Alano Recovery Homes is a horrible place. DO NOT GO THERE!!! They are only about making money and this whole non-profit dog and pony show is so that the director can make money. The first review is written by her and the second was written by a paid staff member. FRAUDULENT!!!

I moved into the Women's Platte House out of a treatment center in July of 2003. It became the first home I'd had since leaving home as a teenager. I was new to sobriety, and had no idea what it was all about, I only knew I did not want to die from my disease of alcoholism and drug addiction. I was scared, lonely, and really full of ego and selfishness. Platte House help me change me. When I walked in those doors, it felt like I belonged there. I had never felt that way, even as a child. My disease took me to some pretty dark places - homelessness, prostitution, jail; I lied, cheated, stole and manipulated anyone and everyone in the name of me and my disease. Platte House helped me learn to be good, honest, kind, respectful. I learned how to be a good friend, daughter, sister, aunt, person, employee and so much more. I have been clean and sober for more than 6 years - Ill have 7 years in 23 days. WOW! That is a miracle. I want to live today, I'm pretty certain I would be dead if it were not for the Platte House and Alano - Coyt, Dick, Brandon,Kathy, Toni Katy, Donna and so many more. I love you with all my heart and I thank you with all my soul.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My own life, my families life, the lives of so many others they have touched. Alano believes in helping others help themselves.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Accountability, acceptance and love.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do amazing things in the area of substance abuse treatment and recovery. LONG TERM!!! Have a sobriety house in every major city in the country. Save lives, touch lives, save families. Change communities.
