“I went to AspenRidge and could not be happier with my experience there. The counselors and the staff are wonderful. The program provided all the tools I needed to stay sober. The people who work at Aspen Ridge truly care about their clients. Even after graduating, AspenRidge still helps me to maintain sobriety. They have an alumnus meeting every week, as well as get togethers. It’s hard for me to write a review for AspenRidge, as it is not possible to put into words how this program has touched my heart and saved my life.” – AspenRidge Alumni
