  • review rating 5  I am so grateful to have gone through the program at Arrow Passages. The clinical and support staff there truly saved my life. They taught me more then I ever could have imagined about myself and about addiction/recovery. I was given the tools and skills necessary to build a healthy and productive future. I would absolutely recommend the program to anyone who genuinely wants to turn his or her life around.

    review rating 5  This place definitely focuses on their duel diagnosis program. Working with the client's to find out there under lining issues so they can adress the addiction issue. Very friendly and they go the distance for there clients. They put recovery at an awesome level. They helped my cousin who went through here and he is still clean and being the father he needs to be.

  • review rating 5  Words can hardly describe what Arrow Passage Recovery has done for me. They literally saved my life and for that I will forever be grateful. Their staff care so deeply for each and every client. I have gained a working knowledge of addiction, the steps and so much more. My fellow peers and I felt like a large family, all rooting for one another. The house itself is beautiful and spacious, and I loved the country atmosphere and the fresh air. The office where we had groups is beautiful as well, and the large amount of art supplies was perfect for art therapy.I loved the outings on the weekends (we went to Dr. Bob's House one Saturday and it was life changing! I was able to do my 3rd step in the same room as he did). I would recommend APR for anyone who is struggling with addiction. I am loving life in recovery and thank everyone at APR for everything they did for me. I love you all!
