"It is St. Joseph's community approach to healing, involving staff from all departments, that has lead to the agency's success in the addiction treatment field, and as a sustaining member of the Tri-Lakes community. We are most pleased to receive the Best Companies designation, as the award serves to further affirm our commitment to hope and healing."
