“I learned about myself through the sharing of others. The commonalities of strangers made us closer as a group. By the end, I was on a first name basis with some of the folks. And when I had to miss two weeks for work, it’s kinda’ weird but I missed it. I want to Thank Kim for her aide in my recovery not only for the reason I was in class, but for mental rejuvenation and emotional stability.” Anonymous Garner Client
