I have nothing but the upmost respect for SLA this is my second go around and since I have been at the Atlanta location I have worked up to my 6th step and I have a HG and a church that I love. Ken and Amir are adamant about our recovery and truly show us love and tolerance. I wish I could leave 10 stars.

My Name is Kenneth Howard.I am a resident of SLA. I came in January 7,2020. SLA has given me the tools I needed for My recovery. They got me plugged into God and Recovery. I came in broken and defeated. Thanks to them I have learned to be able to be a positive role model for New residents. To show them that it works if you work it and you have to want it. I am now employed with SLA as Guest Services. I love what I do and being able to show that it does work. I have graduated in July of 2020, and have been sober and clean for 16 months. Thanks to SLA, AA and my sponsor.

This isn't the first sober living environment i've lived in but i'm confident after just a couple weeks here that this is the one i will suceed in. I've lived in a lot of poop hole places infected with negativity and false hope engulfed in fake motives and i can honestly say that this place is different. The staff here are more than helpful and the vibe here is not just focused on recovery, but naturally make you want to give all to get it. This place makes sobriety attractive and fun. Jason and Recayah go out of their way to not only make sure you get settled in and understand all the rules and guidelines, but to make sure youre comfortable as you settle in as well. They set you up with the tools and mindset to strive for a better life. Honestly have no complaints and am glad and very grateful to be apart of this program. Forget other places. If you want to recover from a hopeless state of body and mind, stop procrastinating and get you ass here. The future's looking beautiful. Blessed.

Before arriving at SLA, I've tried these transitional sober living programs, and none of them had helped me as much as SLA has. Most of these types of programs are just work camps, but SLA is different and you can really tell the staff cares for the guests.

So far so good, I have only been here a few days but I feel like I'm in the right spot. I was sent here with nothing but the clothes on my back, and they had a clothing closet which I was able to get some clothes. My first day here I attended a Freshman Orientation which showed me that all I have to do is look at the next 24 hours. The staff here in Atlanta 1 have been a tremendous help. Ken, Amir, and Dylan have not hesitated to go out of their way to assist me. I have applied for Food stamps and will be working in the next few days. No Complaints here.

I came to sober living America stressed out , anxious and physically ill, I was ready to go back and use because of what I was going through, but instead I picked up the phone and reached out! When I called SLA they immediately picked up and first listen to me, then they went over their program and accepted me the way I was. Again “ Accepted me the way I was”! To be honest it was a blessing from my higher power! Since I have been here everyone has been amazing, everyone has helped restore my sanity, spiritual, And health well being, ( mind, body, and soul) . I have been able to relax and smell the coffee. I look forward to every day that I am being blessed with. This is by far the best choice, The best thing that has ever happened to me! Thank you! I am so grateful for the people in the program. For any one that is going through the something similar or has a loved one that is suffering pick up the phone, and reach out . There are people out there who really care and want to help.

KY daughter is 38 yrs old and had spent most of her adult life addicted. 5 yrs addicted to Heroin.
Checked her self into a program and it was successful and she has been clean 2 yrs. She is in need of financial help to get her back on her feet and her new clean and sober life going. She acquired a lot of debt and legal issues during her addiction that she still has hanging over her.
I am not financially able to help or I would in a second. She has come so far and we are really so blessed and proud of her to fight that addiction. I think it is one of the worst. She has enrolled in some online college classes and is excelling. If you could help or know someone that could. We would be so grateful. Thank you and God Bless.

Initially my view of SLA wasn't the greatest but as I've continued to stick and stay, my opinion has changed. The services offered are truly amazing and a Godsend. If you suffer from addiction or alcoholism, Sober Living America is definitely a place to get clean while getting your life together and on track. The services offered are definitely worth the cost. What is your life worth to you. If you're considering going to SLA, it could be a life saving decision.

I've been a drug addict and alcoholic for 20+ years. I've been in and out of several different rehab centers all over the united states. I came to SLA Louisville almost 2 years ago broken and strung out from alcohol and meth. I was running like I had been my whole life and didnt really know what to do. I was ready to give up on life and had no reason left to go on so I thought. SLA took me in and gave me a place to stay and gave me the tools I needed to live and enjoy life on life's terms. Today my life is better than it has ever been. Because of them I have a great job and make more money than I've ever made in my life. I have a true relationship with my family. I also have people that I've met here that have become just like apart of my family that I'm truly grateful to that have showed me the way. It has truly been a life changing experience thank you Sober living America for saving my life and teaching me a new way to live.

Before coming to SLA Louisville I had no place to stay and was jobless. I also had a bad meth and alcohol addiction. I have been clean for a little over a month now and have been working and learning how to live life again clean and sober. when I came here I had given up on life and was ready to die. Today I have so much to live for and am learning how to live and enjoy life without the use of drugs and alcohol. Thank you SLA

I am grateful for Sla Atl 1, it has allowed me the opportunity to be able to get my life back in order. I will not tell you that this is the perfect program or residence because to each his own. But for me it is, I have been able to attend AA meetings and I have found a sponsor. I am currently reading thru the Big Book and I am learning about myself. Everyday I am faced with challenges as every addict is, but I am able to face those challenges with the help of God and my peers. When I first got here I was not satisfied with the living arrangements, but I was grateful that I had someplace to lay my head. I was homeless before here and my family had completely turned their backs on me (not that I blame them). Today I am willing to do whatever it takes to stay clean & sober and SLA has pointed me in the right direction.

Sober Living of America has helped me begin making the changes in my life that will lead me to my first potential. As an alcoholic and addict I've always lacked direction and a sense of purpose and self, but SLA -with it's staff and members- is helping me find the innermost parts of myself that not only aid me, but my community. I am so happy, grateful, and blessed to call SLA home. They gave me a chance and a home when no one else would. I will forgever be grateful to them for that. This nonprofit organization is unmatched and I'd recommend it to anyone seeking guidance on their path of lifelong sobriety.

They helped show me the way, teaching me about the 12 step program of AA showing me how to get a sponsor. My life is so much better today.

I've been here at Spartanburg campus since late March 2020. They have provided a safe, stable and sober community living environment. While they encourage us to maintain a professional work schedule, sobriety comes first. The director has made sure to maintain a personal relationship with each client. Sadly we've seen many leave, but it's been there own doing. Wish for more off campus activities with the guys.

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.
