To stand in the lobby and watch the lost, sick, and nearly dead clients enter these programs is to witness true miracles, one after the other, as they exit clear-eyed, and with a new purpose and meaning to their existences. The programs are the best that can be found and they are delivered free of any charge to the people who need them the most.I am a member of this organization because of how proud I am to be affiliated with such top-notch world class professionals who give of their life, experience, and time so freely. This is truly a "paying it forward" organization, offering free addiction treatment services to those of us who need it the most (homeless, uninsured, vulnerable, and invisible populations).
