“As the parents of a child struggling with addiction, we have unfortunately gotten to know a number of treatments and facilities.  So when we were introduced to Karen Gardinier, it was a true breath of fresh air.  Karen is truly passionate about what she does and it shows in her unique and caring approach to treating and dealing with the disease.  She has made a tremendous difference in our child’s recovery, and for that we will always be extremely grateful. Thank you Karen!”
