally find very helpful. I couldn’t recommend this program or the people enough."

"Great people. Great program. I would highly recommend anyone still sick and suffering to reach out..."
- Mike B (5 Star Google Review)

This program saved my life. I was on a destructive path and after several attempts at sobriety and my wits end I was put in touch with ARS. They truly care about the health, future and well being of their clients, long after you complete the program. In a safe and comfortable environment, you will learn about why and how to get better. I was an addict of 10 years before going to this program. I am now drug and alcohol free over a year after completing. I have the respect of my family back, I am gainfully and respectively employed, engaged and expecting a child soon. Without the help of ARS and the tender support of a group I am certain I would have none of this. Getting my life back and making connections with people that want what is best for you is what this program is all about. You will find educated and nurturing staff willing to help you however they can. I am certain of I can do it, you can too. Please do right by yourselves and your loved ones and call ARS today. It will be a decision you will be glad you made from the day you start. Flexible scheduling makes it work for any schedule.

10 years addicted
14 months sober.

Alive. Happy. Thriving.

Richard C. - (5 Star Google Review)

Exactly 2 years ago I entered this facility. I was lost, scared and had absolutely no idea what my future would hold. The staff at ARS were the most compassionate and encouraging group of individuals I have ever met. I had completed an IOP program across the country and it didn't even compare to this program. I attribute my success in my personal and professional life to the staff. I would not be where I am without them.
