Program Graduate —

"Thank you very much for seeing me as a person—a normal, good person who made a mistake, but is working hard to become emotionally healthy for myself and others.

When I first came in, I was extremely guarded, ashamed, and torn inside. And you, Ms. Graves, were compassionate, honest and empathetic. I will never forget your kindness."

J.B. —

"I have been a good example of what not to do for friends and family. I used to be the guy, 'Oh, I won't het caught; I'm fine to drive!' But since my DWI, I have completely changed my outlook. I have learned so much from the course that I catch myself talking to others about things I've learned."
