Danielle Van roosendael, Forensic Therapist[What] I love about working for SSG is the ability to make an impact on our client's lives; this is shown day in and day out as client's progress in their treatment. The light is shone on client's transformations with the AB-109 graduations and it is especially warming when clients voluntarily remain with P180 and continue coming in as alumni. This not only demonstrates the meaning of our work, but it also helps peers motivate other peers as positive role models.” Danielle Van roosendael, AMFT, Forensic Therapist, SSG/Project 180, joined SSG in 2015
