  • Sstar helped me save my life 7 plus years ago. Pretty sure it’s the only detox that you can still smoke cigarettes at. Which was a plus when I detoxed. The staff are amazing, and care about you and want to see you succeed. When the pandemic hit, and IOP and groups had to close, Sstar acted fast to set up programs to still be able to help people. I utilize the groups they use on Zoom, and they have helped me, but I can’t wait til they can be in person again! They have helped me with mental health, addiction, everyday issues, as well as when I’m sick. I have made friendships over the years, and Sstar has its own little community of support. It’s worth it! They are everyday life savers, that deserve more recognition then what they get! Forever grateful for all the support from my army at Sstar! 🙏🏼💜
