"They Saved My Life" 

by Suzanne Smith | Apr 2, 2018

franklin-superior-court-96d5cf78e76817adI saw a patient recently who had just come from court for a child custody hearing. She was anxious as she previously had been treated negatively by the courts for being on BNX. Not only was the patient treated well, but the judge congratulated her on her treatment. The patient told the judge how much she liked CleanSlate and how well she believes she is treated here. 

The judge mentioned that another person had given her a negative report about CleanSlate. At that moment, a man in the audience asked the judge if he could be recognized. He told the judge that if she got a negative report about CleanSlate it was because the person giving the report wasn't working our program. He said he also was a patient, and "they saved my life."

Wanted you to know that folks are jumping up from the audience in court to speak on our behalf!
