Wade added that the best way to create consistent routines is to create an environment that their clients look forward to visiting every day.
Wade started Inner Strength with Dr. Tyler Bordick in 2014 when they opened their first location in Robinson Township.

The new site started operating in January. Thursday’s event, hosted by the Peters Township Chamber of Commerce, was a ribbon cutting highlighting their grand opening, Wade said.
“The room was great. They were very welcoming. They were able to help us connect,” Wade said. “We just want to give back. The bedroom in this way has opened doors for us to be able to do just that.
