what people are saying

  • I had hit rock bottom and had to get away from my environment and triggers of my home town. Red Rock was there for me. They lovingly helped me change my life and learn to care for and about myself. For that I am forever grateful to Red Rock and their amazing team. I now have the life I have always wanted but never knew I deserved.

    Kathryn, 33 Client
  • I have been working with Red Rock since we opened our doors and I can say it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I truly look forward to coming to work everyday, which I realize is something that not everyone can say. I get the opportunity to watch young men and women transform their lives on a daily basis. The growth that we see here is pure and unparalleled. I will always be grateful to have been a part of our process here.

    Sam Employee
  • Red Rock has given me the tools to truly be sober. The combination of groups, sober living and working the 12 steps has allowed me to start a new lifestyle that's not only healthy but fulfilling. I know I made the right choice on coming to Red Rock and am excited about my future.

    Jesse, 28 Client
  • When I arrived I made a decision to surrender to this process completely because I knew this was life or death. My goal was to stop being a slave to drugs and alcohol because I knew they were ruining my life and hurting my loved ones. This program gave me not only that miracle, but SO much more.
