Stories & Testimonials

At SummitStone Health Partners we believe that an important part of recovery is having the strength to share your story. Not only is it self-healing, it can also help others who may be going through a similar experience. We are grateful to each and every client and community member who are willing to bring light to topics that are far too often stigmatized. Visit our Share Your Story page, if you would like to take part in our project.
