Misery. Agony. Hardship. Depression... All this and more was the girl I was when I was in the car riding with my mother from Florida to South Carolina. I came a girl and am living as a WOMAN now. The responsibility and nurturing that I now poses are just a few to mention. Honesty. Open Minded. Heartfelt... are another few to mention. Sober Living America has given me not only my life back but my family, new friends, and most of all ME. I am living a life beyond my dreams. Although I am not at an even keel, I am where I am going; towards true freedom. I have learned to live with others and actually live. Do you know the meaning of life? Me neither, but where I am from the girl I was to the woman I am in this program; is a miracle. Thanks to Sober Living America I can live a life clean and serene.

Extremely friendly and welcoming staff greeted me with a warm & welcoming smile. Sober Living America was my first experience with any type of rehabilitation or sober living environment and I am positive my decision could not have been improved in any way. I would refer SLA to anyone, anytime, anyplace without any hesitation. Thank you Sober Living America for a Sober Living Brandy.

Sober Living America has turned my life around. The staff is awesome, they care about my sobriety and help me through daily to stay clean. The program is amazing. The daily morning meetings are a great way to start my day off and give lots of inspiration. They have helped me find a job and start learning how to live as a productive member of society. My attitude has improved tremendously through this program. If I need help they are here all the time. If I call with a concern they don't hesitate to answer and quickly address whatever the issue is. I can say that this program has given me an environment to help me stay clean. They've given me the tools to live life clean, and they've given me hope for a better life.

The nonprofit organization Sober Living of America welcomed me in with open arms. They made sure that I had and still have all I need. The residents here have also been welcoming and helpful. I have remained sober and will continue to stay sober as long as I have the support that SLA offers.

I am so thankful for finding Sober Living America as a place for my daughter to go after detox. I truly wish that we had known about your organization the first time she came out of rehab. She now has a purpose in life, feels like she belongs, and looks better than she ever has.

My brother had struggled with addiction for the past 10 years. It was hard to get him into a place without needing health insurance or money up front. If you are looking for a treatment program for anyone struggling with addiction this is the place.

Sober Living of America has had a dramatic impact on my life and I have experienced positive results from my life as a resident here. My director Brooke Burke goes over and beyond her call of duty to make sure staff and residents feel comfortable and encourages us everyday in a way that makes us feel like we are needed and wanted back in society as upstanding citizens. The staff here in Louisville just cannot be praised enough as a whole. As a resident here I encourage anyone who has difficulty with life in general to check out Sober Living of America and give them a chance along with your personal willingness to allow the change to come into your life that you deserve!

I came into this program with nothing. I had lost my relationships, spirit and most important I lost myself. This place changed my life. It got me back on my feet, gave me all the tools to stay sober and restored my relationships. I am so thankful for this program. I would definitely recommend it to anyone struggling with addiction.

Sober Living America has been a life saver. When I came to Sober Living I was homeless, broke, and didn’t know which way to go. I was in a 30 day treatment center with no money for further treatment. I knew I wouldn’t make it if I didn’t get into a long term center. I found out about Sober Living, called them, and they accepted me with no problems. Since I’ve been here, I have been reintroduced to Alcoholics Anonymous, found a sponsor, and strengthened my relationship with God.

Clean apartment style living. Staff was very supportive, and helped me through many challenges I faced during my time there. I am now on a new better path and would not be where I am today without this program.

I've been in Greenville a short weak and when I came in sick and I thought everybody was full of crap when they said it would get better but each day has gotten easier and the staff is so supporting. I'm excited about my recovery and eager to see what the program has to offer.

To say I came to Sober Living America with no clue would be an understatement! I came to Nashville in July 2016 from a 28 day program. I knew I wanted to change but did not know how, or if it was humanly possible. When I arrived Danielle and Mikel made me feel very welcomed. My Mother and Step Dad braught me in. We all sat in the office and they both answered my family's questions and concerns. Since then not only have I completed the program but I have been given the opportunity to help others. It has broadend my perspective not only in life, but about God, myself, and my relationship with others. I am forever grateful for SLA and the things I have learned here will go with me in every area of my life! Today I know that I am the problem and if I do not realize that there would have never been a solution! Thank you Danielle, Mikel, Brandy, and every single guest here that has helped me in my journey! Love this place and love you all!! God Bless.

I am the father of a 25 year old son, David, who became addicted to drugs while attending college. He dropped out of school his sophmore year, and the situation seemed hopeless. He had overdosed several times on heroin, and I was sure that I would one day soon have to bury my only child. The hospitals would help him get the drugs out of his system, and he would be sincere in his commitment to stop using, but he would always go straight back to using drugs.
After my son's last trip to the hospital, my wife and I prayed for an answer and were determined to find our son a long term solution. We researched the options available and decided that Sober Living America (SLA) may be the answer. When my son got discharged from his last hospital detox, we picked him up and took him directly to a SLA Campus.
We were met at the office by a caring staff, who allayed many of our worries, and took our son in and treated him like a brother. The staff not only made sure his needs were met, but required that he live a disciplined lifestyle. This entailed employment, keeping his home clean, and attending daily AA/NA meetings both on and off campus.
In a months time, David began to look like our son again. He looked healthy, had friends, and was working. Five months later, our prayers were answered, and our son graduated the SLA program. He was free of his drug addiction, had an AA sponsor, and had a great network of support in both Alcoholic's Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. He was working a good job and was enrolled in school again.
Thank you to everyone in the entire SLA community. This includes: the administration that made the admission process easy; the on Campus Staff that reinstilled our son's self-esteem; and the other residents that treated him like a brother and shared in his sucess.
My wife and I are deeply grateful for the help Sober Living America provided in saving our son's life.
Our prayers were answered.

I feel that this is a good program and it actually works if you apply yourself. I'm learning how to stay sober day by day and have transportation to my meetings and work. I now have a good support system and mending loose ends with my family to build healthier relationships. Staff at SLA has been good to me and I'm very grateful.
