At Safe Harbor we get the humbling experiencing of meeting individuals when they are at one of the lowest points in their life. It is rewarding to be able to assist individuals facilitate change in such a short time period (typically 10 days). I am privileged to be Treatment Director/Supervisor of such dedicated staff members who whole heartedly put in the time and effort to help individuals succeed.
