Because of the compassion and support of the Heartland staff I was able to celebrate my 18 years wedding anniversary, with my husband. Although I was hundreds of miles away during his treatment the staff made me feel like I was right by his side. They kept me updated with progress and were ALWAYS responsive!! Recovery is a reality and Heartland helped my husband see it!!


Staff really care about the patients. It's not over crowded so that means your not just a number. The country setting is surreal. Heartland is a great place, AA/NA meetings are the. best The group setting is small so no one goes overlooked. Staff will go above and beyond to make you comfortable.
