“Our commitment to guests is that we will create a plan of care together, that identifies their goals and needs throughout their rehabilitation process,” myPotential Coach Karen Sturtz said. “We focus holistically on each person’s path to wellness, paying attention to a guest’s physical, emotional, nutritional, intellectual, vocational, social and cultural needs.
