What our Clients have to say about SouthLight

“The thing about SouthLight that I’ve come to know is that it works if you work it.”

Client in the Peer Support Program

“I love SouthLight! If it was not for the staff at SouthLight and the program itself, I would not be who I am today and I would not have known just how important my recovery is. My recovery has gotten so much stronger and I strive for the best every day.

When I first started, I didn’t care whether I lived or died. And today I know that I want to live and help others do the same. I learned so much about myself.

I thank everyone who has helped me. I use what I learned at SouthLight every day and it pushes me to continue to fight for my life.” —Former SouthLight client
