Sarah Oliveira McDonald, a long time listener of our podcast and part of the La Hacienda family, extended an invitation on behalf of La Hacienda Treatment Center for our team to visit their incredible campus located in Hunt, Texas. As our listeners know, we are always searching for treatment facilities that provide exemplary services. We volunteered our time with a mission to get to know their staff who are considered family and interview some of their clinical team.
