Chrysalis has been a positive part of my life for quite a while. I wouldn’t be who I am today without this place. I came 7 years ago to work on making some changes and have recently come back for a little preventative tune up and some emotional education... I couldn’t be happier with the services at Chrysalis, then and especially now! The councilors are top notch and the array of support here is unsurpassed. I’ve been to a few other outpatient treatment programs and this one surely sets itself aside! I just want to say thank you to the entire team of people that make it happen, the ones I know and especially the ones I don’t know or don’t get to see in action, You are all appreciated!!! Thanks for keeping it real, friends!

Thank you for taking care of me last night. Heat exhaustion; political imbroglio, babies and families.... It all hit me at once. Being at a Dead concert - in your care - must have been the safest place I could be to fall to pieces. Thank you for holding your hands out to catch and comfort me. It was a spectacular show!
