The staff at Addiction Recovery has been extremely supportive in my recovery process, without the dedication and time provided by the staff I dont know where I would be today.

Amber R.

Addiction Recovery program is absolutely an amazing program, the program is the only reason I am able to even write this today, if not for Dr. Brown, Gloria RN and Cindy LPC, and them not giving up on me through my recovery I would not be able to start my new life. Making the correct diagnosis of my co-occurring illness and being placed on the correct medication has now put me on the right path, not only for my recovery but giving me my life back. I realize my co-occurring illness is what led to my drug addiction since I was sixteen and what self medicating means.

Dr. Brown and staff are too notch. I have never received such care in a medical environment before. Dr Brown and staff treat the underlying problems not just medicate you. Take your life back and end the vicious circle of addiction call Dr. Brown.
