I've dealt with addiction for quit some time. I've been in and out of a few treatment centers , php , and iop programs in the past year all in which i thought they were the ones that were going to set me in the right direction but i was wrong. but since I've come to Aftermath there is just a whole different vibe that im getting . the love ,laughter and atmosphere i feel when I walk through those doors are almost euphoric . I get this warm feeling inside that tells me this is where im suppose to be , and I know that this time I'm going to get it right . the people that work here are by far the most genuine people I've ever met . they actually care about your life and what your going through and thats a comforting peace that I've never had before . I can't thank these people enough for what they are doing to help me become the person I was suppose to be all along . if I were to have done this over from the first program I would have chose Aftermath . I am truly grateful for matt , Jenna , John, Cody and the rest of the staff for all that you guys are doing for my recovery . from the bottom of my heart thank you . 1OVE

I have known Matt Ganem for over 20 years, most of those years I was in and out of prison, programs either on parole, probation or on the run from the law. I would see Matt occasionally, one time I ran into him and his son Christian . I was using / getting high at the time. I was ashamed of myself for relapsing but Matt never judged me or pushed recovery on me. He told me he loved me. I walked away from that with a sense of purpose. I didn't get clean for years after that, but its in moments like that is where I saw recovery working. He is a true leader in the recovery world. We need more people like Matt and the team at Aftermath. Love you back brotha. Shawn Cannizzaro
