"I felt at all times that the staff I encountered were very interested in helping me. I never felt like a 'number.' "-CEL

" I did not feel judged or less of a person because of my alcohol issues. It has been a very positive experience...I also now realize this is a forever problem that I have to address on a daily basis."-Bobby
