When I discovered this program I was beat down and broken. Sick and tired of being sick and tired and I mean literally. The staff here welcomed me with open, loving arms and loved me until I learned to love myself. With that being said they are a no nonsense organization that will not enable distructive behavior while teaching individuals how to use the tools of recovery. Through working a 12 step program I have gained a new way of life and I am forever grateful to this program and these people who not only showed me how to live sober they loved me through it.
I was on the waiting list for only three days and got the call! I have only been here a month but my PO has put me on non report, my parents meet me at church and my kids WANT to hang out with me!
Chris Burns got me a job making 13 an hour on the third day I was there and has been nothing but open and professional. They pick me up and take me to work every single day, took me to get gov assistance and helped me get my license back
I was strung out on the spice and addicted to kratom, This was the only program my mom could findn that tested for it. I was super pissed at first but now Im clean and not spending 25 a day on some synthetic garbage.
I didnt have a relationship with Jesus before I came here but through the 3pm meetings and Life Lessons with Pastor Andy Stanley, I now walk with Christ. Thats the first and foremost thing I have gained with LP.
Treated fairly, nice apartments, good jobs. Jesus.
As with most addicts, my parents eventually stopped messing with me, as was deserved with the stunts that I pulled. Christy and Randy have done a solid and stepped into those roles and helped me work on the relationship that I have mangled. Coming from a program off of Shallowford Access Road, the owner treated me like some junkie profit center and less than a human. My children now call the Director Uncle Randy and I can rest easy knowing he will always be in their lives. Although he is a Cowboys fan, I love the man to death,=.
Heroin is bad in Atlanta, I bounced back between houses for four years before the court mandated to be to care of Mr. Craft. When I first got there, I thought he was just another version of the other Executive Directors that I had been around. That lasted about a day. He is like the father I never had and gave me the tough love and guidance that I apparently required. LOL.
My child was addicted to the heroin for eight years. She now is clean, works a job that Jesus would approve of and has custody of her kids. Thank you Randy and Christy for never giving up!
I was with another sober living program for two years prior to coming to this program roughly eight months ago. While with the other program, I continually used drugs and drank because I was allowed to stay as long as I paid my dues on time or agreed to a fine of sorts. I finally had the gumption to leave the program and follow my friends to SLR after they talked it up for a month and it was the best move I have ever made. I am so happy here and glad I left where I was at, which was just a workcamp at best.
This place really changes lives!!! I got my kids back after 11 long months a job and a house! It's more than a sober living, it's a family we never knew we needed
Changed my life in every way. Has provided me a stable way of living I always failed at alone. Great community atmosphere with all the support you need. You have to do tye footwork but tye results are life altering.
