Alumni Testimonials
  • AIA was a great experience and provided me with the help I needed. The staff and clients were all supportive and friendly and helped me through my recovery and I will never forget any of them. I feel I’m leaving here a new person and will keep everything I learned here and take it with me in my journey and apply it in my recovery. I will keep everyone in my thoughts, prayers and heart.
  • Thank you Kory for helping me on the financial side because my insurance doesn’t want to pay. Cheryl was great. Rick and Ashley I really cherished. Than you AIA for all you did for me!! You are doing God’s work. God bless you all.
  • Thank you AIA for making my first (and hopefully last) experience a memorable one. I learned a lot!! Thank you Marsha for your guidance! Thank you Nancy for your hugs and love! Both ladies have made this experience a memorable one! They will always carry a special place in my heart. Thank you Kory for having this program. Your heart is huge! You are a blessing to many lost souls!!
  • Prior to coming to treatment I hoped Mario to be my counselor, and that was met. Love the guy. I also wanna thank all the nurses and staff, especially my house manager, Jerry, he’s a cool dude. Thanks AIA, definitely changed my life. Thanks again.
