    I think this place is great. The atmosphere is friendly and calm. In recovery myself, I feel safe and at ease there. It fills me with hope that there are projects like this flourishing, providing an often overlooked 'next step' once treatment is finished. And, the coffee is excellent! Cant wait to come back!
