Review for Atlanta Union Mission Corp., Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a resident at Atlanta Union Mission/Village Atlanta over 11 years ago. I had a wonderful experience. I did not complete the program for personal reasons. However; the tools I received in the Personal Development Program have kept me clean and sober these past 11 years. I have gone on to become a productive member of society, starting my own business and with a greater sense of self and belief in God. Everyday I thank God for allowing to have had the opportunity to have gone through the programs at Atlanta Union Mission. In turn I have sent a few of my willing clients to the program. To date I know of two who have sucessfully completed the program and are still clean and sober. Thank you Atlanta Union Mission

Ways to make it better...

My experience would have been better if my counselor at that time was a person who had on some point in her life walked in my shoes. Instead of having preconcieved notions of what an addict was.
