By: Helana Cabral, Transformations Alumna and Director of Alumni Services You don’t graduate sobriety. This is why being part of an amazing alumni family like the one we have at Transformations Treatment Center is so important. One of the things I love about our Alumni Department is that everyone is an alumnus of Transformations, so we can relate to clients on all levels.

Well I got another creepy e-mail. This one was from Resentment. To: Tamara Evans From: Resentment Cc: Addiction, Relapse, Death Subject: How’s that working out for you? Oh hey.
