“Over 21 million Americans suffer from addiction, but less than 1 out of 10 are in treatment.  This is despite more than 2 decades of medical science of how to treat addiction.  START is celebrating its 50th anniversary of providing treatment for substance use disorders for 4,000 persons annually.  If you or someone close to you needs care, START is the place to begin”- Dr. Lawrence Brown, CEO, START Treatment and Recovery Centers
