NorthStar Transitions was there for us when our son was struggling with heroin addiction. NorthStar did an intervention with our son when his addiction was spiraling out of control and found our son a treatment center to go to that fit within our budget. What’s more is that Mike Ferrell flew with our son from Denver to Minneapolis to make sure he was successfully checked into the treatment center. Thank you Mike Ferrell and NorthStar Transitions for helping to save our son’s life.

“After being in a 28 day treatment center, I was referred to NorthStar Transitions for aftercare. Today, I have over 9 months sober, a part-time job and am back in college. I have a new group of friends that I feel like I’ve known forever. My relationship with my parents is better than it has been in years. My depression and anxiety are gone. I can’t imagine where I would be today if it wasn’t for the support I received at NorthStar Transitions. I am very grateful for the time I spent in the NorthStar program.”

“When I enrolled in the NorthStar program I was on the verge of being expelled from college due to my substance abuse. I was on and off of academic probation and had been arrested several times on drug and alcohol related charges.

After attending a wilderness treatment program I decided to go to NorthStar Transitions for aftercare for a fresh start (I am from New York). I really enjoyed all of the fun activities I did with my life skills counselor and activities with Phoenix Multisport. Now I am back in college, attending AA meetings and recently made the Dean’s List. I credit NorthStar’s individualized program for helping me to get where I am today.”
