Complimentary Aftercare for Life: You Are Family
When you come to The Gooden Center, you don’t just go through a recovery “program” — you become a part of a family that will support you always.
After you complete your initial recovery process and go back out into the world, rest assured you will not be doing it alone. Through our complimentary Aftercare for Life Program all of our alumni are guaranteed the support and care needed to handle all the transitions in their lives.
