This organization was a life saver not only to me but it helped save my sons life. I know every outcome is different but I was given the knowledge how to handle and cope with addiction, the hope that things can get better, and the support of people that knew exactly what I was going through. I feel more educated about something I knew nothing about and got help going through the most darkest part of my life. I am forever indebted to this organization.
The first time I went to a P.A.I.N. parent support meeting I had no idea what to expect, but I clearly remember feeling an immediate sense of relief the minute I walked into the group. I was finally in a place where I got real answers and information from real people about addiction, as well as support and first hand advice, all of which have been so important in my journey of addiction with my child. If you think you can handle the issue of an addicted loved one by yourself, think again. One of the best things you can do for yourself is to regularly attend the P.A.I.N. support meetings.
I had never experienced drug addiction with a family member in my life and I did not know where to turn. I was introduced to PAIN and their support, counseling and action plan for my son has allowed me to live my life again. I continue to use their services and will be forever grateful.
Flindt Anderson and the team at PAIN support families through the crisis of drug and alcohol addiction. The family support groups on Wednesday nights are FREE and they provide so much insight, wisdom, support and advice for anyone dealing with an addict in their life.
Provides a place to gain information and support to help your loved one and your family navigate the path to freedom from addiction. Following their proven methods and guidance helps the family to not only survive an extremely difficult time, but provides the hope and ability that you can one day thrive again.
This place does not deserve a 1 star rating. As an employee at The Living Center in Fresno I discovered it was NOT licensed at the time. Troy Doorman refused to pay me. All of the clients are exploited and taken advantage of early in recovery. They are paying for tx in a SLE. Insurance companies were being billed for residential and outpatient Tx while clients received SLE and "other supportive services". There were clients who were SMI and needed to be in a board and care facility rather than a SLE pseudo tx center. Fee's start at 600. to 1500 a month. All clients reported being charged for treatment but never receiving it. The electricity and water has been shut off several times and each client only receives about 150 a month in food IF they are on the food plan, if they are not they have to buy their own food. I would recommend reading ALL reviews of TLC before placing a loved one at this facility and their other facilities I also recommend visiting the facility
