Up until two weeks ago I never would have expected to be writing anything like this.

    I am a mother of an addict who chronically relapses. While I appreciate these types of businesses that offer this very needed therapy and support, I would not want one in my own neighborhood. The comings and goings of facilities such as these are not conducive to a quiet, family, residential neighborhood. I hope that Blue Sands finds another location. I know and have seen first hand how this will affect the serenity of Paradise Valley and it’s residents and it’s not what you want. Trust me!!!
