      "This program is good for pushing you to the very edge, where in previous history you would use. The difference is, at ATC, we are given the support and tools we need to learn how to make it through turmoil without resorting to using."


      "I believe this place represents the exact value of choice. It not only grants us the golden opportunity to change, but slowly transitions us back into the community at a rate that allows us to actually make it. Once we get there it's within our own power to maintain our wealth of knowledge".

      T. H.

      "I have only been here at ATC for about a week, but I have to say that I am more than pleased to be here. At first I was worried but with the staff and my fellow peers being so great and supportive I feel like I am not judged and recovery is possible. Now I feel very hopeful and like this new sober me is radiating and full of life that I thought no longer existed inside me. Thank you ATC."

      K. D.

      "I've been at ATC for about 3.5 months. In that time I've seen that most of the staff will go out of their way to help you or give you advice. And they talk to you like a person, not a number. I've had no issue with the program. If I work with it I think I will benefit from it. This program will show you what it takes to be a productive member of the community. You just have to want it and work for it.
