An amazing place where families DO come home to heal. I have never felt so supported. The amazing staff has been there through all of the trials and tribulations I have encountered. The staff has always made me feel as if I belong somewhere and that me and my children were and always will be loved. Amethyst Place is life!

– Tiare T., AP Mom

AP has given me a safe and stable place to reunify with my daughter and has also been a huge help in giving me some of the basic skills I was never taught as a young adult or abandoned altogether in my addiction. I am a better me than I was when I moved in because of this program.”

– Samantha W., AP Mom
