“I first came to see Heath after my drug addiction had ravaged my life and the lives of everyone I held dear to me.  I learned about Heath at a time when I feared that I had nowhere else to go.  Heath didn’t offer me a trick solution or a quick fix, what he did offer me was a helping hand to pull myself up out of the nightmare of my addiction.  Over the course of my treatment, Heath has argued with me, questioned me and challenged me, all the while standing resolutely by my side as I engaged in a battle for my life.   I will be in recovery for the rest of my life, but thanks to Heath’s support and guidance and, of course God’s Grace, I am sober, I am a better husband and father and I am happier than I have ever been.”
