We’re now a part of the ADK Wellness Connections Network!
What’s that mean, you ask?
It means that we can connect you to an even broader network of services and agencies, all with the shared mission of total community wellness, right from our offices. Which is awesome! Because now, even if we don’t have a specific service here on site, we can get you connected to people who can help in ways we cannot! We are committed to you and your wellness – yesterday, today, and forever!
As always, we’re here to help you in a compassionate and judgement-free manner. So, stop in and chat with Rosemary or Zac today!
