"How do I put into words what Alcare means to me? My addictions were on the verge of killing me when this place came into my life. These four walls gave me a safe place to stay while I dealt with the physical cravings and thoughts that plague addicts in their first months of sobriety. So how do I put into words what Alcare means to me? One word: home."
Darren H. June 1998 - March 1999
