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!!!
Review from Guidestar
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.
