  • How are you different from other rehabilitation programs?

    We don’t treat people like a diagnosis. We treat the person, always putting their dreams and goals ahead of systems and protocol. Our program also has a unique culture. We’re not patients and therapists. We’re friends, peers, supporters, collaborators, and encouragers. Simply put, it’s hard to come by a culture that’s so relationship-oriented.
