#sparta2 SLA saved my life. I came to sla Oct 3rd, 2019 an never been sober before. They showed me a new way to live, how to work a program, get a sponsor, work the steps, and put Gods will before my own will. They helped me get a job an how to hold my self accountable. 6 months later i graduated an got a car. I learned how to be patient an how to be ok w being uncomfortable. Since then i have rekindled my relationship w my family an kids. An in 2 wks i will be moving out n my own apartment working at a good job and having my youngest son who is 14 come move w me.

I'm Timothy brit, I'm from North Carolina I heard about SLA in South Carolina so they could give me a lot of help from my ilness. they have helped. I've been here about four and a half months things are going really well. They got me a job and get a ride back and forth to work and things been really pretty good for me. They get us to AA meetings and show me how to do my homework in my career. Julias is a great director and he helps me out a lot really a lot. They have been pretty great good to me again things are going really well for 4 months, its helped me alot and I hope I can remain sober the rest of my life but SLA is really great. I would love to share but a lot of the people that it's a really good program its works for me thank you for listening.

Sober living has given me a new chance at rebuilding my life. They've gotten me a stable job, comfortable living quarters, and a renewed commitment to 12-step recovery as a means to becoming self-sufficient in a sober environment. I get to attend lots of AA meetings and am learning to be accountable and disciplined in my life. They've given me a chance when no one else would. I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone trying to get clean and sober and get their lives back together!

When I arrived at SLA Spartanburg, I was lost, bewildered and powerless. When I arrived I was met at Greyhound by the Program Director and the driver, and was made to comfortable immediately. When my interview/intake was conducted I was put at ease and explained how SLA worked. It left no doubts in my mind what was required. I was taken to my apartment and introduced to the house senior, who went through the SLA Guidelines with me and explained exactly what was required, and what I could/could not do.
My fellow house guests made me feel at home immediately and I realized that God works in mysterious ways. He found me a Home.
Since arriving at SLA in April 2020 my life has undergone a fantastic transformation. I Adopted the SLA Mission Statement as my own adventure, and I grasped the 12 Step program and my relationship with God as my ALL. Throughout my program I have been supported fantastically by SLA staff and Directors, and I am now thank-full for the people that has referred me to SLA. It is a program worth following, and it has the interest of each guest at heart.
I have joined SLA Staff and I can thank my Higher Power God for giving me the opportunity of being part of such a fantastic, supporting environment.
We have the interest of all our Guest at heart and support them in this Brotherhood and Fellowship.
This is a "HOME FROM HOME" where learn to make amends and to rebuild the bridges we have burnt.

Hi, my name is Valerie M. I came to Sober Living America to learn how to live a sober and happy life. When I first got here I was very quiet and to kept to myself. I'm learning and growing each day thanks to SLA. I'm doing great and moving forward in my recovery. I have become a house senior and enjoy the responsibility. I still have struggles but I have a group of staff and friends here always willing to talk and lend a hand. It is a simple program if you want it, do what we have all done that are here.

SLA Charlotte 2 Campus of North Carolina. I came into this campus in March of 2020. My life was completely hopeless and I was completely at my bottom. SLA took me into their program with no insurance,money,or any self worth. I came in with my cloths in hand. I have since started my journey back to living a sober life and way of living in society again. I had to be completely willing to work the program that was outlined for me. At times it seemed like it would not ever get any better and as I became willing to do the work. The staff here, Patrick O'donnell, Cody Motzner, and Kevin Miller have been great with working with me to make positive choices and changes. Life is a journey not a destination, and look forward to graduating from the program in september 2020. A special Thank You to sober Living America for helping me get my life back.... Much Love to the program and the people who have made it possible.... Kiesten Pflugbiel

I am in sla Charlotte 2. The staff is very attentive to our needs. We make meetings every night. and It changed my life. I have routine. I work honestly today. Basic life essentials and necessities are here. I believe that the place wouldn't run smoothly if it didnt have the staff they have. The drivers get everyone to and from work on time. We all communicate. and we all are recovering from different walks of life. I wish I could take this place with me when I leave here. Because it has menon track. This is thee longest streak I have been doing well without thinking about my addiction.

#sparta2 I have been in Sober Living America for almost a year and have experienced a great deal of growth. I have been given many resources and tools regarding how to stay sober and have been successful in the program. I have learned how to work a twelve step program and how to implement these steps into my daily life. I have gained a strong network of women and achieved stability in many areas of my life. Sober living America has given me another opportunity at life and I am grateful I have given it the chance to work miracles within me and around me. It has been a significant part of my recovery and a huge stepping stone that has prepared me for the outside world. I have gained much experience, strength and hope with being in this facility and plan on continuing on in the program to ensure longer term sobriety.

God is so good. I was looking for a place to go that was centered around God and He led me to Sober Living America. I am in Columbia and I love the apartment style living. The staff is so nice and they helped me get a job and really help me figure out AA nad the core values of the program and why it teaches what it teaches. I really enjoyed the morning meetings and learned a lot. I alos like the fact that they help us go to outtsid meetings so that whenever I graduate I have a netweork.

I thought I was living a normal life until alcohol starting to get the best of me. Then it happened..DUI after DUI (2 yrs apart). It got so bad my own family was sick of me. I went to court on a eviction notice from my Own Family. I was so Drunk at 10am I cussed the Judge out. He sentenced me to 60 days in the County Jail for disorderly conduct. Just so happen my little sister was there when they put the handcuffs on me, she stood up and said your Honor. You know the Family and you knew his Dad he is just like his daddy...hes Drunk now. The Judge said I will get him a bed at Morris Village. 7 days later in the county jail they told me to pack up that my lil brother taking me to Morris Village. This is when I started my journey to getting sober. While I was at Morris Village I kept hearing about a place called Sober Living of America for alcoholics so when I got close to my 28 day stay at Morris Village I gave SLA a call to see if I could get a bed for my problem. Not too many questions later a had a bed at SLA. I have been here for a lil over 10 mths now. Been Sober for over a 1yr now. The best I have ever felt in my life finally Sober. This place has done wonders for me,great staff that works with you sober,found GOD,money in my pocket, family talking to me wanting us to do things together not being pushed away like i have been in the past from them. If you have trouble with Alcohol or Drugs find a program that will help you out if not SLA find one that will help you. It made be your last chance. I can say I'm SOBER. My only one Wish..Wish my Mom could see me this way...SOBER.. Thanks.

Spartanburg SC was the Sober Living America campus I attended. First they took me in off the streets with nothing to my name then this program saved my life by teaching me how to live again while I was recovering from my addiction. They tought me morals and structure which I needed to survive in the real world. They drove me to work, A.A meetings and honestly anything I asked that was reasonable. I owe my life to them and the brotherhood. They made me feel loved again between the staff and other guests, which helped me love myself again. I found my purpose in life while there striving to have what other's there already found. I followed the lead of the trainers which would stop in and bless us with there story. I have a relationship with God now and a purpose to live. I'm still in the program and volunteer to work on staff as work development, so I can give back what was giving to me. I'm so grateful for Sober Living America!!!

So very grateful to SLA Atl 1, I was welcomed with open arms and immediately felt as if I was at home. I was plugged into recovery on my first day and found a sponsor by my 3rd day here. The staff are well concerned about our livelihood. In the words of Ken "We care more about your life than we care about your feelings." That right there let me know that he truly believes in our recovery even if we may not like the truth's that the staff are telling us. I would recommend SLA to anyone needing help with Sobriety and God.

I came to SLA Columbia from another local program. The program that I came from didn't really give me tools for success. In Columbia I got set up for success. They helped me get a great sponsor who I work the steps with and also participate in a lot of leisure activities with him. I really like the church that we started going to recently. We were going to zoom church but I'm happy church is back open. Bryan is great. He really helps me understand the steps. I love the community and how to pay it foward. It is a great program for me.

Before I came to Sober Living America I was destitute. I found a solution here and a way to finally stay sober. They taught me to be able to live again and the right way. Not only do they give you employment opportunities, they teach you how to live sober and give you the right tools and solutions to be able to live life to its fullest.

I Moved to get away from alcohol addiction. My addiction knows no zip codes. This has been a 10 year battle. I have lost 3 relatives to addiction. SLA had their doors wide open. All are welcome. I've been here 6 months now. You can get clean & sober here, but first YOU must put in the work. SLA really should have a better screening policy. I've seen some folks that have no business being here. They truly require more mental health care. Van schedules need to be clad iron. Rules are great but need to be put into action for ALL & not case by case unfortunately. Attending outdoor meetings should be priority one. This is best for building a network. Staff are nice & accommodating, but very overworked & less than poverty payment is unacceptable. Guest can work program & become part of staff even with minimum clean time. This is pretty risky. More focus on meeting & work attendance & less on having 'a zero balance'. We came here to get clean & sober, not work & babysit others. You can achieve it if, you stay focused, positive, HONEST, willing and accepting. We didn't choose to be addict⁹s. When guest choose to be assholes, they can leave.

I came to Sober Living America from Salvation Army ARC in Va. Beach Va. after finishing their program. I am an alcoholic and have been struggling with the disease for several years. I came here to transition back into a regular living society while still being involved in my recovery. I stayed here several months. The fellowship here is really great, the Staff is caring and very helpfull as well as a good recovery centered program. They provide transportation to out meetings as well as their own inhouse meetings. We have a spiritual meeting every day as well as a off campus to Church every Sunday now. They also help you to find a good job and provide transportation to and from work. I went to another recovery house but came back here to SLA. I have been to several recovery houses around the country but SLA is by far the best I have ever been to. It treats the whole man, mind body and soul. I consider it my home for now.

I have been here for one month and I love it. Kereen holds the best meetings and always has good experience, strength and hope and is always supportive, and Patrick and Kevin and Kiersten have been absolutely instrumental in my recovery. They are always available when I have a problem and they are really good listeners. I could not get through this program without them. I have had nothing but a good experience while here and Im very happy with the services I am receiving. I wish the counseling would be through the rest of the time here but Im glad I at least have Scott's phone number to call whenever I need. My roommate has made being here a lot easier as well as the girls in my apartment and I wouldnt trade them for the world.

Proceed with caution! This is, by far, the most poorly managed social services/recovery oriented organization I have ever encountered or experienced in my life. It is merely an overpriced, glorified homeless shelter. They do not drug test or search anyone's belongings to ensure the safety and/or integrity of the community. While they seem to pride themselves on accepting new clients with no immediate funds available (simply stating they will "find you employment and allow you to pay back any accruing/past due balance") in all reality, you will find that their primary focus is, and will consistently remain throughout your stay, the MONEY, above ALL else, including your recovery. They boast being a 12 step influenced program, yet they barely, if ever, bring you to 12 step meetings or even hold you accountable to attending them. In fact, their staff, who are merely other residents who are "hired" on as "staff", but are paid, minimally, under the table, do not "work a program" themselves. So much for "Lead By Example". The program is a veritable revolving door, thereby promoting chronic relapse. All I can say is "buyer beware", and if you're looking for a decent recovery community, this is a very risky choice.

This program is run like a 3 ring circus. Most of the time they have someone who has less than a year sober, sometimes less than 6 months sober working as a director for an entire campus. They have zero issues taking your money but giving you back what they owe you is like pulling teeth. This company is a complete scam. Do not waste your time or money. They also create fake email accounts and then make reviews so they look better when searched on Google.

Coming in from living on the street I am so grateful to have a bed and a roof over my head. The staff (Cory and Calvin) are great guys that really care about all the residents and take the time to get to know us and they always make sure we have what we need. They make sure we are going to meetings and doing what we're supposed to and I think that is awesome cuz Im used to just doing whatever I want.

I transferred to ATL Men's 1 last week from a different campus. I did not want to transfer at all and was kinda mad that I had to, but after getting here and talking with the staff I could not be happier that I ended up here. These guys really care about the residents and push recovery hard, it was awesome to feel that they actually care about my well being and that they want the best for us. I am starting a new job that sounds like it will be a great fit for me and pays well. I was at the other campus for about 3 weeks and didn't get to go to a clothing closet so I was having to wash the few things I had multiple times a week, Corey and Calvin gave me basically a new wardrobe so I am set-up now. This place seems to run really smooth and the community is pretty tight from what i've seen, I like the atmosphere. We get to go to outside meetings twice a day too. Thank you to this staff and the program in general, I appreciate everything thus far!

I've been at the Atlanta Men's 1 campus going on 2 months now and it has been awesome! I came in with no where else to go and my family barely speaking to me. The staff has always made sure I have what I need and have pushed me to work my recovery as hard as I can. I am already seeing that those promises they were talking about really come true if you put the work in. My family reaches out to me and actually wants to talk to me, they even brought me to see my little brother graduate. No way that would have happened if it wasn't for sla. I am gainfully employed at a job I actually like, I have a great sponsor that is pushing me to work the steps and I have hope for my future for the first time in a long time. I highly recommend this place if you want a better life and an opportunity to start moving forward from active addiction. Thank you to Corey, Calvin and sla for helping save my life.

I have been in SLA for few months in Atlanta 1 recently transferring to a different location Duluth 1.And To be honest it has really added structure to my life especially at this location.Sean Smith the director is a great director.If I had any needs or questions he was there to answer me and help me.My stay has been great and they willing to work with you as long as you are willing to put forth the work yourself.I have been able to rebuild my life and everyone see a change in me.Don't believe the hype cause this program has helped me save my life and build a better relationship with my wife and kids.So I advise anyone if you have a desire to change your life and build stability and a new self confidence when it seems all hope is lost.No point in procrastinating SLA is a good program.If you seen me when I first came I was a hot mess but now I'm striving for perfection inside and outside.All I can say is.Look at me now

So far this program has helped save my life and get it back on track. I have relapsed multiple times in my attempt to remain sober. The leadership has worked with me thoroughly to maintain a plan of action and accountability. They helped me get work within the first 2 days of being there and provided food as well as transportation To and from work as well as for grocery runs. The living arrangements are good and overall a great program. The people there are very understanding and friendly yet adhere to proper rules for the sake of sober living. They also provide letters as needed for court issues or work.

I came to SLA 5 months ago with absolutely no idea how it would change my life. I was hopeless, burned almost every bridge I had, and didn’t know how to love myself or anyone else. During these past five months I have reconciled relationships with loved ones I never thought I would. I have learned more about myself, and formed friendships that I will cherish for the rest of my life. SLA’s patience and understanding with every individual in this program really sets them apart from other organizations and actually gave me the impression that I was cared about and that I can beat my addiction. Forever grateful.

I came to the SLA Atlanta Mens 1 campus 4 months ago not knowing what to expect. The staff welcomed me into the program and helped assist me with everything that I needed to get back on my feet. They helped me gain employment, placed me in an apartment with a few others guys that are apart of the program who helped me get adjusted. This place truly saved my life and I would recommended it to anyone that I know.

A family member told me about SLA and at that point I was willing to do anything as long as I could just get help so I googled Sober Living America, called the help center number that is on the websites main page and after a 5 minute phone call i was accepted into the program with no money down, all I had to do was get a bus ticket to the greyhound station closest to the Atlanta 1 campus and once I arrived there on the bus then staff picked me Up immediately. I’ve been here for 3 months now and this place has truly changed/saved m life. I couldnt recommenced this place enough to anyone seeking help with addiction. I can’t thank all of the staff members enough!

I was literally at rock bottom when i called Sober Living. I came to Atlanta Mens 1. My life was total chaos. I wanted to go to sleep and never wake up. But I made the call and they told me they would take me. I wasn't used to people saying they would take me in. In the two months that I have been here my life has changed so much. I have friends. I have a great job. I have a sobriety network. This place has given me hope and changed my life. The staff here is caring and dedicated. If you are struggling with addiction, do what I did and make the call.

#Spartanburg SLA has taught me a lot. I have been here for over 3 months and did not think I would ever make it. When I came in I was welcome with open arms and they showed me the way to stay sober. The meetings are great and full of knowledge and experience. Would recommend to anyone.

Very clean apartments with staff members that are truly dedicated to making you feel as comfortable as possible while going through what is a very difficult time for most. This has been the best experience for myself and my loved ones. I would recommend SLA to anyone who is willing to do whatever it takes to begin a new life.

Sober Living America has given me a second chance. The opportunity to become self sufficiant and grow within a strong knit community and develop not only a solid relationship with my family, but also with others in a healthy way. Ashton Spears (Marietta 2 Director) has a true and genuine care and respect for the residents here. She has shown me what accountability is and what leading a sober life has to offer. I am truly grateful for SLA and the staff that work very hard to meet my needs and guide me towards a better life.

I am writing a review from the Atlanta Women's Campus. I have been here, voluntarily, since 11/22/19. Although I will graduate this month, I plan to stay a full year, based on my experience, thus far. The staff truly cares for the clients and have the wisdom to pass on to us from their own experience, strength and hope. I think of it as filling my "toolbox" with all the tools necessary to use in order to live a sober and meaningful life when I leave. The living arrangements are also fantastic, in that you can build a great network with other addicts and alcoholics, such as myself., to rely on when life shows up (good and bad.) Program fees are very reasonable, transportation is provided, a variety of outside AA meetings are available, as well. The most important thing for me is the availability of the staff to us, at all times. I give SLA Atlanta 5 star!
