This place has saved me from a life on the streets. After being released from incarceration I had no place to go and things looked quite grim, but because of SLA College Park I have a home that provides much more than shelter, I have a family. Due to the wonderful support of the staff and the encouragement received I am well on my recovery path and know that with the stability I receive here that I will have a sober and prosperous future.

Sober Living College Park has been the best thing that has happened in my life in a long time. I came here unemployable, and not worthy of life. Now I have a job, and I am learning how to live life on life's terms.

#Nash 1 -Sober Living America has so far been a huge inspiration to me and has given me hope that a full recovery is possible. The women and men here are very supporting and encouraging with a positive atmosphere. Our recovery matters. People before Personalities! SLA curriculum helps build the foundation to a solid recovery and to once again, be a productive member of society.

I do believe God has been moving me in the direction I should go. I made it to SLA After completing the 28 day program at JACOA in Jackson, TN. Since being here My life has started to take a turn for the better! I am starting to rebuild my life taking it one day at a time.The curriculum is awesome and Ms. Paula is A Godsend she has really given me the encouragement and tools to begin to lead a life of sobriety, and I look forward to seeing what my life has to offer me living in a sober community and attending 90 meetings in 90 days and obtaining a sponsor is my current goal that im working towards. SLA is the best place for me right now. I'm excited to see what my life will be like in the near future.

# Nash 1- I came to Nashville SLA nearly 3 months ago, and has became one of the best decisions I have made at a time where good decisions were few and far between. My friend had strongly recommended SLA having graduated the program and was now living a life I wanted. I am so grateful for this chance and SLA will forever be apart of my story.

I am a retread as it goes in the rehab world, but since I have came to SLA College Park I have been shown that it is more to recovery than just reading a book and attending meetings. I was introduced to a sponsor who has been guiding me to God and a program which consist of working the 12 steps. I have just completed my 4th step and I can say that it brought up some feelings that i didn't want to feel, but it allowed me to see myself. I am truly grateful to Ken who is an awesome, understanding and caring Recovering Addict/ Director. The time he spends with us newcomers lets us know that he truly wants the best for us.

#Columbia - Work development in Columbia has worked miracles in my life. When I came here I was jaded and addicted. Now I have a full-time job and a heart full of motivation for the people I serve on a daily basis. Thank God for Sober Living America's Columbia location! Great staff, great apartments, great vibes.

I live at the Atlanta Men's 1 campus of Sober Living America. I have had a great experience since I walked in the door. The staff is extremely welcoming and made me feel very comfortable, the facilities are clean, and the emphasis placed on 12 step recovery is exactly what I needed to build a network in AA and begin the process of recovery from my addiction.

I have been here only 2 days and, through the classes i have already attended i feel i have already gained useful information and insight to remain sober. I would suggest this program to those who really want to conquer their addictions. The staff are recovering addicts so they know their stuff.

Sober Living America is a fantastic place that provides you the tools and opportunity to start living life the correct way. You can come in the program with no money to your name and they treat you like family, I knew I was in the right place after being here a few minutes. Recovery comes first here and that's what I needed. The staff really cares about each and every resident and will do anything to help the next person struggling with addiction stay clean. If you need help with alcoholism or addiction this is the place for you!

#Atlanta Men's 1 I'm happy that i came to SLA, especially for all the meetings that we go to and the jobs that SLA provides us with. I came to SLA homeless without a penny to my name and now I am gainfully employed, have a place to live and most importantly I am clean and sober. All of these things are because SLA gave me the tools I needed to start living independently again. The staff cares about recovery first and foremost and that was very welcoming to come into. I would recommend SLA to anyone struggling with addiction! This place saved my life!

#Nash 1- 5 months ago I was scared, confused, alone and broke when I got to Sober Living America Nashville. I didn’t know what to expect but I knew my life was out of control. I reached out for help and am so glad I did. SLA made me feel welcomed and accepted. They helped me get a job, take me to meetings and support me in my recovery. They have become family to me and it feels really good to be part of this Sober Living America family.
