 “I miss my family very much…and someday I’m going to go home, and that’s why it’s so important for me to stay healthy.” – Inmate, Fluvanna Correctional Center for Women

“I give my fullest and highest recommendation for some place I love. Common Ground has attracted the best therapists in their fields in this area. The level of care is second to none. It’s for everybody in the family from kids to grandparents. I’ve been respected and enriched by coming here.” – Trent C., acupuncture, massage and meditation client
