“In a world full of good but with too many choices, as well as uncertainties, some people need a drastic change to cope. Pathfinders is an excellent example of how a vision can single-handedly change lives. Their insight, guidance, and directions through recovery resuscitate lives. I cannot recommend a better place for a person’s survival and change.”
