"My experience with Fortitude Counseling & Recovery Center has been nothing but exceptional.  From the minute I walked in, I was welcomed with open arms since day one.  My counselor, Nicole, and I connected right away.  She has given me so much great advice since I met her.  I truly don’t know what I would do without her now.  The only regret I have is that I wish I started years ago.  Nicole and Fortitude Counseling are a life saver."

"Personally, I feel this program helps my sobriety better than AA.  Not that AA doesn’t work, it’s just that talking to Nicole one on one, I feel helps me…like somebody really cares and understands what I’m going through!  She seems to understand this disease!"
