  • Highland house was my last stop after 2 weeks of detox, and a 3 months of rehab, this was my 1/2way house. It made all the difference leaving my home turf, its a dead little town but it's keeping me sober, The staff present when I was there were fantastic, Still talk to a few of them ..After almost 34 yrs of heroin addiction my sobriety came from leaving the comfort of home and people I knew.
