I have been able to overcome a very difficult addiction with opiates with the help of the Discovery house. The staff in Duncansville, are fantastic and I wouldn't have been able to do it with out them. I'm not done yet but with their help I have been able to "not" use since I started. Hats off to the staff in Duncansville.
