He dedicated his life to providing resources to those struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders, both in Florida and Puerto Rico.

Treatment incorporates Christian faith-based teachings and the 12-step philosophy. It also includes education, life skills and evidence-based practices and dual diagnosis support. For those requiring a higher level of care, the facility also offers residential treatment for adults.
