ASAC counselors always appreciate receiving feedback from patients after they've completed their treatment, whether they've been in a residential program or outpatient counseling. Here is a note one of ASAC's staff received a few months after this individual left outpatient counseling:
Being in ASAC has me wanting to help others struggling with addiction and mental health. After attending ASAC, my idea of treatment has totally changed and ASAC was so awesome.
You have been one of the best people I've ever met, and I am so lucky that I had you as my counselor to guide me through this. I am truly so proud of myself that I have maintained my sobriety, and I feel like I've finally gotten to the light at the end of the tunnel.
I can't wait to continue on this year with my sobriety and be the best person I can be, for myself and everyone around me!
