After years of putting off rehab, and making excuses for why I couldn’t go, I finally decided to invest the time in making my life better. Selecting Aton was the best decision I made. The facilities are world class, as is the staff. This was the first time in my 25 year career that I took more than 5 days off of work, and it gave me a brand new perspective. I took 30 days to focus on myself, my struggles, and my wellbeing - I would have stayed longer if I could have. The curriculum is straight forward but powerful, and applicable to all life events, even the mundane. The schedule is flexible enough that I was able to stay current on business matters, and the holistic program offered me the opportunity to try things I’d never done before (eg acupuncture, yoga, painting) and those that I wish I did more often (eg massage, physical therapy). And the food... it’s like dining at nice restaurant three times a day. I recommend Aaron for anyone struggling with substance issues who is willing to fully immerse themselves and who appreciates the value of a top-notch facility rooted compassion and self-betterment. -Andrew

Daily individual sessions Monday thru Friday with licensed Psychologist and CD counselors. Simply an amazing clinical program!Lots of holistics to choose from. Yoga deck is fantastic, massage and acupuncture, certainly try the Watsu at house 2 - an amazing experience. Must be highly motivated for help or at least willing to take in everything AToN has to offer.
