“I am letting you know how much I have liked working with [Thrive facility] staff. They have been supportive to the mental health- chemical dependent client who has been there for 90 days. They have been helpful getting the client to staffings. They have gotten her to other mental health counseling sessions. They are always knowing where and what the client is doing. The building is always clean. They know what meds she is on. They give me good feedback and also give me good information when I call the office.” — Family Member of Client
