Comment from Dave Carignan:
I had the opportunity to stay at CAB in Tewksbury twice in the past 10 years. When I was there a lady by the name of Wendy Worrell ran a fair but structured program. I was offered a chance to cook for both CAB on floor #1 and Lynn TSS was using the upstairs as well. I found a great deal of health benefits there. Good food, a weight room to get back in shape and also she allowed myself and another musician to entertain for the picnic the State Hospitol had for the residence that were staying there. Many of the staff were understanding and profesional. But Wendy really ran a wonderful program and gave me the chance to save my life! I would recommend CAB very highly, if it is still run the same way and the same people.
