#Columbia - I'm just completing my first week of sobriety at Sober Living America. I'm slowly but surely seeing the positive effects its having on my life. Waking up full of energy and a reason to live is more than enough reasons to give it a try. I suggest anyone looking for a new lease on life to take this first step in the right direction. If it can help me I'm sure it can help you.

#Columbia - I have been in Sober Living America before but the one Columbia, SC rocks! The director, Brandon McGuire, is awesome. I graduate December the 1st, but I'm going to stay a little longer. I have gained a lot here, things I never thought I would get back; a life, a job, a bank account! I save money now and it works if you work it! Sober Living America saved my life.

Since being at the Duluth2 location, I've gotten to the foodbank, I've been able to get a job, apply for foodstamps AND they showed me how to get a sponsor. When I first came to SLA I didn't think that I would have a chance at getting my life back together and now that I'm here I feel like I can do this.

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.

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.
