“DARS helped put me back on the right track, both personally and professionally.”
“The NS DARS program gave me the time and resources to change my life, and that’s exactly what I did.”
“I used to wake up counting my problems. Since completing DARS, I wake up counting my blessings”.
“The DARS program has been very helpful to me. It changed my life by giving me the support and time I needed to start my life in a new and wonderful way that I had not known for a long time, at home and at work. ‘If you do the work, good things will come’”
“DARS gave me the time to refocus on my family and health while also introducing me to the recovery community where others with similar concerns discuss such issues regularly. DARS is a valuable resource for anyone who might benefit from an extended streak of sobriety even if they haven't had any work, family or legal issues attributable to alcohol (or other substances) use...yet."
“I feel so much better physically and mentally - not to mention all the great friends I have made. For the first time in 20 years I feel truly happy, hopeful, and looking forward to what’s next. Before DARS I was just putting in time, now I’m truly living.”
“Before DARS, the life I lived was unmanageable, full of confusion, fear, and resentments. DARS provided the path which equipped me with the tools to save my job, my family, and my life.”
