Our Team

We believe we can solve addiction, beginning in Sioux Falls. 

We are here to help the 17,000 plus individuals in and around Sioux Falls who suffer from the disease of addiction find their way to getting well. 

We’re changing virtually everything we think and do about the disease of alcohol and drug addiction right here in our community. 

We come from varied backgrounds, some of us are survivors of addiction, some of us touched by the disease through friends and family. Our work is driven by passion and commitment to get sufferers well. 

Our commitment is to world-class quality in everything we do. Those suffering from addiction deserve no less.
